Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"It's highly stable, and the redundancy is amazing. B2B Integrator also has a high availability option to work in a cluster environment. You rarely have issues operating it because of the HA.""The technical support on offer through the portal is very helpful and responsive.""I find the codeless communications, SFTP or FTP, valuable.""B2B Integrator is multi-platform, so it can be integrated with Windows, Unix, or whatever, and it can work with almost all programming languages. It can also transfer a lot of data in a short time. For instance, a system I recently implemented exchanges about 20 million files a day.""The solution offers good integration capabilities.""The most valuable features assist with understanding data formats and transforming data."

Cons
"The tool requires you to write a lot of code in Java and XSLT, which makes development tough.""The reporting features could be better. right now, they are lacking a bit.""The user interface is outdated. B2B Integrator was developed in the United States in the nineties, and the graphical user interface hasn't improved since. It's tough because you have to program the software in XML. Nowadays, other methods are easier to work with.""The mapping, visibility, deployment, and the dashboard could be improved and updated. The communication logs are very poor. They are not easily understood, and we need to navigate to many places for many reasons. You can't just pull the information; it's very tough.""Patching or upgrading the product is a bit of a nightmare. It would be nice if they removed the installation manager port. We find it complicates upgrading and patching a great deal.""They do not have a solid partner ecosystem, and they do not have a clear roadmap for down the line; they're missing that clear roadmap."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "We pay an annual fee based on the number of VPUs. It's fairly reasonable. We're in the middle of analyzing other products, and they're all pretty much in the same range."
