Webswell enters European market with ebXML service

Vladimir Alexovic writes "Webswell Inc. expands into European market, opening its first European office, located in Prague, Czech Republic.

The primary purpose of new office is to help European small and medium sized companies (SME) to build B2B and integration solutions utilizing ebXML standards, while minimizing the cost by using completely free, open-source software products. The new office will also serve as a software development center for both American and European sites.

Why orientation towards SME?
Large enterprises which have Integrated their systems and which electronically trade with partners are efficient and thus have improved financial performance. Small and medium sized enterprises want the same benefits, however, existing solutions are expansive and can negate the potential financial gains. Webswell sees this and by taking advantage of the open source movement and embracing the architecture of web services we can offer to these organizations a low cost solution that let’s them integrate their systems and trade electronically without spending a lot of money.
