History of Interprise Software
Before the days of eBay, Amazon and Google, commercial enterprise was strictly prohibited on the Internet. In 1995 the U.S. National Science Foundation finally ended the restrictions on commercial traffic, and in 1997 Interprise Software was launched. Interprise Software did not invent the concept of delivering enterprise software over the Internet, but we have been awarded over a dozen government research grants to perfect it. That's what has enabled us to provide enterprise-class functionality to nearly 100 customers over the Internet.
In 2002, Amazon.com launched Amazon Web Services and the term cloud computing began to make its way into the IT vocabulary. We were already convinced about the merits of cloud computing, but an introduction to a leading buying group later that year led to our greatest epiphany.
Although any company can benefit from cloud computing, group purchasing organizations (GPOs) represent a very unique opportunity. The relationships that they broker between buyers and sellers result in a distributed supply chain network that can only be automated economically with a cloud-based solution.
We did some research and found independent tools that could provide some automation, but no single integrated solution to automate the entire supply chain for a GPO. We met with leading cloud-based software providers to discuss the special needs of GPOs and could not find one that was willing to take on the challenge. It was then that we found our niche.
