Liaison Leverages Strategic Partnership with NewEDI to Market Excess VAN Capacity, Offering Robust Tier 1 EDI VAN Services at a Fraction of Traditional Monthly Usage Costs
ATLANTA, GA – June 26, 2013
Liaison Technologies, a global integration and data management company, today announced that the company has experienced 118 percent year-over-year volume growth for Liaison Exchange Network, its Electronic Document Interchange Value-added Network (EDI VAN). As a result of this rapid growth, Liaison is now ranked as the 4th largest provider of EDI VAN services worldwide.
Accelerating Liaison’s growth as a leading EDI VAN provider over the past year is the company’s strategic partnership with NewEDI. NewEDI provides EDI VAN service procurement that helps customers leverage excess EDI VAN capacity to achieve even greater scalability and cost efficiency. Over the past year, NewEDI has succeeded in onboarding a number of EDI VAN customers across diverse industries directly onto Liaison’s network.
“EDI VAN services have been around for more than 50 years, and as the industry has matured with greater standardization and consistency, it is now possible in many cases to procure these services from reputable, top tier VANs without protracted contract negotiations, complex evaluation processes, or prohibitive pricing structures,” said Kevin Rathie, president of NewEDI. “Through our partnership with Liaison, we’re actively working to evolve the way these mature and well-understood services are packaged and sold, delivering a more scalable offering backed by ready access to Liaison’s experienced support team, and giving customers greater control and flexibility.”
“We chose NewEDI for two reasons: first, the lower price point and full customer service support; and second, the fact that their EDI VAN services are delivered by Liaison Exchange Network, a high availability tier-1 provider,” said Tom Suellentrop, DP Manager at V.F. Grace, a wholesale trade company. “NewEDI has saved our company close to 80 percent on EDI VAN costs.”
Through the partnership with NewEDI, Liaison provides an alternative channel for businesses to make an offer on the price they want to pay per kilo-character (KC) for EDI services. With simple “click through” contracts, no minimum spending requirements, no hidden fees, or cancellation penalties, Liaison and NewEDI offer customers the most flexible, hassle-free EDI VAN solution to meet demand while simultaneously reducing costs, particularly for small and medium businesses. The solution is also fully supported with Liaison’s simple EDI migration, responsive customer support, and reliable service, as well as Liaison Enterprise Navigation System (LENS) that delivers complete real-time visibility into their Business-to-Business (B2B) transactions.
“Liaison has always been open to and supportive of new, innovative approaches to help our customers electronically enable their businesses,” said Rob Consoli, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Liaison Technologies. “Our partnership with NewEDI has been an important catalyst in driving our growth and success over the past year, but more importantly, it has empowered businesses through a more efficient and effective EDI VAN procurement process.”
