Press release from the issuing company
Roanoke, VA and Minneapolis, MN – June 21, 2001 – Source4 and Four51 announced today that Source4 is adopting Four51 as their enterprise eCommerce solution. Source4 (formerly Dominion Solutions, PSI Group, Available Business Group, Emerald Solutions in Print, and American Printing Systems) will extend Four51’s functionality to all of their subsidiaries, their customer base and to their suppliers. The two companies will initiate joint sales, marketing, implementation, and training activities immediately to engage Source4’s customers and suppliers with the program.
“Four51 has been a great partner for us,” said Roger Jefferson, Source4’s chairman. “For the customers we’ve already implemented, we’ve streamlined our operations, improved our customer relationships, and lowered our costs. We’re now looking for the opportunity to extend those benefits even further to include our broader customer and supplier base.”
Source4 is extending Four51 functionality to their customers and suppliers now that Four51’s WildFireSM XML transport module is available. Source4 intends to automate inbound and outbound order processing between their customers and suppliers with Four51, and in time passing transaction data into their back-office systems to create operations and logistical efficiencies.
“These capabilities represent a huge opportunity for us to create substantial efficiencies for ourselves and our trading partners,” said Chuck Calman, president of Source4’s Northeast offices. “Automating and standardizing order processing between our customers and suppliers is a major benefit for everyone and will create a huge strategic advantage.”
“Source4 is one of our leading customers,” said Barry Brown, Four51’s senior vice president of operations. “They’ve been very aggressive in promoting their eCommerce capabilities to their customers, and the results they’ve seen have been great. We’re thrilled that they want to extend these tools to benefit even more of their customers and suppliers.”
Source4 is actively presenting Four51 to their customers and suppliers, and Four51 is coordinating with Source4 for implementation and training.
