ECGrid® provides comprehensive interconnect management for providers of on-demand B2B applications and software OEMs requiring streamlined EDI network connectivity. ECGrid® maintains first class reliability, system accountability, detailed and accurate reporting, and a support model offered by no other EDI network provider.
Loren Data ECGrid® is a network of networks, that helps our partners expand and focus on adding Value to their B2B products and services. ECGrid® EDI Network Service categories:
• Transport Services • Directory Services • Reporting Services • Exception Processing Services • Support Services
Tying this together is ECGridOS, a Web Services-based API that allows the customer to completely integrate their system seamlessly into the ECGrid® Infrastructure.
The ECGrid® architecture complements a service provider’s line of business by allowing them to apply resources and attention to distinguishing their services and increasing market share – not the commodity EDI Interchange Routing services that beguile every service provider. ECGrid is operated by data communications specialists skilled at delivering reliable messaging at the lowest costs.
Unlike other specialized private messaging systems, regardless of their size and market share, ECGrid is an Adaptive Node Network. ECGrid automatically adapts to each external network , normalizing entry data in preparation for ECGrid® routing.
Payloads on ECGrid are managed as X12.56 Mailbags. Each VAN or Service Provider’s connection to ECGrid is individually configured and monitored. We are leaders in X12.56 Mailbag Protocol implementation, publishing widely on the subject, and provide guidance on the evolving x12.5x industry standards to our partners.
