The SISCommerce Solution
SISCommerce is an e-commerce solution that is developed and owned by Star Information Systems. The solution streamlines the purchasing process by enabling SIS customers and their vendors to trade electronically through the SISCommerce web platform.
As one of few maritime e-commerce providers to successfully outlive the the “e-commerce boom”, SISCommerce has now been well established in the market for more than a decade. SISCommerce is based on MTML 1.5, a standardized e-commerce format developed by the Maritime e-Commerce Association (MeCA).
SISCommerce is transaction-oriented, offering exchange of trade messages between buyers, vendors and freight forwarders. SISCommerce enables customers to send inquiries and orders electronically from Star FSM, thus reducing the need for time-consuming traditional communication methods such as e-mail, fax and phone. When quotes and order confirmations are returned by vendors through SISCommerce, prices, comments and delivery details are fed directly into the purchasing system – saving time and effort in the purchasing process.
