FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TRUBIQUITY LAUNCHES SOFTWARE ARCHITECTURE, DATA EXCHANGE PRODUCT
ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich. – Trubiquity (formerly Autoweb), a leading provider of software-based business process automation and data management solutions for the automotive, aerospace and consumer goods industries, has launched its new software-as-a-service (SaaS) architecture.
Trubiquity’s new software architecture, named TRUcore, greatly improves communications among global business teams, from an OEM (original equipment manufacturer) level down through a company’s global supply chain. The new architecture also streamlines customers’ internal business processes and offers better coordination, data management and process execution between a company’s business units and its global supply chain partners.
Based on Microsoft’s popular .NET software development platform, TRUcore is a service-oriented architecture (SOA) designed to unify customers’ business processes by structuring large software applications as a collection of smaller services. These services can be used by people both inside and outside a company and combined to give customers a greater degree of process performance, flexibility and security.
“Our new architecture allows manufacturers and suppliers to automate processes and collaborate on projects despite differences in their communications protocols, time zones and languages, or the size and format of the data files that need to be exchanged,” said Nino DiCosmo, president and CEO of Trubiquity.
As a complement to Trubiquity’s suite of hosted process automation solutions, the TRUcore architecture also allows customers to securely access and share information that has been stored within internal systems. These integration points provide customers an opportunity to leverage existing IT investments while ensuring that critical business data is up-to-date, secure, and available to all necessary stakeholders.
Based on a subscription-usage model, Trubiquity’s SaaS-based software reduces or eliminates redundant administration, hardware and software costs related to the maintenance of a customer’s internal data management systems and business processes. Trubiquity software can be scaled up or down, meaning that customers can implement multiple software solutions while remaining flexible to process changes.
“Our new SaaS-based software architecture supports our mission of automating critical business processes and connecting manufacturers and suppliers across the globe. TRUcore, combined with our global communications infrastructure and flexible product packaging, allows customers to integrate existing IT systems and extend the value of process automation throughout the global value chain,” stated Muhammad Khan, Trubiquity’s chief technical officer.
In addition to launching TRUcore, Trubiquity’s popular technical data exchange solution, formerly IPExchange, will be renamed to TRUexchange. The new TRUexchange product is the first to be developed and released on the TRUcore architecture. Trubiquity’s data exchange solutions are used by OEMs and suppliers across the globe to exchange large, unstructured data files (CAD/PLM).
As part of its SaaS-based software distribution approach, Trubiquity also offers comprehensive customer support options. “Our customers are supported by a large, globally-distributed team offering nearly around-the-clock availability. Support staff in all major geographic regions are always available to address customer concerns and questions,” said Nina DiMeglio-Zaleski, Trubiquity’s senior vice president of Customer Experience.
Based in Rochester Hills, with European headquarters in Germany and the U.K., Trubiquity is a leading provider of business process automation and global data exchange software for manufacturers and suppliers. The company provides a single, software-as-a-service-based business process network connecting enterprises across all global communication protocols and standards.
