Joint initiative underway with pilot program for electronics component distributor Wintech Microelectronics

Atlanta  July 11, 2005  Inovis, a provider of B2B solutions and services, and Fairchild Semiconductor are undertaking a joint initiative to provide RosettaNet services to select Fairchild trading partners worldwide.

Using Inovis' hosted RosettaNet services, Fairchild has deployed a pilot program with trading partner Wintech Microelectronics, an electronics component distributor in Asia. As a result of the RosettaNet initiative, Wintech will be looking to achieve streamlined trading community connectivity, accelerated data transmission and enhanced ability to react quickly to market opportunities.

RosettaNet is a non-profit consortium of more than 500 organizations working to create, implement and promote open e-business standards and services. Fairchild currently is deploying RosettaNet solutions for design win registration, quoting and order management.

Partnering on RosettaNet Objectives

A long-time Inovis customer, Fairchild partnered with the B2B connectivity specialist in order to achieve RosettaNet objectives that include improved trading partner communication and customer satisfaction; accelerated speed of doing business due to real-time, system-to-system business processes instead of extranet-portals; and increased revenue and market share.

RosettaNet services are part of Inovis' Managed Services offering, through which Fairchild is able to manage the flow of e-commerce information across its trading community. Also through Managed Services, Fairchild leverages TrustedLink Enterprise, Inovis' electronic data interchange (EDI) translation software, for "any-to-any" translation with its trading partners.

"Fairchild's global strategy encompasses using RosettaNet solutions to create a streamlined business experience for our trading partners while generating demand for our ... power products," said Win Rawls, Fairchild's vice president for e-commerce, sales and marketing IT. "As evidenced by our work with Wintech, partnering with a strong, motivated RosettaNet service provider like Inovis is a key element to the successful execution of our strategy and the achievement of our goals."

"Our work with Fairchild is a testament to Inovis' commitment to offering a comprehensive portfolio of business-to-business solutions that enable compliance with industry standards and optimize trading community connectivity," said Sean Feeney, president and CEO of Inovis.
