Business Document & Data Exchange

Under increasing pressure to reduce costs by trading electronically with all supply chain partners, businesses are being challenged to leverage existing IT systems without disruption, making core business processes available to customers and suppliers anytime, anywhere.

Electronic Business Document & Data Exchange

The Quantum VS XML Highway module provides seamless integration, enabling businesses of all sizes to electronically exchange & archive business documents and/or data - cost effectively. This module may also be used to exchange information with other internal information systems within your organisation, across any platform, enabling low-cost systems integration.

Quantum VS XML Highway can be used to exchange electronic documents with your suppliers and customers, regardless of I.T. platform or data format. Whether using industry-standards, such as an established EDI format, structured XML data, or even CSV text files, this module facilitates data transformation and validation procedures for truly seamless integration, whilst ensuring data integrity.

Multiple transport mechanisms are supported, from simple e-mail to VPN and highly encrypted, secure networks, via which data can be either automatically delivered or collected. So whatever systems and networks you need to communicate with, Quantum VS XML Highway will support your requirements.

Quantum VS has enabled us to achieve our long-held ambition to receive electronic supplier invoices straight into our Purchase Ledger without manual intervention. We are only 3 months into this project but we are already receiving over half of our supplier invoices in this way.
Quantum VS has enabled us to streamline our business processes and realise significant efficiency savings and we are now driving hard to get the rest of our suppliers to trade with us electronically.
