  • With FIS / xee, a flexible and secure exchange is possible in any kind of requested format (e.g. the industry standards VDA, ODETTE, ANSI X.12, EDIFACT, XML etc.)
  • The entire administration and monitoring takes place in the “SAP-look-and-feel” user interface (dedicated SAP transactions) to enable very short implementation times
  • Media changes are avoided and business processes run more securely
  • In addition, the automation involved in the electronic exchange of documents and messages accelerates the processes and reduces costs
  • To meet the requirements of the industry standards, format conversions or mappings can easily be created using FIS/xee workbench
