MADISON, Wis., Aug. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- B/2BNOW, a leading provider of electronic data interchange (EDI) solutions for the SAP S/4HANA Cloud enterprise resource planning (ERP) system has closed first round funding and is rapidly acquiring new clients. Integral to this expansion is Esker, a worldwide leader in AI-driven process automation solutions and pioneer in cloud computing.

"We are very excited to have closed our Seed Equity Round with CSA Partners and Esker," said Mike Kersels, CEO and founder of B/2BNOW. "The Esker partnership will allow us to leverage their industry-leading UI to present data in ways that will empower companies to base decisions on trend reporting and real-time dashboards. Our funding will also enable B/2BNOW to develop world-first innovations for our SAP customers, including Blockchain for EDI."

B/2BNOW is one of the earliest adopters in the S/4HANA space. While traditional managed service providers are waiting to support the platform until it's more established, B/2BNOW is the first in the world to implement an EDI solution for S/4HANA public cloud. B/2BNOW's solution gives businesses ready to switch to S/4HANA an advantage by providing offerings that work now and as the platform matures.

As a relatively new startup led by industry veteran Kersels, B/2BNOW completed its initial round of funding, of which Esker was responsible for 40 percent of the total amount raised. Steve Smith, COO at Esker, will also be joining B/2BNOW's board of directors. CSA Partners, LLC out of Milwaukee, Wisconsin led the round and has invested in other start-ups such as Onepanel and Fanbox®.
