OAO & JetForm in Strategic Relationship

OAO Corporation and JetForm Corporation announced a strategic business relationship to integrate OAO’s electronic commerce (EC)/Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) technology and JetForm’s XML-based e-process framework. This effort enables companies to provide completely automated, open standards based EDI-to-XML interoperability for e-business processes such as request for proposals, electronic purchase orders, electronic invoicing and support. The strategic teaming and development effort will create a transparent EDI bridge between OAO’s EC/EDI technology, specifically Easy Mix based on the Implementation Definition (IMPDEF) message, and JetForm’s e-process framework and XML Forms Architecture (XFA). This will provide an interface between EDI codified standards and XML structures offering an enhanced user interface, elimination of redundant inputs and errors and a faster processing time.
