What is a B2B gateway?

A B2B gateway centralizes integration and information exchange between back-end systems and trading partners. From invoices and POs to supply chain documents such as ASNs, to engineering CAD drawings, B2B gateways deliver a greater level of control and security over the exchange of proprietary assets. The best B2B gateways bring integration, data translation and MFT together to meet all B2B requirements in a single platform.
