StreamServe Further Extends Support for eBusiness Enablement and eBusiness Collaboration Solution Addresses Businesses' Entire Spectrum of eBusiness Communication Boston, MA, and Stockholm, Sweden (October 11, 2000) - StreamServe Inc., an eBusiness communication software company, has enhanced its flagship product, StreamServe. The enhancements will help companies meet their biggest eBusiness challenge - effectively communicating with customers, suppliers, and eMarketplaces. "In today's net economy, businesses must communicate using a variety of information channels and formats," says Hans Otterling, StreamServe - CEO, "Successful eBusinesses need to exchange information via print, email, fax, flat file, EDI, and the Internet, while simultaneously preparing for XML and mobile commerce. All this is possible using StreamServe." The StreamServe solution now encompasses three evolutionary dimensions of business communication: Document Delivery & Presentation, eBusiness Enablement, and eBusiness Collaboration. Document Delivery & Presentation - Common business documents, such as purchase orders, invoices, advanced shipping notices, still drive business-to-business commerce. The application offers strong back end connectivity to most of the major business application vendors, such as Oracle, J.D.Edwards, and SAP. It pulls information and publishes the document across communication channels, such as print, fax, and PDF. Document output can be tailored and personalized to support unique business relationships. The information can also be archived for future customer service efforts and reference. eBusiness Enablement - The application presents superior eBusiness capabilities. The strongest feature is its support for the various dialects of XML. Trading partners can exchange business information using Open Application Group, RosettaNet, BizTalk, and other major vertical and application XML standards. StreamServe offers a comprehensive architecture supporting the wireless strategies, managing competing standards and a variety of platforms, which allows companies and users to build everything from internal "light-weight" processes to more complex business processes using the platform for eBusiness Enablement. eBusiness Collaboration - Using StreamServe organizations can support collaborative business processes; companies can publish request for proposals (RFQs) to suppliers or eMarketplaces, post purchase orders, execute inventory reorders, and handle other complex business transactions. StreamServe automates collaborative business processes with true bi-directional application integration into the major business applications, such as Oracle and SAP. It also features additional support for message queuing standards such as Microsoft's MSMQ and IBM's MQSeries. The StreamServe solution provides a flexible, eBusiness communication framework. It can evolve with a business' communication requirements. Enhanced functionality is built upon StreamServe modular and component technology; existing customers can easily upgrade from traditional output management to full eBusiness capabilities. The application is distributed through StreamServe's direct sales and indirect channels. About StreamServe StreamServie is a provider of eBusiness communication software.
