The Value Chain Agent (iVA) from iPoint automatically visits designated portals, at regular intervals, checks for changes, reports them autonomously, and leaves a digital fingerprint for the manufacturer to indicate that the supplier visited the portal at the required time. It also extracts, converts, and integrates data with internal IT infrastructures. If the manufacturer requests data, the system writes it in the manufacturer's systems after the internal processing has been completed. Bidirectional integration runs seamlessly in the background. The iVA is driven by missions that tell the agent what it has to do, where it can find what it is looking for, whom it should notify, and which information it needs to read. The system adapts the missions as soon as something changes on the portal.
