Document Engineering Services is an international consortium of experts supporting universal business interoperability through the use of open standards.

By providing the right skills, at different times, in different places we are able to provide both the expertise and the coverage required for successful implementation and management of electronic business processes.” says Tim McGrath, the Managing Director of Document Engineering Services.

A significant feature of Document Engineering Services is its focus on implementing electronic document delivery solutions based on open standards. In fact, the Directors of Document Engineering Services are some of the key players in the development of standards such as UN/CEFACT Core Components and the OASIS Universal Business Language standard (UBL).

The business model we have adopted is what we call 'profession open standards'. Facilitating the adoption of open standards by ensuring a professional support team is available to support them.” McGrath said.
