Integration Improvements

FRAMINGHAM (03/03/2000) - According to Forrester Research Inc. in Cambridge, Mass., users can expect to see additional integration features from digital exchanges in the next two years. They include the following:

-- Seamless integration to third-party providers of shipping, logistics, credit and other services.

-- Hands-off transactions governed by preset criteria. One example is that a company's enterprise system would automatically post to the exchange any inventory that has remained untouched in its warehouse for longer than 10 days.

On the other end, an exchange might pull a product from its site once the price goes below a point preset by the seller.

-- Customized sales, customer service and other performance reports based on return on investment parameters set by each company.
