...End-to-End eBusiness Solution Features Applications For Selling To, Buying From, and Providing Service For Multiple Trading Partners...

Ironside Technologies Inc., a global leader in business-to-business eCommerce solutions for manufactures and distributors, today announced the availability of Ironworks 6.0, a significantly enhanced version of its flagship offering. Ironworks 6.0 is a powerful end-to-end eBusiness solution that includes full-featured applications for selling to, buying from, and providing service for trading partners.

“Ironworks 6.0 is the culmination of our ongoing commitment to empower trading partners with the speed and flexibility to forge stronger relationships, while increasing revenues and dramatically improving operational efficiencies,” said Ted Tritchew, product manager of Ironside Technologies. “Our growing list of customers continues to require the highest degree of innovation and functionality in order to seamlessly transact with multiple trading partners. Ironworks 6.0 achieves that and more. Our tiered solutions empower our customers with incredible flexibility and functionality.”

Ironworks 6.0 includes significant improvements to its Order Management, Customer Service and Vendor Management Solutions. Specific benefits of Ironworks 6.0 include:

For Selling – Ironworks 6.0 has improved its Order Management Solution to enable seamless Ironside eCatalog integration, including access to pricing and inventory in search screens in real-time. In addition, eCatalog is available for taking orders even when the ERP systems are unavailable. Also, buyers can now send order files generated by their own purchasing system, eliminating the need for dual entry of orders.

For Service – Providing customer service in self-service environments, Ironworks 6.0 comes complete with a new Returns Material Authorization Application, an Account Status Application, the ability to transmit Invoices, and Advanced Shipping Notices, as well as B2B Chat enhancements.

“We decided to use the Internet and the Ironside System to get closer to our customers,” explains Wilburn Hancock, IT director at Day-Brite Capri Omega. “It was essential that we improve customer services with better access, reduced order cycle times and order management enhancements.”

For Buying – Ironside's Vendor Management Solution simplifies and improves collaboration with vendors by accelerating the procurement process with real-time integration into a company’s inventory management and purchasing systems. The solution allows the supplier to assist vendors with inventory inquiry and planning, purchase order collaboration, item maintenance, and financial inquiry - all processes that can lead to inefficiencies in the procurement cycle.

Ironside’s product additions are available in tiered solutions to address varying market needs. They include:

· Ironside Quick Start - an easy-to-deploy, low-cost, real-time order management solution for organizations looking for immediate eCommerce results. With an implementation cycle of days - not months - Ironside Quick Start offers a powerful B2B eCommerce solution that provides a clear upgrade path to Ironside’s fully integrated product suites.

· Ironside Standard Edition – targeted at organizations that need a turn-key B2B eCommerce solution that includes real-time enterprise integration through Ironside’s standard ERP integrations (SAP, Oracle, BPCS, JDE, Prism, and JBA).

· Ironside Enterprise Edition – targeted at organizations that need a robust, fully functional, end-to-end B2B eCommerce solution.

- Full set of Ironside Solutions available

- Full set of configuration and integration capabilities

- Integration and configuration changes by customer or Ironside-certified partners
