“Name Your Price” approach delivers Tier 1 secure EDI VAN services at a fraction of monthly usage costs, providing access to a robust infrastructure and seamless trading partner migration
ATLANTA — May 3, 2012 —
Liaison Technologies, a global provider of secure cloud-based integration and data management services and solutions, today announced a remarketing partnership with NewEDI. NewEDI is a secure Electronic Document Exchange Value-added Network (EDI VAN) service procurement company that is changing the way companies buy EDI VAN services. NewEDI’s unique “Name Your Price” approach is a new model and proven solution that lowers costs by 30 percent or more by allowing businesses to make an offer on the price they want to pay per kilo-character (KC) for document exchange services. This no-contract, no-minimum-spend model also eliminates administrative overhead fees to further reduce costs.
Much like airlines and hotels that discount excess seats or rooms, NewEDI leverages excess EDI VAN capacity. In partnership with Liaison, NewEDI lowers the cost of communicating with a trading partner network by selling access to unused network capacity on the Liaison Exchange Network (formerly nuBridges VAN), one of the industry’s fastest growing secure Tier-1 EDI VAN services.
“EDI VAN services have been around for decades, but the way they’re sold is antiquated and companies are paying unnecessarily high costs,” said Kevin Rathie, president of NewEDI. “We’ve taken a new approach by selling VAN services using an intuitive web-based process, where customers can name their price. This saves companies a significant amount in monthly fees, making EDI VAN very affordable for small to mid-volume businesses. For high-volume companies, it can literally save thousands of dollars per month.”
NewEDI provides fast, secure and reliable electronic transmission of EDI documents across the supply chain to expedite the order-to-cash lifecycle, reduce errors and accelerate revenue realization. With one connection to NewEDI, companies can instantly exchange information with their trading partners. NewEDI supports AS2, FTP, async and bi-sync protocols and manages all trading partner connectivity, and also takes care of migrating and on-boarding trading partners at no charge.
“NewEDI’s evolutionary approach to selling EDI VAN services is refreshing, and we’re excited to be part of this new model,” said Bob Renner, CEO of Liaison Technologies. “It opens a new market for Liaison by taking our excess capacity and making our Tier-1 EDI VAN services affordable to hundreds of thousands of lower transaction volume trading partners worldwide.”
NewEDI provides interoperability to all major networks through its partnership with Liaison, scales to handle any amount of transaction volume, and maintains records for compliance audits and recovery. In addition to benefiting from using top-tier EDI VAN services, NewEDI customers are supported by Liaison’s superior service level agreement and have access to Liaison technical experts, who provide assistance in all areas of EDI operations such as mapping, translation, additional software and tools.
