NQL Announces NQL ContentAnywhere for Microsoft Office

NQL Inc. announced the release of its NQL ContentAnywhere Office Edition, designed to expand Microsoft Office. The new version of NQL’s content management system is priced at $15,000 and is scaled to bring content management to companies of all sizes seeking to increase productivity for up to 100 users per license. The NQL ContentAnywhere system is designed to offer an alternative to the cut-and-paste methods previously required to make content usable. NQL ContentAnywhere Office Edition enables access to content through the Microsoft Office suite by linking it to corporate networks and the Internet. Without leaving Microsoft Office, users can access information from databases, applications, legacy systems, file servers, messages, and web sites. The new version leverages the core content collection and delivery capabilities of the previously announced NQL ContentAnywhere Enterprise system.

SupplyAccess Launches Catalog Content & Supplier Integration Services

SupplyAccess, Inc. announced the availability of SupplyAccess Content Services, an outsourced solution that manages catalog content and automates the processes surrounding transaction integration across different eCommerce platforms. SupplyAccess’ single marketplace model reduces the time required to obtain, validate and aggregate catalog data from suppliers for use in eProcurement applications or private marketplaces. This model differentiates SupplyAccess’ services from tools that build “one-off” custom catalogs for each buyer-supplier relationship. SupplyAccess achieves economies-of-scale without extensive manual intervention by producing reusable content and spreading the burden of catalog management across a larger population. Suppliers benefit from SupplyAccess Content Services because they can unify their content creation, management, and syndication activities through a single solution. Since SupplyAccess supports different catalog schemas and integration formats, suppliers can maintain and expand relationships regardless of their customer’s technology platform. Additionally, smaller suppliers can take advantage of self-service, Web-based tools to create custom pricing and catalog access for each customer without the need to upload or manage separate catalogs. www.supplyaccess.com
