Service Announcement: New Loren Data Setups will be suspended November 1, 2013

GXS will no longer process new trading partner requests on the Loren Data network VAN Interconnect starting on November 1, 2013. This moratorium on new connections is being implemented to ensure that all clients impacted by the upcoming termination of the Loren Data VAN Interconnect are provided enough time and notice to migrate to alternatives.

Any GXS client enabled and defined to the Loren Data VAN Interconnect prior to November 1, 2013 will be able to use the service up until the date of termination which is March 4, 2014. GXS will be monitoring the environment from November 1, 2013 through March 4, 2014 to ensure that all users have been notified and migrated.

GXS maintains over 100 VAN Interconnects – more than any other service provider in the market. We would be happy to work with you and your trading partners to find a solution that supports one of our alternative VAN Interconnects or a solution natively on GXS.

If you have not already contacted us in regard to this matter, we have a support team ready to assist you in exploring alternative options to route your data if needed. Feel free to contact this support team by sending an email to GXS.INTERCONNECT@GXS.COM. More information can be found in the Interconnect Service Announcements section of our GXS Support Services website.
