I think they all know that we can do old-fashioned vanilla EDI but many do not know that we can also do pistachio and rum raisin, too! And by "pistachio" I am talking about some of the remarkable services available to our clients they may not be taking advantage of, like direct-connections to trading partners or their ERP via APIs, EDI dashboards, inventory feeds and the list goes on. In other words, we don't just do EDI, we meet our clients' B2B integration needs with unique and industry leading solutions.

You have a website, perhaps a line card, business cards, other collateral for your business, yes? And you have or soon will have the capability to exchange business documents with customers, suppliers or other trading partners via EDI or other ways that significantly reduce the time spent by your most valuable asset, your people, as they handle daily business transactions. This new capability also improves accuracy, decreases cycle times and improves relationships with those same trading partners. You may have made a significant investment in dollars and experience to get to this point. You may have had to do it at the behest of a single significant trading partner. Well, that was the hard part and now you have an important new tool! One of the easiest ways to increase your return on that investment and increase your business’s profit is to add more trading partners or business documents.
We recently had the opportunity to meet up in Santa Barbara with some of our fellow Liaison resellers. What a fantastic and valuable meeting! Read on for some of the key take aways for the coming year.

As a hub organization, can you imagine being able to see what's happening with your trading partner community at a glance? Liaison Technologies, always on the cutting edge of integration and supply chain solutions, has created a tool for hubs to manage their community from one convenient place. Community Manager uses a Software as a Service (SaaS) approach to allow hubs to monitor and manage their customer/supplier enablement programs.

After two years of blogging, we feel that we have earned the right (unlike some top 40 artists out there) to put together a Greatest Hits of our most popular blogs. This list of ten blogs is a countdown to the most viewed blog article on our site. The list might surprise you...it certainly surprised us!
