Great technical support with excellent integration capabilities and good scalability

What is our primary use case?

As integration with that, they have a different core banking system. They have different layers. They have a B2B also and they have a partner ecosystem. Clients are using the solution for the legacy applications, they are using it for microservices that are designed for the various different use cases. There's card management based on that, for example. Every customer has a different requirement and different use cases. Currently, I'm working with one customer in… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "The technical support on offer through the portal is very helpful and responsive."
  • "They do not have a solid partner ecosystem, and they do not have a clear roadmap for down the line; they're missing that clear roadmap."

What other advice do I have?

We don't use it for ourselves. I am part of the sales team. I used to sell this product to my customers. The customers use on-premises as well as cloud deployment models.

Good data formatting and transformation functions

What is our primary use case?

I am a consultant and B2B Integrator is one of the products that I implement for my clients. This tool helps with understanding the products by improving communications.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable features assist with understanding data formats and transforming data."
  • "The tool requires you to write a lot of code in Java and XSLT, which makes development tough."

What other advice do I have?

In summary, this is a good product but I would prefer one that requires less code. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

A complete and customizable suite for business processes, mapping, and connectivity

What is our primary use case?

We use the Windows version of this solution. It integrates with a proprietary, SQL-based ERP. It provides standard EDI using VAN, AS2, FTP, SFTP, HTTP. The full cycle from order to payment is covered. Also, it performs XML realtime transactions where customers can check stock, order status, and place realtime orders.

Pros and Cons

  • "Everything from the order to fulfillment to the payment process, except for physical packing and shipping, is fully automated for some customer orders."
  • "When working on an elaborate rule, I end up creating it in notepad and then pasting it into the Extended Rule window, which is not convenient."
