Sheffield, United Kingdom, December 11, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Perceptant (www.perceptant.com), the on-demand Supply Chain Management and Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) Company, today unveiled its free to use, global value added network service to customers.
Supply Chain Exchange 2.0 (www.perceptant.com/services_edi_van.shtml), harnesses all the leading attributes of competitive Value-Added Networks, including security, robustness, scalability and traceability but offers users the ability to exchange data and messages on an inclusive, free to use basis.
The service is not only designed to be used in conjunction with Perceptant’s SCMaaS (Supply Chain Management as a Service) suite of supply chain, B2B integration and electronic data interchange (EDI) solutions but also allows connections from complimentary third party applications.
“Now companies not only have access to a trading-grid of World-class supply chain and EDI applications but also a Value Added Network that doesn’t penalise them based on increased usage” says Matthew Slinn, CEO and founder of Perceptant. “For existing users of Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) and Value Added Networks this initiative could save them $m’s, for companies contemplating the use of a VAN or worried about security issues relating to AS2, FTP and P2P this is the answer”.
“With AMR Research (www.amrresearch.com) recently estimating that the supply chain management (SCM) applications market will grow 7% annually for the next five years, despite the gloomy economic conditions of 2008, it’s plain to see companies will place an increasing reliance on interconnected applications and services” says Tim Howden, Senior Supply Chain Consultant. “Supply Chain vendors have historically hampered the growth of these initiatives by charging customers based on data volumes and network usage or expecting companies to send sensitive information and data across unsecured Internet connections. It’s therefore refreshing to see Perceptant has finally broken this mould and we expect significant demand for their service”.
