Sterling Commerce Goes Beyond Mobile Commerce: Extends B2B Integration Access and Control to Mobile DevicesMarket Leader in Collaborative Integration Solutions Delivers Industry's First Business-to-Business Integration Applications on Mobile Devices (February 15, 2010)
COLUMBUS, OH -- (Marketwire) -- 02/15/10 -- Building on momentum initiated in January with the introduction of mobile commerce solutions around its order management application, Sterling Commerce®, an AT&T Inc (NYSE: T) company, today announced two new mobile applications -- Sterling Integrator Mobile and Sterling Control Center Mobile. These applications, the first business-to-business (B2B) integration management capabilities extended to mobile devices in the market, are designed to increase productivity and speed responsiveness of information technology (IT) and process administrators.
The new applications broaden access and control of Sterling Business Integration Suite, the company's market-leading collaborative solution for B2B integration and managed file transfer, to mobile devices. By delivering these capabilities on the Apple® iPhone®, Sterling Commerce extends visibility to and ability to manage, govern and respond to critical B2B processes/interactions beyond the on-premise control console or laptop PC.
"In this economic environment where companies are looking to do more with less staff, IT administrators need more flexibility and freedom to manage critical business integration system processes. They need the ability to see and respond to issues without having to leave their kids' soccer game or go into the office in the middle of the night," said Brian Gibb, vice president of integration products at Sterling Commerce. "By extending our market-leading business integration capabilities to the mobile environment, Sterling Commerce is leading the way in providing our customers with more choice in how they define, deploy, and extend our solutions to gain that freedom."
B2B interactions across supply chain processes as well as file transfer processes such as sharing sales data, payments files and customer records are enabling companies to be more agile in meeting their customer demands. A disruption in these processes or data flows could prevent a company from meeting its business objectives. With that in mind, Sterling Commerce is delivering anytime-anywhere mobile handheld device access with:
-- Sterling Integrator Mobile, which enables users of Sterling Integrator®, the market-leading B2B gateway solution, to monitor key integration resources to ensure that the most time- and content-critical business documents, transactions, and events (such as purchase orders, acknowledgments, advanced shipping notices and shipment status messages) are successfully exchanged on schedule.
-- Sterling Control Center Mobile, which provides users of Sterling Control Center, a management solution for Sterling Managed File Transfer, the market-leading solution for secure data movement, with access to file transfer system status, exception alerts, and system controls that file transfer support personnel need to help ensure that decision-critical business information (such as product and pricing updates, inventory levels, sales data, and promotional performance) is securely delivered to the people and systems that need it.
