Recent studies by leading analyst firms have shown that standard EDI transactions represent between 85% and 90% of total B2B transaction volume, growing at 4% per year. As one study explains, “EDI will continue to be the primary type of B2B interaction for many years to come.”

In this context, the InterTrade value proposition of managing all B2B communications under a common umbrella shines. It allows InterTrade customers to radically reduce complexity and total communication costs while improving visibility on transaction delivery for all trading partners, regardless of the communication protocol used.

The InterTrade TradeLinks communication platform centralizes delivery of business documents for all standard B2B protocols – VAN, AS2, FTP, Web services and more. Communication between your internal application and our data center can all be tunneled through the fully automated ecConnect software, providing secure and reliable unattended communications using the Internet.

InterTrade has been a Tier-1 interconnected VAN since 2001. This provides its clients with full visibility on the delivery of their business-critical documents, including inter-Van mailbag delivery. Furthermore, the documents exchanged through VAN interconnects do not carry any additional charge.

The TradeLinks platform also supports all standard Internet-based B2B protocols such as AS2, allowing InterTrade customers to benefit from full AS2 on-demand connectivity or AS2 brokerage services.
