Geoprise Technologies today announced the general availability of GM-X Version 5, its robust supply chain Trading Execution System for manufacturers, distributors and retailers. In a related development, Geoprise Technologies also announced the formation of its subsidiary
"A key issue confronting manufacturers, distributors and retailers is the urgent and growing need to integrate marketing and sales, logistics and delivery, after-sales service and supply chain management processes within an overall e-business strategy; however, accounting and enterprise resources planning (ERP) systems must run behind internal firewalls because they contain highly sensitive data," said
GM-X Version 5 overcomes this limitation because the application can run in a demilitarized zone (DMZ) or classified military zone (CMZ), together with an organization's other front-end Web sites, and connects securely to external Web sites and services as well as an organization's internal systems using standard Web services and protocols. The GM-X database, meanwhile, resides securely within the internal firewall. In this respect GM-X Version 5 is analogous to full-fledged customer-facing Web applications, like online banking, that end users can see and which connect to the core accounting systems running securely behind an internal firewall by way of "middleware," the plumbing that end users cannot see. "You could think of GM-X as 'outerware' and not 'middleware' for supply chain trading execution situations," Nones said.
Originally developed by
GM-X Version 5 consists of 14 subsystems: a foundation subsystem providing secure sign-on and role-based access controls; Product, Content management and Inventory Subsystems for product data management and inventory tracking; the Party Subsystem for managing collaborative trading relationships; Request, Order, Shipment and Invoice Subsystems for end-to-end supply chain trading execution including requisitions, requests for proposals and quotes (RFPs and RFQs), quotations, purchase and sales orders, shipment tracking, invoicing and delivery; Work Effort, Project and Alert Subsystems for work execution, timesheets, expense reporting and document management; a configurable Workflow Subsystem that instantly routes work to the right users; and an Audit Subsystem that automatically tracks all database changes and document views. The application meets the needs of individual companies as well as multi-company enterprises, and delivers advanced multi-language and multi-currency capabilities that far surpass those of comparable software offerings.
