Secure Data Transmission


In this digital age, we are surrounded by information that needs to be transferred and communicated between parties across the supply chain, immediately and seamlessly. This vast amount of data doesn’t all come from the same place. Life would be so much easier if it did. Instead, we have to deal with different host management systems, claims systems and a range of applications and technologies that have to communicate with one another. This is what CAPS is all about – connecting our industry by creating a common language that enables different system to understand one another and share information.
