The IndustryLink for RosettaNet solution allows companies to adopt RosettaNet by pre-configuring and automating many of the steps involved with a RosettaNet implementation. The main features of the solution include:
- A completely self-contained application -– no additional software to purchase.
- Multiple wizards to guide a user through deployment.

Inovis’ business process management engine, which the company inherited from its Extricity heritage, powers the process orchestration component of IndustryLink for RosettaNet. This engine can be leveraged by organizations to build additional workflows and drive supply chain efficiencies through the solution’s support for flexible business processes.
IndustryLink for RosettaNet supports multiple Partner Interface Processes (PIPs), which outline how business processes must be accommodated and completed as defined by standards in the industry. Business processes supported include critical supply chain functions like order management, inventory management, product information and product lifecycle management. Each validated and certified PIP is available as a package or an add-on module to the solution.
