RMI, DynamicWeb Offer E-Commerce Extranet

Nationwide Internet service provider Rocky Mountain Internet Inc. (RMI) will provide Internet access to the Rite Aid drug store chain, as part of an agreement with e-commerce firm DynamicWeb Enterprises Inc..

Under terms of the agreement, RMI will be the preferred ISP for Rite Aid's supplier companies using DynamicWeb's Web-based EDIxchangeBuy e-commerce service. No financial terms were disclosed.

EDIxchangeBuy is designed to electronically exchange business documents over the Internet. DynamicWeb estimated that extranet supply ordering has saved its customers thousands of dollars as opposed to the high expense of staffing a call center to service suppliers.

"EDIxchangeBuy is a powerful tool that leverages the universal access of the World Wide Web for electronic commerce. . . ," said Steve Oakie, vice president marketing and sales for DynamicWeb. "With RMI, our customer Rite Aid and its suppliers will have access to a state-of-the-art nationwide network and top-notch customer service."
