Out of the Box vs With Framework

B2B Integrator Out of the Box

  • A comprehensive Any to Any Integration Suite streamlining business processes across your enterprise
  • Customers can be intimidated by the set up process, software is not "ready to use" out of the box
  • Comes with tools to build processes but requires software knowledge and experience to efficiently implement
  • Lacks end to end historical visibility to Partner data
  • Does not offer a standard approach to partner configuration to support different file types (EDI, NONEDI) and communication protocols (SFTP, AS2)

With the Implementation and Framework Solution

  • The 6-8 week implementation provides an established architecture to support EDI, EAI, and MFT processing needs so that customers can focus on Partner Management and Map development
  • Includes hundreds of fully tested framework processes ready for use
  • Visibility Portal offers access to source and destination data, allowing search at transport, partner, EDI, and data levels
  • A centralized error repository where teams can manage exceptions in a distributed environment

What People Say

“The Framework Solution reduced our demand on EDI resources.”

“The Framework Solution reduced our demand on EDI resources.”

My company did a major upgrade of EDI, going from a heavily modified GIS 2.x to SI 5.2. One of our goals in doing that was to drastically improve reporting. REMEDI’s Framework Solution has given us some excellent reporting in addition to the operational improvements we were looking for. It’s easy enough to use that many of our less-than-expert users in our plants can navigate it quite effectively. This, in turn, reduced the demand on our EDI resources which was quite welcome. Definitely met our objectives. ~ Jim - TBA

“It feels like we went from a Pinto to a Lamborghini.”

“It feels like we went from a Pinto to a Lamborghini.”

We replaced our old Inovis BizManager/BizLink with B2B Integrator/GIS/S in conjunction with REMEDI’s Framework Solution and were able to go live within 90 days with well over 1000 maps and hundreds of trading partners. Setting up new TP’s and communications could not be any easier, and we could not be happier. It feels like we went from a Pinto to a Lamborghini. REMEDI has only top-notch consultants with impeccable credentials, and we were very impressed with their skill. We would happily recommend REMEDI and their framework to everyone and anyone. ~ Charlotte - BlueStar

“Great visibility as part of an integration tool.”

“Great visibility as part of an integration tool.”

I have had good experience with REMEDI Framework Solution for B2B Integrator. It offers great advantages to different areas of business. Non-IT users can be provided with view-only access, while an IT support team can use the functionality to correct and reprocess any failures. The setup of profiles to establish processing through the framework is straightforward, and options to load a high volume of messages at once are available. It provides great visibility as part of an integration tool. ~ Jennifer - Eaton Corporation

“Went live in 90 days with over 1200 maps and 800 TP’s.”

“Went live in 90 days with over 1200 maps and 800 TP’s.”

We installed B2B Integrator/GIS/SI for use with our entire e-commerce suite. REMEDI brought their own framework to the project, and we were able to go live in 90 days with over 1200 maps and 800 TP’s. I could not have been happier with the project!! I would highly recommend REMEDI and their Framework Solution. ~ Alan - First Phoenix
