SNS Announces Signed Agreement in Partnership with Boomi for Implementation of Business-To-Business Integration with Alliance Boots

Sed El Bauchrieh, Lebanon (PressExposure) May 26, 2008 -- The Alliance Boots health and beauty group comprises: • approximately 3,000 retail outlets (including associates) - of which approximately 2,700 have a pharmacy • a wholesale network of over 380 depots (including associates) serving over 125,000 outlets.

With a project of this size and the number of different applications to be integrated, the choice of the integration layer application becomes critical. Alliance Boots has opted for the use of Boomi Visual Integration Platform to ensure the synchronisation and data integrity of the different databases of their applications: CRM, ERP, WMS, TMS. The integration solution will be deployed at all sites starting with the France offices as a first go-live.

Boomi improves the efficiency and effectiveness of different size businesses by enabling B2B, application and data integration in one easy-to-deploy, simple-to-use product. Boomi's integration projects are up and running in weeks, not months, and do not require highly technical programming resources.

SNS has proven over the last few years its competency in different integration projects around the Gulf and Middle-East and was also highly involved in several projects in Europe using, among others, the Boomi integration tool. Its highly professional and experienced technical consultants and its numerous achievements on various engagements have incited Boomi to choose SNS as a partner on this strategic project.

"SNS has been reselling our product for sometime now and handling the design and implementation of integration interfaces at clients' site," said Mr. Bob Moul, CEO of Boomi Inc. "Their success record has pushed us in requiring their services and expertise on this project."

"We are proud to sign this project along side Boomi with Alliance Boots" said Mario Ghosn, General Manager of SNS. "Integration projects are always critical and require a lot of effort and I know our technical consultants will rise to the challenge."
