Hubspan Reports Record Growth Connecting Companies to the Ariba Network

Business-to-Business Transactions on the Rise as Companies Work to Get Closer to Their Communities

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - Apr 3, 2012) - Hubspan, the leading provider of B2B cloud integration solutions, today announced record increases in their transaction volume of customers connecting backend ERP systems to the Ariba® Network. Since the launch of the partnership with Ariba, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARBA), the world's business commerce network, in 2010, Hubspan has experienced 5x quarterly increases in transaction volumes through the Ariba Network and expects continued momentum throughout 2012. This strong growth rate is attributed to the combination of the compelling business benefits offered by Ariba as well as the ease of realizing these benefits by deploying Hubspan's B2B integration solution.

"Aligning vision and business process between companies accelerates success," said Kate Vitasek, founder of Supply Chain Visions and author of Vested Outsourcing. "The partnership between Ariba and Hubspan helps companies mitigate risk, increase efficiency, and deliver value to the relationships they manage by providing tools to share information across the enterprise effectively."

B2B integration can be a complex and burdensome task for organizations of all sizes. Both on-premise and cloud-based ERP and CRM vendors are looking to the cloud to simplify business processes and extend their network communities. Hubspan's integration solution provides end-to-end business process automation across systems, applications and business rules. A simple subscription model enables companies to extend their business processes while delivering incremental benefits to customers in the form of cost savings and time-to-value. The strongest areas of growth include integration of e-commerce and accounts payable business processes across customers spanning North America as well as Europe and the Middle East.

"Business commerce is complex. At Ariba, we don't think it needs to be," said Joe Fox, Senior Director, Strategy, Ariba. "Working together with Hubspan, we're making it easy for companies to connect and collaborate with their trading partners across the entire commerce process and deliver efficiencies that positively impact their performance and their bottom lines."
