Activator is a client/server B2B and MFT connector solution that helps companies quickly move collaborative B2B transactions – including EDI – to the Internet.
Activator’s robust provisioning server framework allows you to establish last mile connections that automatically provide everything your partners, suppliers, distributors and customers need to exchange information with you — no matter what IT infrastructure they have in place. In minutes, your trading community can use the pre-configured Activator file transfer client to communicate with your company hub in a secure, automated and centrally managed environment.
Axway Activator is:
- Expandable: Connect trading partners in a single community, using the Internet protocols of your choice. As your comfort level and requirements grow, Activator can be upgraded to Axway Interchange for even more robust community management.
- Easy to Install: End users can download the pre-configured Activator software and install it in just minutes.
- Easy to Use: Activator’s user interface makes it easy for all members of your B2B community to exchange files with your organisation, even if they have no technical expertise. Automatic profile synchronisation ensures that information transferred between you and your trading partners is always up-to-date.
- Intelligent: End-to-end tracking, reporting and real-time alerts give you complete visibility of transaction status and volume. Additional monitoring and analysis capabilities are available for all file transfers and transactions on any platform.
- Secure: Each transaction is encrypted at message level, ensuring that data is secure.
Axway Provisioning Services
