AdroitLogic Private Ltd. announced today the launch of electronic invoicing support on its AS2Gateway, a Cloud based Business-to-Business (B2B) trading gateway based on the free and open source Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) UltraESB. The AS2Gateway provides SMEs an easy to use web based interface with connectivity, translation and electronic invoicing options, to exchange EDI, XML and other types of business documents with their trading partners over the widely used B2B trading protocol AS2. The electronic invoicing capability announced today allows the creation and transmission of EDIFACT based INVOIC documents via the simple web based interface of the platform, currently in beta.
The invoicing support also allows the creation of invoice templates, to simplify recurrent invoicing, and also supports the definition of custom taxes applicable in different countries. Invoices can be labeled for easier categorization and search, and created with discounts, and charges based on percentages and amounts. In the weeks ahead, AdroitLogic plans to extend the invoicing capabilities to include support for X12 based invoices, and also introduce support to process and generate other types of EDI documents, including the ability to generate invoices based on received purchase orders.
The UltraESB is the free and open source ESB that supports the AS2 protocol and EDI document manipulation underneath the AS2Gateway, and is currently being used by multiple organizations for automated B2B integration with trading partners. The Cloud based offering includes a free tier adequate for many smaller suppliers, and scales to support large organizations, saving investments in hardware, software, maintenance and Value Added Network (VAN) usage.
AS2 (Applicability Statement 2) is the leading industry standard protocol for the secure exchange of business documents between trading partners over the Internet. Electronic Document Interchange (EDI) messages such as those based on the ANSI X12 (US) and UN/EDIFACT (Europe, Asia) formats are exchanged electronically between trading partners in efforts to automate B2B trading using the Internet as an interconnection medium over generally expensive and older Value Added Network (VAN) technologies.
AdroitLogic Private Ltd. founded in January 2010, is a privately held innovative technology company based in Singapore, that believes in, and proves, that better design and clever code yields much better software. AdroitLogic is driven by an exceptional team of integration experts with many years of ESB development and support experience, and backed by the dedication and commitment of its founders, who are personally involved with the design, development and support of its products
