I don't use either the TimberSmart or Lumberflex inventory management systems. Can I still use TheTimberXchange?

In the two months since the first despatch on the 14 February 2001 data associated with over 3000 packets of timber was sent from suppliers to customers. This volume will increase dramatically over the next few months.
Will the expected increase in documents going through TheTimberXchange affect performance?
No. TheTimberXchange is built using the latest Microsoft products including Biztalk Server and SQL Server. These products are designed to handle very large transaction volumes.
