Elcom International, Inc. announced a partnership agreement with IMPAQ Business Solutions Ltd. IMPAQ’s newly released hosted HxDE Supplier Enablement System (“SEP”) provides electronic catalog management and XML transaction processing support for purchase orders and invoices. The HxDE suite of XML-based solutions enable the electronic transfer of business-critical documents between Elcom’s eProcurement and eMarketplace systems and suppliers who access IMPAQ’s supplier portal. The IMPAQ HxDE SEP automates the handling of purchase orders, PO acknowledgements, invoicing, remittances and transmission of supplier electronic catalogs. To simplify deployment, HxDE is remotely-hosted by Elcom. The HxDE SEP is specifically targeted at all suppliers who want to participate in eCommerce with their customers but who lack the IT infrastructure to do so cost effectively. www.elcom.com, www.impaq.co.uk
