Trading Partner /Application – Mailbox

Trading Partner  – Mailbox

Mailboxes allow you to organise, store, and manage trading partner documents and transactions, by providing business document repositories. In addition, setting up mailboxes within Sterling B2B Integrator can also facilitate how you stage and schedule data transmissions, making the storage and retrieval of files more transparent to all parties—senders and recipients alike
