D. Smith. "Being able to outsource both services will dramatically reduce our in-house overhead and also give us access to the benefits of both solutions, from SEEBURGER's tight integration with our SAP ERP system to Legisym's digital signature technology to renovate how our customers utilize CSOS."SEEBURGER's Healthcare Edge The partnership also extends SEEBURGER's advantages for automating trading partner communications, data exchange and transaction visibility in the healthcare supply chain.
