Cleo's business-to-business managed file transfer and integration technologies help clients make informed decisions, lower IT and operational costs, send files to trading partners and other organizations, then coordinate, manage and route that information to appropriate parties and even directly into data systems. Cleo's Intuitive interfaces, flexible integration and over 500 pre-configured hosts allows Stonebranch to get customers up and running smoothly, quickly and securely.
