As supply chain partner networks grow, so, often, does the complexity of electronic data interchange (EDI) processes. With multiple Value Added Networks (VANs) in an EDI landscape, processes can easily become tangled and obscure, and central process governance frustrating and costly. Not only does gaining access to various mailboxes and networks cost money, resolving issues takes a lot of time when you can’t identify where an error has occurred (let alone who needs to be contacted to resolve it).

So how can processes be simplified and costs reduced?

As we explore in this webinar, the answer lies in enlisting the help of a fully managed EDI solution. With this approach, disparate VAN connections are consolidated into one reliable and easily manageable “last mile” connection. Join our EDI experts to find out more.

Topics covered will include:

  • Understanding VAN topologies and their implications
  • Cost considerations and the problem of direct connection to multiple VANs
  • Consolidation of VAN connections into one connection to a single fully managed VAN
  • Planning and executing a smooth transition with a fully managed service provider
