SEEBURGER Unites MFT and Integration Suites
September 20, 2011 Alex Woodie
The German software company SEEBURGER AG last week unveiled a new release of its managed file transfer (MFT) solution. The company says it’s made SEE MFT an integrated component of its Business Integration Suite, thereby giving customers a single product for sharing supply chain data, such as EDI and AS2 files, alongside file types not used to transmit supply chain data, such as PDF or PowerPoint.
SEEBURGER has a long history in the EDI field, having launched its first EDI offering for the automotive industry in 1986. Over the years, the company developed a close relationship with German ERP powerhouse SAP, and has served the needs of more than 7,800 customers in a variety of industries, including Mercedes Benz, Audi, Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama, Pilgrim’s Pride, and Wyeth.
SEEBURGER’s file transfer solutions supports all major file transfer protocols and platforms, including IBM i. Customers can access SEE MFT via a Web browser or Outlook e-mail, while integrated business process management (BPM) capabilities drive automation into system-to-system transfers.
The big benefit of uniting SEE MFT with the SEEBURGER Business Integration Server (BIS), the vendor says, is the capability to control the secure flow of files for all types of business uses (including EDI and non supply chain data), and to do so from a single GUI console. Whether it’s a CAD file, a large PowerPoint, or smaller files containing regulated data, such as medical or credit card data, the company’s BIS offering can handle it.
