Freeway Commerce, one of the fastest growing EDI and integration software providers in the UK, has launched a new product for companies looking to establish a cost-effective ecommerce hub solution and enable their supply chain in a matter of weeks.
Called Spectrum 3, the product can process high volumes of electronic messages at great speed and handle virtually unlimited numbers of trading partners whether they are suppliers, customers, distributors, agents or a mix of them all.
Spectrum 3 is ideal for large organisations with multiple suppliers and complex supply chain logistics, whether they are manufacturers, distributors or retailers.
Developed as a future-proof solution, Spectrum 3 is truly scalable and can be expanded and adapted to suit both the changing requirements of the hub organisation and its trading partners. The software handles communications using EDI networks, FTP and AS2 and has inherent webforms and XML capabilities.
Using Spectrum 3, the hub organisations existing accounting, manufacturing or enterprise resource planning systems can be seamlessly linked using a single interface to its trading partners systems. There is no obstacle to setting up these links because Spectrum 3 can handle such a wide range of message formats and specifications.
This means invoices, delivery notes, orders and payment advices can all be exchanged electronically without having to re-key any data. This is both time efficient and eliminates a possible source of administration error.
Announcing the launch of Spectrum 3, Freeway Commerces Sales Director Paul Kaye said: Spectrum 3 provides larger businesses with the opportunity to trade with other organisations regardless of their technical capability. Whether it is using traditional EDI technology or AS2, a simple email or a webform, this product can handle any delivery method. This really does open up the potential for expanding a trading partner community.
What is more, as part of the implementation of Spectrum 3, Freeway Commerce offers a project management service to bring existing and new trading partners on board. This means a clients supply chain can be enabled in a matter of weeks. We see this an important part of the overall solution. The aim is to be trading electronically with as many different partners as possible in the shortest possible time.

All products are designed to deliver state-of-the art ecommerce capability at an extremely competitive price. Based in Preston and Manchester, Freeways clients range from small businesses to multinationals.
