SPS Commerce Experiences 580 Percent Growth of Its B2B Integration Services’ multi-party capabilities; 700 3PLs and Sourcing Companies join spscommerce.net in 2007

Wednesday, February 27th, 2008

SaaS Model and Expanded Capabilities Drive 98 Percent Increase in Revenue from SPS’ Integrated EDI Service and 78 Percent Increase in Revenue from its Chinese OperationsMinneapolis, Minn., Feb. 27, 2008 – SPS Commerce, the leading provider of SaaS EDI services, today announced that in fiscal year 2007 more than 700 customers that expanded their current SPS B2B integration services to include sourcing companies, expeditors, freight forwarders, factories in the Pacific Rim, and third party logistics providers (3PLs). This increase is attributed to the growing adoption of SaaS solutions and the market trend of outsourcing, as CPG manufacturers must efficiently communicate order and shipment information to trusted third parties who perform tasks on their behalf. In 2007, SPS experienced an increase of 580% in the sales of its outsourced EDI service’s multi-party capabilities which can connect all supply chain partners, including 3PLS, without the need to install or maintain EDI software at each location.In 2007, SPS Commerce’s business grew in other areas including:- 98% revenue growth for its integrated SaaS EDI service- 78% increase in revenue from PacRim operations- 6 regional offices opened in North America- 100% growth in Chinese sales and support staff, new office opened in southern China- 11,500 new trading partner relationships formed from EDI enablement programs with retailers- Expanded senior management team, including executives from Amazon.com and Oracle“SaaS is reawakening the B2B integration market by enabling suppliers to connect with the global outsourcing partners regardless of location and infrastructure, often removing days in the fulfillment cycle,” commented Archie Black, president and CEO of SPS Commerce. “In 2007, SPS Commerce delivered many new capabilities to its B2B integration services to connect manufacturers with 3PLs and other third party supply chain partners. Until now this communication was done via phone, fax or email, as using integration software solutions would be too cumbersome and expensive to support an implementation at each partner site. Using the SaaS model, manufacturers need only share a User ID and password to enable these partners to securely view filtered order information, print and affix accurate barcode labels, and create and send shipping documents directly from the factory to the retailer on the supplier’s behalf.”Unlike traditional software implementations of EDI, the SaaS or multi-tenant model for B2B integration enables thousands of companies to share the specialized expertise, infrastructure and existing maps of a service provider. Nothing is hosted onsite, so the solution can be accessed from any location with no onsite expertise or infrastructure is necessary. International factories or sourcing companies may have limited or no technical infrastructure and staff, making onsite EDI software implementations cost-prohibitive. With SaaS, this barrier is removed.About SPS CommerceSPS Commerce is the leader in Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) B2B integration, connecting every partner in the supply chain.

SPS COMMERCE, LEADING SAAS EDI SERVICE PROVIDER UNVEILS NEW WHITEPAPER TITLED TRADING PARTNER INTEGRATION CENTERS – THE SAAS MODEL FOR EDI

Monday, January 14th, 2008

Document Examines Why the Multi-Tenant B2B Integration Market is Growing at 25% Annually and How to Differentiate Among Integration VendorsMinneapolis, Minn., Jan. 14, 2008 – SPS Commerce, the leading provider of SaaS EDI services has written and published a whitepaper titled ‘Trading Partner Integration Centers – The SaaS Model for EDI.’ Written by industry expert Jim Frome, SPS’ Chief Strategy Officer, the whitepaper examines why multi-tenant EDI services, or Trading Partner Integration Centers, are addressing the growing proliferation of B2B transactions across the globe, growing at more than 25% CAGR according to top industry analysts.“With many B2B integration solutions simply reselling traditional software in disguise or hosted as a managed service, identifying a true multi-tenant solution can be daunting for CPG suppliers,” commented Jim Frome at SPS Commerce. “This whitepaper explores the benefits of the new B2Bi model, Trading Partner Integration Centers, provided by organizations including SPS Commerce, E2Open, Redtail, EZcom, and DICentral and how to recognize them. With B2B expected to grow by 200% or more in the next five years, organizations need a better way to communicate with their trading partners across the globe, such as sourcing agents, 3PLs, and freight forwarders. The traditional EDI software model cannot succeed in that environment; Trading Partner Integration Centers are the only answer.”The whitepaper offers CPG manufacturers a checklist and description of the key criteria for Trading Partner Integration Centers (TPIC), the SaaS EDI model, including the following TPIC criteria:1. Support All Transactions, Data Formats, and Workflow2. Provide a Comprehensive Outsourced Solution3. Use a Multi-Tenant Application Architecture4. Be Easy to Access and Integrate5. Offer Role-Based, Secure User Accounts6. Allow Migration without Interrupting Existing Systems7. Offer Related Trading Partner ProductsSPS Commerce’s white paper can be downloaded here.

SPS Commerce’s Adaptor for NetSuite, created via SuiteFlex, is an excellent example of this that can benefit other companies.

More importantly, these organizations can reap the benefits of SaaS offerings and focus on their core competencies, not ERP or EDI.”About SuiteFlex and NetSuite’s SuiteFlex Developer ProgramSuiteFlex is an application development platform that enables the creation of third-party vertical applications within NetSuite, as well as business process customization for any end-user company. SuiteFlex includes several industry technology advances and innovations including additions to SuiteScript SM – which allows for on-demand programming using only a web browser on a device with Internet access. As a part of SuiteScript, NetSuite introduced Suitelets SM and SuiteScript UI Objects, allowing customers and third-party developers to build new workflows and applications that can look and operate as if NetSuite’s own developers wrote them. In addition, SuiteFlex introduces a new concept for the Software as a Service market — “Service as Software,” SuiteBundler SM — to deliver new integrated vertical solutions by packaging their Suitelets and other extensions with NetSuite’s core ERP/CRM/Ecommerce application. SuiteBundler enables solution providers to embed their industry-best practices, knowledge and applications — traditionally delivered as one-off services — into the actual NetSuite application for verticals in a repeatable fashion.NetSuite’s SuiteFlex Developer Program was established to help solution providers achieve success in vertical markets by bringing them the following:• Template development account with extensive SuiteFlex customization, development and integration capabilities and access to the entire NetSuite suite of applications. Developers can create and test their customizations, applications and integrations in this account and use it as a template for a repeatable solution they can deploy to multiple customers.• Online product and technical documentation and online product training.• Phone and email technical support.• Participation in the SuiteFlex developer forum.• Eligibility to join NetSuite’s Referral Program.• Ability to apply for inclusion in the SuiteFlex Solutions directory.About SPS CommerceSPS Commerce provides a communication solution to be used by each partner in a company’s supply chain.
