Seeburger Inc. has made available RollOut Portal, an online tool which allows self-serve trading partner enablement within electronic data interchange (EDI) and business-to-business linkups. The software enables the on-boarding and recertification of customers and suppliers to systems operated by automotive manufacturers, consumer products sellers, retailers and other organizations. Usable with any B2B gateway, the portal virtually eliminates the cost and effort needed to connect new trading partners to the central hub, migrate existing partners to a new system, change partner configurations and launch new rollout campaigns, Seeburger claimed. Customers and suppliers can self-test both the data structure of a given EDI or B2B message and the communications protocol being used to transmit the message, including AS2 and OFTP, by uploading the test message and pressing "Start Test." The action allows partners to control the testing schedule and avoid IT bottlenecks on the sponsoring company's side. Test results are delivered immediately, along with reports, which pinpoint the cause of any testing failures. The Seeburger RollOut Portal is available as a software license for in-house installation, under the software-as-a-service model, or as a service deployed and managed by Seeburger.
