Enterworks, Inc., a leading provider of real-time cataloging and process automation solutions for e-marketplaces and information portals, and Bizbots (BusinessBots, Inc.), a leader in business-to-business digital exchange technology, announced today the signing of a sales and marketing partnership. Under this agreement, Enterworks will integrate its back-end content and process integration capabilities with BizBot's net market exchange engine.

"This agreement will give our customers a competitive advantage by enabling the real-time inventory management and electronic bidding process that is necessary to operate successful online exchanges."

Bizbots' next-generation e-commerce engine enables companies to create powerful, real-time double-sided net exchanges.

Both components of the Enterworks suite will be integrated with Bizbots' core technology to provide front- and back-end integration for online exchanges. Enterworks Content Integrator™ will facilitate the addition of a procurement system by enabling real-time dynamic distributed catalogs for online exchanges. In addition, Enterworks Process Integrator™ will enable the management and coordination of transactions between suppliers and buyers throughout the entire back-end system.
