SoftSmiths adds seamless back-office integration via e-Link XML framework

Houston, TX. – November 20, 2001 – Today, SoftSmiths announced the availability of e-Link, the highly anticipated XML Application Programming Interface (API) part of its e-Merchant product suite. SoftSmiths delivers critical e-Business solutions and services that enable energy industry participants to enhance profitability and reliability in the competitive marketplace.

e-Link provides an XML framework that enables developers to seamlessly integrate back-office systems by deploying business adapters for risk management, trading, scheduling, generation, load, meter, and NERC E-Tag information. Critical information is transmitted in real time, optimizing decision-making processes enterprise-wide. This enables companies to manage risk and optimize usage of assets in a highly dynamic competitive environment.

e-Merchant is a toolbox for Purchasing/Selling Entities whose market strategy may focus on high-volume hub trading, buying and selling of physical assets or a combination of both. SoftSmiths’ e-Merchant suite offers a flexible, scalable business technology solution – seamlessly integrating Risk Management, Trading, Portfolio Assessment, Resource Management, Scheduling, Accounting and Reporting.

"With the addition of this industry standard API, we not only provide our customers a unifying link that transforms isolated applications into a manageable enterprise-wide solution, but also a phased transition from legacy systems to fully integrated next generation transaction systems," said Hugo Stappers, Director of Sales/Marketing at SoftSmiths.
