  15. 15. How it works <ul><li>We provide an integration interface into a client's ERP system to extract order, planning, logistics, inventory, or billing data. This can then be shared between the client and their suppliers. This approach means that the client can continue to use their existing systems, with no training required. </li></ul><ul><li>Our connectivity technology securely routes client data and makes it accessible via a web browser to specified suppliers, with no need for integration. </li></ul><ul><li>For automation of transactions, we also provides capability to integrate into relevant supply chain partners’ systems: via EDI or direct ERP connections. </li></ul><ul><li>Our order management, inventory and demand visibility applications provide web-based tools to review information and receive exception alerts. </li></ul><ul><li>Our systems are fully RFID enabled and can provide full data layer visibility of inventory tracked using RFID technologies. </li></ul>
