The online business-to-business market is exploding and Forrester Research projects that this sector will grow to $1.3 trillion by 2003. In the context of international trade, processes have not evolved and continue to be nearly as labor and paper-intensive today as they were hundreds of years ago. The most significant obstacle to meeting this projection is the lack of a payment mechanism for large dollar cross-border transactions. Credit cards made the tremendous growth in the business-to-consumer sector possible; however, there is no comparable payment method for the business-to-business market. In this thesis, I will introduce the Bolero project and TradeCard system. The Bolero project can do business across the system today, radically speeding up the international trade process, allowing documents and data to be exchanged online between all parties in the trade chain. The TradeCard system is patented transaction settlement and documentary compliance systems that are the ideal solution for businesses seeking to buy and sell goods online and across borders. The both system deliver a secure, reliable, cost-effective and user friendly international trade solution that puts the business of trade back into the hands of buyers and sellers.
