Be Your Own VAN!

“ECGrid has proven to be the most reliable EDI Network over the last decade.”

Archie Black, President & CEO
SPS Commerce


Let’s keep this simple:

You are an EDI power user. The VANs have failed you, so you have done the hard work of setting up your own EDI communications system with FTP/SFTP and AS2 for your trading partners can connect directly to you.

In fact, you have cobbled together your own rudimentary VAN; however, a significant number of your trading partners have to route through a VAN because you don’t have Interconnects. So you have to keep that using that annoying VAN mailbox and pay through the nose for it.
What if YOU could be the VAN?
What would that do to your costs?

Since 2000, Loren Data has enabled companies like yours to take control of its own destiny with ECGrid.

ECGrid is the “secret” weapon that has allowed companies such as SPS Commerce, CovalentWorks and BoldVAN to compete toe-to-toe with the VANs, and you can, too. ECGrid is the only system designed to allow you to be the VAN!

Important Stuff On Resolution Between Loren Data and GXS (OpenText)


Light at the End of the Tunnel?

Light at the End of the TunnelThe situation is evolving rapidly. Almost immediately after my last post, OpenText began sending out notices to its customers announcing that they are ready to roll out a “network level solution with Loren Data” and that “the migration schedule will depend on coordination with Loren Data.”

We are cautiously optimistic.

ECGrid Network Operations has confirmed that OpenText did successfully complete a test on the 29th of January through our OpenText-ICC interconnect — without our knowledge that this was a test. However, so far no one from OpenText has contacted us, or has answered our inquiries, to let us know about these plans or coordinate a migration schedule.

In the meantime, sit tight and let’s all be hopeful that OpenText is ushering in a new era of EDI VAN cooperation and advancement. This could be a huge win for everyone.

EDI: Your Future is Calling


Yet another great post from Alan Wilensky

In considering these actions and the upcoming appeal, and the 55,000,o000 API calls made to Todd’s fantastic EDI Platform….I would say that in terms of merit, Loren Data Corp and its wonderful partners, the developers who wrote the code that made those API calls….will eventually outweigh GXS’ where it counts: In delivering value to the companies who are “calling EDI’s Future”, a future where the innovators become preeminent.
