Further acknowledgement that one of this year's key themes in the applications space will be about integrating everything that's already in place comes with the announcement that Easylink Services and STR Software have developed a joint tool that they say is designed to streamline information delivery. It's pitched directly at existing customers of Peoplesoft, SAP and Oracle.
The software provides users of STR's AventX UNIX 3.2 program information delivery system with integrated access to the EasyLink transaction delivery network. The transaction integration includes linkage to modules such as purchasing, shipping, inventory control, financials and CRM.
STR's AventX UNIX 3.2 is a native interface through which documents or reports of any type can be delivered to a wide range of destinations. It is intended to allow customers to reduce eliminate materials, time and labour costs in information delivery. Users in a UNIX-based environment will be able to send information directly from ERP applications like those from Oracle, SAP and PeopleSoft.
