Mining Exchange Live!
Powered by Commerce One, the Mining Exchange (www.quadrem.com) went live on October 31, 2000. Headquartered in Los Angeles, Quadrem is a consortium, founded by 15 of the world's largest mining companies. Quadrem is focused on improving worldwide supply chain efficiency and procurement between the founding members, it's suppliers and the rest of the mining community.
Through two months of hard work by the joint Commerce One/SAP team, the following was accomplished on October 31st:
- Commerce One Net Market Maker, including a full marketing web site, buyer and supplier registration with functionality in English, French, Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese.
- Training materials were translated and classes conducted in all languages by Commerce One staff.
- Worldwide live auction transactions.
- Participation by over 20 suppliers with buying organizations set up for all 15 founding companies.
- Transactions that also included Roundtrip, and SAP to MarketSite using the Business Connector and XPC to the marketplace.
As always, many people at Commerce One contributed to the success of this project and should be recognized. The team of folks that have lived, ate and breathed Quadrem for the last two months include:
