"Babelway - To try it is to adopt it."

What do you like best?

We work with Babelway since many years mainly on EDI projects with AS400 backend. We have always been very satisfied with the service and with the managing of our projects with Babelway. Customer-oriented, solution-based, proactive, speed and efficiency are the key words of our collaboration. Whatever the challenge encountered a solution has always been found with Babelway. ALso the interface of the web platform tool is simple, complete, user-friendly and very effective. To try it is to adopt it.

What do you dislike?

Honestly it's hard to find something I dislike about working with Babelway.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are a logistics company of food service. We have many suppliers but also many customers. It was important to set up a system electronic of ordering, invoicing, despatch advice with our trading partners as well as the implementation of the dematerialization with the archiving of the invoices.

"Does everything we need it to and more"

What do you like best?

Every requirement we had, there was a solution. The software is a feature rich B2B messaging platform that allowed us to accelerate our development and get live much quicker. I like how it relies on open technologies such as xpath for parsing xml and java simple date format for parsing/converting dates. Although its ideal when you have messages/events coming in and then need to send something out, it has a concept of lookup tables where you can store transient data as well.

What do you dislike?

You have to know the open technologies upon which is relies. I.e. it will be much easier to use if you already know xPath. I imagine they may build more GUI around things like xPath to make it even more configurable in the future.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You should greatly consider buy vs. build when building an ESB. And if you buy, use Babelway.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are implementing a procure to pay platform. The benefits are we are able to automated the passing transaction related documents back and forth to the parties involved in the transaction including Buyers, Suppliers, Funders and platform partners

What Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Babelway - a practical businsess integration application"

What do you like best?

Our businesscase is that we have a lot of customers that are in the manufacturing industry. For those companies, true business and process integration with their customers and supplies is very new. With Babelway, we are very flexible in helping our customers meeting the demands of their customers who typically use different formats and have different security demands.

What do you dislike?

There was a learning curve for us. Babelway is not just an easy "do it yourself" application.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We enable our customers to choose 1 or just a few formats they have to support. We take care of all the other formats that are used by our customer's suppliers and customers. This keeps things simple and manageable for our customers while making it easy to meet their customers demands.

"Great product. Simplifies B2B communications at very affordable prices"

What do you like best?

Simplicity - very easy to learn and implement. The drag and drop mapping is very helpful with a lot of easy to use functions built in.

What do you dislike?

Monitoring could be improved to provide a quick snapshot of messaging status.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a trial. Easy to setup a trial and get going. Recommend getting some basic training before implementing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

B2B - EDI messaging with large volume partners. Babelway has helped cut down the time to develop new EDI messages. Changes to existing messages are simple and fast. We have reduced cost of application and increased speed of deployments.

"Connecting the dots"

What do you like best?

Easy to work with as a company. Great support when you need assistance and powerful software to connect different systems if I may believe my technical consultants.

What do you dislike?

Traditionally Babelway focusses on connecting different business partners. We use the system for connecting our Cloud environment to the on premise ERP of the customers. So this was new to them in terms of pricing and structure. But to turn a negative into a positive; they have been very cooperative to work with us to solve this issue.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Only positive emotions working with these guys...

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We now have built just one JSON connector from our Cloud platform and can link to any XML, JSON, CSV, Fixed Width importing system and vice versa. So it safes us lots of time and money in developing interfaces to the ERP system of our customer.

"EDI 'Eureka' Moment!"

What do you like best?

The visual translation tool is first class, makes the mapping process far easier to complete.

What do you dislike?

What I don't like is the fact you cannot deploy a channel if another channel is incomplete, or in error.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In the past I have used over priced B2B solutions and then been reliant on managed service providers, that just didn't deliver. When I found Babelway it really was a 'eureka' moment, we had control over our EDI comms and translation once again, on a platform which was easy to understand and use. The support on offer is friendly, fast and informative, resolutions are explained in detail which is a great help!

"A good service, making our life easier"

What do you like best?

I had to work with Babelway last year on an EDI project, with SAP as backend. Babelway was very reliable, professional and knowledgeable. The concept of having one platform to interface your system with the rest of the world is very interresting. I'm now planning additional interfaces, with some other services, using json for example. It helps us use new technologies on a rather "old fashioned" ERP.

What do you dislike?

Honnestly, nothing that I really dislike about Babelway. So far they demonstrated being very customer focused, and it counts for me.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Stop having headache thinking about many different platforms to implement in order to interface with our partners. Being customers, vendors, distributors, agents, etc... A single connection is on, and the rest is handled by Babelway. They delivery the data in the format I can read and process without reinventing the wheel each time.

"I needed help getting a complex formula to handle empty data values"

What do you like best?

A. they got the answer correct.

B. they did it in less than 30 minutes.

What do you dislike?

Only that I have to do it all thru email.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The product is really geared towards those with strong technical background. It does everything the others do, but sometimes the GUI is a bit harder to follow. However, the price is right and if you are a technical person it can be learned and does a great job.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

They allow us to build files for a large number of other organizations based on a varied number of formats coming in and a couple standard formats going out.

"Awesome Product"

What do you like best?

I called Babelway the hidden gem of the internet, because it makes EDI transactions so easy to mange and configure. A very well designed easy to use web interface

What do you dislike?

Needs a better implementation training, being you only get so many helpdesk tickets per year. Try to find a way to get the user to a place where they can effectively use the software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Little better alerting in case of failure. And better implementation training.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

All our EDI needs, incoming load tenders, invoices, and status updates.

The broad spectrum of possibilities (which is still growing) is a definite asset for each environment that does eDI.

Easy to use USer Interface allows less technical people to do technical work.

Support is excellent, whether you are part of startup or a major company Babelway treats your support tickets with the same dignity and devotion

What do you dislike?

Not really anything to find because existing issues are addressed in a real agile way by the Babelway Team. So if you have a problem using their software impediments are removed very quickly

We've set up an entire edi platform making use of Babelway to do transformation between different formats

Recommendations to others considering the product

As mentioned in the required questions:

The pleasant interface of work, the availability of the helpdesk, the competence of the speaker

"Early days but everything is going great"

What do you like best?

The support from Babelway is fantastic, having the whole process as a web service is very beneficial and means reduction in server and hardware costs.

What do you dislike?

The billing is slightly complicated and message size limited could be greater, 100kb per message before being double charged seems very low. A message seems to be a rather hard to define structure, for example we split messages, so we have one incoming transmission, 2 out going transmissions, this gets charged as 2 messages.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Always read the billing small print and determine if costs are viable for you, also spend some time on the academy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Simplifying EDI across the organisation. Dynamically allowing us to integrate new suppliers easily.
