Sports shoe producer K-Swiss has successfully integrated IPNet Solutions Inc's IPNet BizConnect with Inovis Inc's TrustedLink iSeries Solution in order to improve its supply chain and cut costs.

Georgia-based Invois said in a news release K-Swiss expects a "significant reduction in communications fees and other costs including chargebacks resulting from dial-up communication disconnects".

"One of the key criteria in selecting an EDI-INT solution was simple integration with our existing systems. Since K-Swiss already had Inovis: TrustedLink in place, it made sense to look at BizConnect as the products are already well-integrated through an Inovis/IPNet partnership," said Gaylon Uptgraft, IT director for K-Swiss.

"The combined solution is superior to any others we evaluated and we expect to achieve a positive ROI in less than a year."
