Cost Effective
VAN Connectivity

Use any VAN worldwide via a single connection to the ecosio Integration Hub - transparent per-message billing with 24/7 monitoring & support

What is a VAN?

Value-added networks (VANs) are closed-circuit EDI networks to which companies – such as GXS or Ariba – can be connected, and over which data is exchanged via different protocols. To communicate with a company using a VAN, you generally require a VAN of your own, which can quickly lead to high running costs.

One VAN connection - a worldwide network

ecosio replaces the need for a VAN connection. Using just a single connection to ecosio Integration Hub, messages can be sent to and received from any VAN worldwide. Should a business currently make use of several VANs, ecosio can consolidate these into a single connection.

Central monitoring is also a key benefit, as ecosio will deal quickly and efficiently with any connection issues and technical support needs.
