B2B Cloud Integration Leader Hubspan Launches New Self-Service Community Portal

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - April 7, 2011) - Hubspan, the leading provider of cloud-scale B2B integration solutions, today launched WebSpan Manager, a new Web-based community portal that provides customers and their integration communities with critical visibility and administrative control of their interactions on the WebSpan SaaS Integration Platform. WebSpan Manager is a flexible, on-demand community portal that provides self-service administration, including secure role-based access, process visibility and intelligence, and activity monitoring.

The release of WebSpan Manager is part of Hubspan's overall strategy to provide customers with the option to independently manage their B2B integration by exposing the rich functionality of Hubspan's cloud integration platform in a self-service environment.

"WebSpan Manager offers Hubspan customers the ability to leverage the economic and technical benefits of our cloud-based integration platform combined with the advantage of self-service management for increased visibility and control of their integration communities," said Trisha Gross, president and chief executive officer for Hubspan. "WebSpan Manager is another step in our ongoing commitment to provide process visibility and self-service to our customers, all delivered in the software-as-a-service model."

WebSpan Manager combines Hubspan's industry-leading cloud integration platform and solutions with a robust community portal to provide customers and their partners with self-service management and visibility into B2B integration processes. The portal provides customers a single Web destination to manage their company and user profiles, user access, on-demand reporting, transaction dashboards and trend analysis. With WebSpan Manager, customers save time by accessing a single destination for all management aspects of their integration process activity, including a quick, real-time view into the status of individual transactions.

Key features in WebSpan Manager include:

  • Secure Role-based Access to Integration Data: WebSpan Manager provides a secure, controlled environment for Hubspan customers to access real-time information and status reports of their B2B integration processes. Companies can establish clear access control rules for administrators and users. Users can be added, deleted and updated based on company requirements.

  • Comprehensive Visibility: WebSpan Manager enables a comprehensive view into integration transaction activity and message status. This includes time-frame settings, so customers can easily view a range of data within a particular period of time down to the last five minutes of transactions.

  • Real-time Reporting: Customers can access real-time data to better monitor important integration processes and transactions. 

The launch of WebSpan Manager comes just months after the release of WebSpan Analytics, an on-demand business intelligence tool that provides critical trending data around transactional volumes, top messages and connections, message status and other information. WebSpan Analytics is one area that can be accessed within the overall WebSpan Manager portal.

WebSpan Manager is included as a standard component of the WebSpan SaaS Integration Platform, and is available today to both current and new customers. To learn more about WebSpan Manager and the WebSpan SaaS Integration Platform, visit or contact
