BroadVision's Enterprise Social Networking Solution Powers Global Supply Chain

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Aug. 18, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BroadVision (Nasdaq:BVSN), a pioneer in enterprise social networking solutions, today unveiled a strategic engagement with Aeroxchange, a leading supply-chain for the global aviation industry.  Aeroxchange has deployed a network of ten distinct communities on ClearvaleBroadVision's next-generation, cloud-based enterprise social networking platform – to accelerate communication, collaboration, and design development throughout its entire ecosystem.

The exchange – a global consortium sponsored by some of the largest airlines including Delta, FedEx, AirCanada, Lufthansa, Scandinavian Airlines, All Nippon Airways, Japan Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Singapore Airlines, Air New Zealand, and Air France/KLM – is one of the world's most vibrant and complex supply-chains, involving thousands of manufacturers, repair service providers, distributors, designers, and consultants that traditionally have struggled to collaborate more efficiently.  BroadVision's Clearvale – a highly scalable, cloud-based platform that enables businesses to easily develop and manage networks by themselves – has provided Aeroxchange with a unique solution.

"For some time, we've understood that a social networking solution might provide the foundation for future development and expanded collaboration," said Al Koszarek, President and CEO of Aeroxchange.  "But we had a few tough requirements.  First, the network would need to be hosted in the cloud providing security and worldwide availability. Second, the platform would need to be DIY (do-it-yourself), so as to minimize the learning curve and time-to-market.  Finally, the platform would need to enable us to easily navigate across a network of both public and private groups, because that reflects the way business is done in our world.  Clearvale met all three requirements.  We are only six months into this project, and already we are seeing results across the ecosystem."

Among other areas of performance where Aeroxchange has seen a boost are the quality of specs generated within several design communities, the ability to stimulate vibrant information-sharing across different groups, and the ability to collaborate on complex timelines set by airlines in the ecosystem.

"This is an industry - like many others - where a small improvement in the supply chain can make a huge difference to the top line, bottom line, or both," said Koszarek.  "Already, we are beginning to see a difference."
