Orion, formed in 1998, is a focused company specialized in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) and electronic commerce (EC). The PathFinder product range is a complete data exchange system that can be used for traditional EDI purposes, more complex managed file transfer exchanges between partners, internally as a middleware tool for interfacing between applications or just as a document creation tool. PathFinder is supported by consultancy services and training courses to allow users to get the fullest value from their product. It won’t transform your life - but it will give you complete control over your data exchange traffic and handle your future requirements.
