Services for Achieving the Full Benefits of IBM Sterling B2B Integrator
The IBM Sterling B2B Integrator solution (formerly Sterling Integrator and Gentran Integration Suite) is highly configurable and offers numerous options for protocols, communications, business processes, and more.
With that in mind, a B2B integration staff that is already stretched too thin may find the solution implementation a bit overwhelming—especially when it involves tight deadlines. Obtaining expert and objective guidance from an experienced partner before, during and after implementation is highly recommended in order to achieve the full benefits of the B2B Integrator solution.
A Long History of EDI and B2B Integration Consulting Success
An IBM Gold Business Partner with extensive experience with IBM Sterling solutions, Lightwell (formerly Oxford Consulting Group) provides expert consulting resources to design, implement, support, and optimize the IBM Sterling B2B Integrator solution.
Our B2B integration consultants have been involved in all aspects of the B2B Integrator solution–from development and design, to implementation and upgrades, to support and SaaS–and offer years of knowledge and best practices gained from working with many companies and industries.
Whether you need to augment your existing staff during the solution implementation or outsource the B2B Integrator solution, we can design a cost-effective solution that fits your needs precisely.
