The inter-organizational systems (IOS) affect all aspects of market and trade relationships, including search, negotiation, procurement, invoicing, and payment. This electronic links improves efficiency and effectiveness in markets and other inter-organizational transactions by: decoupling the flow of products from flow of information and market processes; reducing transaction costs by replacing costly physical markets with electronic marketplaces; and improving the ability to audit and monitor transactions, allowing the organization to increase delegation of responsibility without losing control.
