Adaptris delivers third generation eTrading hub with Adaptris ECX for the construction sector

Adaptris, the integration expert, todayannounced the launch of Adaptris ECX, an independent Electronic Data Management hub set to transform the international construction and building sectors. Filling the gap that traditional EDI systems have left behind, this third generation eTrading hub delivers immediate ROI and leverages the investment in a firm’s existing back office systems by making them ‘open’ to the supply chain. Demonstrating its support for Adaptris ECX and its commitment to the construction sector, Adaptris has formed a new division
and appointed Matthew Jones – a former director of COINS – as managing
director.

Commenting on his new role and the introduction of Adaptris ECX, Matthew
Jones said: "This is an extremely exciting time to join Adaptris. Until
now, attempts to harness electronic data integration for the entire
construction sector have been very difficult to realise, with the majority
of buyers and supply chain partners still unable to make the move to
integrated e-commerce. However, with the launch of Adaptris ECX, Adaptris
is now perfectly placed with the right leadership team, unrivalled systems
agnostic technology and the ambition and drive to enable all supply chain
partners to swiftly and easily roll out this game changing solution set. It
is now possible for trading partners to be up and running within 24 hours
of the first documents being received." He continued: "We are committed to
keeping things simple for all supply chain participants and in Adaptris
ECX, we have a rapid roll out solution that’s relevant, carefully
considered and tailored to the precise needs of its target market. I am
confident that Adaptris ECX will prove to be a technology turning point for
international construction and building sectors, helping them to drive and
realise significant efficiencies."

Adaptris ECX is independent of any construction sector solutions provider
and has been designed to be flexible and agile, with rapid roll-out
capabilities, making it applicable for the smallest of companies to the
largest. Open to all, the ‘Integration Anywhere’ platform is not limited to
any one back office system and its unique focus on creating a set of open
adaptors mean that it can be integrated into all major back office systems.
Adaptris ECX facilitates all aspects of the purchase and pay cycle, to
deliver the benefits of joined up procurement and electronic invoice
presentment and payment (EIPP). The increased accuracy of electronic data
drives swifter processing of business documents, cutting costs and
improving both process efficiency and business margins. By allowing all
supply chain partners to participate, irrespective of size and systems
capability, the complete automation of inefficient paper-based tasks is
achievable, thereby releasing employees and businesses to focus on higher
value, business-critical tasks.

Powered by Adaptris integration technology, the Adaptris ECX eCommerce hub
builds on the company’s experience in many different sectors and utilises
the latest technology to significantly simplify the process for buying
organisations as they drive their supply chain onboard. Its simplicity,
ease of use and straightforward onboarding process are designed to quickly
and efficiently set up all participants, who will also enjoy access to a
wealth of support and training literature. With a wide variety of cost
entry levels and a scalable managed services option, all organisations are
able to benefit from the value add qualities of e-invoicing and
e-procurement.

With increasing focus on environmental considerations, Adaptris ECX also
enables the construction industry to focus on its corporate social
responsibilities and sustainability goals, due to the move away from
physical paper-based processes to electronic alternatives.

Valued at over £125 billion per year, the UK construction industry accounts
for a massive seven per cent of the UK’s GDP. However, the disparity in
terms of size and technical capability between the 300,000 buyers and
suppliers in the industry is immense. Adaptris ECX aims to bridge this
gulf, enabling all players access to a full purchase and pay platform. The
new all-inclusive service gives access not only to contractors and house
builders, but continues right through the complex and interconnected
spiders web of the construction supply chain, connecting all buying
organisations and suppliers, right down to the small independent one man
band.

Nick Evans, CEO of Adaptris commented: "At Adaptris, we believe in
‘Integration Anywhere’; it embodies everything we do, from simple
application adapters running on premise, right through to SaaS adapters
running in the cloud mining data warehouses. We feel that through the
all-inclusive nature of Adaptris ECX, we are indeed delivering Integration
Everywhere to everyone in construction." He continued: "Our customers
understand that having the right information at the right time is the
difference between winning and losing out to competitors; and in the
current climate, no link in the construction supply chain can afford to be
left behind."
