XMLSolutions Launches Support For xCBL From Commerce One

MCLEAN, Va., April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- XMLSolutions Corporation, a worldwide provider of strategic business-to-business, XML-based software and services, today announced XEDI for xCBL, an out-of-the-box solution that enables B2B e-commerce across the supply chain utilizing xCBL from Commerce One, Inc. (Nasdaq: CMRC - news). XMLSolutions' XEDI is the only solution that fully supports EVERY ANSI X12 and EDIFACT document produced by major EDI Translators from GE Global Exchange Services, Harbinger, Sterling Commerce, and SPS Commerce.

xCBL, Commerce One Common Business Library, enables cross-industry exchange of business documents such as purchase orders, invoices, product descriptions, and shipping schedules. The integration of XMLSolutions' XEDI with xCBL provides every company currently utilizing EDI the ability to connect to xCBL enabled applications like Commerce One Global Trading Web(TM) and Commerce One MarketSite.

``The addition of support for the translation of EDI documents to xCBL will provide every company currently using EDI the ability to rapidly link into Commerce One's industry leading marketplaces,'' stated Kevin Kail, Chairman/CEO XMLSolutions. ``Through the integration of XEDI with xCBL, buyers and suppliers are now able to buy and sell anytime, anywhere without re-tooling their legacy systems. Past IT investments are leveraged, while moving forward with leading edge supply chain technology.''

XMLSolutions products enable companies to rapidly implement XML-based solutions utilizing the XEDI Translator(TM), ExeterXML Server(TM), XMLZip(TM), and the recently announced Schema Central(TM) product. The XMLSolutions product family supports open standards and protocols such as RosettaNet, FpML, cXML, xCBL, ebXML, EDI (X12 and EDIFACT) and Microsoft BizTalk.

Delivering Solutions

XMLSolutions is committed to expanding the reach of existing EDI systems to new and existing paper-centric trading partners. In keeping with this commitment, XEDI Translator delivers solutions that provide:

The Broadest Support for EDI

The XEDI Translator provides the ability to translate EVERY ANSI X12 and EDIFACT document to XML. The resulting XML can then be mapped to emerging XML standards such as Commerce One Common Business Language (xCBL), RosettaNet PIPs, Commerce XML (cXML), Financial Products Markup Language (FpML), and Electronic Business XML (ebXML).

Expanded Trading Communities

By delivering EDI to the Internet through the use of XML, the Global 2000 are now capable of adding new partners to their supply chain that previously were not accessible through electronic means.

Cost Reduction in Trade Transaction Processing and Fulfillment

The ability of the XEDI Translator to leverage existing EDI systems means that the millions of dollars spent years ago to connect backend systems to EDI systems are not thrown away, but simply expanded to include a greater realm of trading partners.

New Trading Partner Opportunities for the Global 2000

With the ability to reach smaller companies electronically through a simple web interface that requires only a web browser and a connection to the Internet, Global 2000 companies are now capable of seeking out new trading partners that previously were not electronically enabled due to the steep costs of implementing EDI systems.

Sizeable Return on Investment

As a result of using XEDI Translator, companies that perform electronic trade transactions with their non-EDI trading partners can achieve significant cost reductions. ``XEDI Translator unlocks data tied up in EDI systems, thus enabling the enterprise to leverage its business-critical information for partners, customers and the entire supply chain at Internet speed,'' said Kate Fessenden, Research Director, Enterprise XML, Aberdeen Group, Boston, MA. ``In fact, XEDI Translator processes an invoice in a streamlined and automated way that pushes the cost down by a significant factor - cost savings of up to 90% can be realized according to some estimates.''
