The Business Bundle

eCBK is an all-in-one bundle of business applications built on top of INToo communication framework. This bundle is for small and medium businesses that run from any simple computer with an internet connection.

These applications fall into three categories:

  • Interbnal Operations.
  • Business Development.
  • Communication.
eCBK Applications
    • Inventory & Supply Chain Management.
    • Sales & Purchase Order Management.
    • Packing & Receiving Shipping Note Management.
    • Sales & Purchase Invoice Management.
    • Account Management.
    • CRM.
    • Expense Management.
    • Administration.
eCBK Applications
  • Business Development - This category is to help the business to create new sales pipelines, gain new clients and discover suppliers for better buying prices. This category includes:

    • Global Catalogue for selling and acquiring clients.
    • Web communications.
eCBK Applications
  • Communication - This category helps the business to stay connected 24/7 without the need to faxes and emails. Consequently; this means the communication trails always under the company communication roof rather than segregated between company employees, which lead to loss of valuable audit trails for current and future business with clients and suppliers. Hence, no one will drop the ball. eCBK web messaging can’t be deleted or altered. This category consists of:

    • Managed login for clients and suppliers based on Netwroked SaaS.
    • Web messaging between your company with clients and suppliers.
    • Collaborative Document Communications (CDC).
    • Active CRM Actions (ACA).
    • Workflows.
eCBK Communication

eCBK helps you to:

  1. run your internal business operations.
  2. manage client & supplier collaborative communications with a high level of traceability and audit.
  3. sell and purchase with no stress anytime and anywhere.
  4. grow your business with minimum capital and pave the shorter road to pick up clients that you couldn't reach; by choosing whom to connect and send a request to connect.

Networked Software as a Service (N-SaaS)

N-SaaS for eCBK provides two types of web logins:
  1. Subscription-Based Web Login.
  2. This type of login is for the enrolled (subscribed) business into the eCBK network. Each enrolled business has multi-user logins (minimum of five logins depending on the subscription level) for the business’s employees.
  3. Managed Web Login.
  4. This type of login is for users who represent the clients and suppliers of the enrolled business. Each enrolled business can add as many of their clients’ and suppliers’ profiles. Each profile will have one managed web login. The managed login means that the enrolled business controls the issuing of user-name and password sets for their clients and suppliers. This managed web logins will allow the business to communicate and exchange business documents within eCBK network. This is made possible because of the data-architecture of N-SaaS.
These types of web logins are the foundation for the Collaborative Document Communications (CDC).

Collaborative Document Communications (CDC)

CDC takes the following necessary automatic actions which make the flow of communication happens in the background without any manual intervention:
  1. When your client sends an electronic purchase order, CDC will generate automatically a corresponding sales order based on your set of order terms and conditions.
  2. When you generate a sales (AR) invoice on behalf of a client (phone orders and desk orders), CDC will generate the corresponding purchase order for your client.
  3. When you author a packing slip, after submitting, CDC automatically will generate a mirror receiving shipping note for your client.
  4. Once you create a sales (AR) invoice (based on confirmed order on packing note depending on the order terms and conditions), CDC will generate the corresponding purchase (AP) invoice for your client.
  5. Once your client confirms the receipt of good listed in the receiving shipping note, CDC triggers a sequence of actions inside eCBK to populate the data for only the non-existing inventory items in your inventory pool and the corresponding quantities. The existing ones only the quantity attributes will be updated.


The workflows are to increase productivity, reduce business errors and support work automation. The workflows govern the process of:
  1. Issuing purchase/sales orders.
  2. Issuing sales (AR) and purchase (AP) invoices.
  3. Approving and paying expense applications.
