The new 7.01 release offers Web-based server management that, according to Perwill, gives administrators the ability to manage e-commerce servers "any time, anywhere".
The software is designed to exchange information between companies using virtually any document format. Perwill claimed customers, business partners and suppliers can all get involved in beneficial business processes such as just-in-time manufacturing, quick response retailing and total quality management.
Commenting on the product's new Web functionality, Perwill managing director Bill Pugsley said: "It's going to provide users with improved feedback on job monitoring, as well as significant enhancements to the way trading relationships and communications operate."
The new version also extends support for XML with a new RosettaNet "plug-in" module that allows applications based on eBiz-Manager to operate within RosettaNet, the manufacturing exchange.
