GXS Recognised in Book Industry Communication Supply Chain Excellence Awards

GXS Trading Grid(R) Gains Accreditation Within Publishing Industry (March 13, 2012)

SUNBURY, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwire) -- 03/13/12 -- GXS™, a leading provider of business-to-business (B2B) e-commerce, today announced it has been accredited in the Book Industry Communication (BIC) Supply Chain Excellence Award scheme. This accolade recognises GXS's long standing involvement in B2B commerce, supporting companies of all size within the publishing industry, sharing best practices and enabling electronic trading through a range of affordable solutions that reflect the different degrees of IT sophistication and complexity within the publishing industry.

For several decades, GXS' cloud-based B2B e-commerce platform, Trading Grid, has facilitated the exchange of supply chain information, ranging from stock positions and product catalogs to purchase orders and shipment notices, between participants in the publishing value chain. GXS works with many of the leading publishers, distributors and retailers, offering SaaS and cloud-based B2B integration solutions that reduce many of the traditional barriers to electronic trading.

Karina Luke, Book Industry Communications, added, "GXS has earned Supply Chain Excellence Award accreditation after having clearly demonstrated the ability to support publishers, booksellers and distributors for a significant period of time. GXS Trading Grid makes B2B integration simple and affordable for everyone involved in our industry." In recent years, the introduction of e-book technologies and self-publishing models created new competitive dynamics into the publishing value chain. As more publishers, distributors and retailers adopt a demand driven supply chain, the need for real-time information sharing between business partners only increases importance.

"The use of SaaS and cloud-based services for B2B e-commerce enables publishers to establish connections faster with business partners and to share a more diverse range of data," comments Denise Oakley, director of international marketing, GXS. "We are delighted to be recognised for our role in the supply chain and look forward to helping the publishing industry turn to the next chapter in its evolution."
