EDI file transfer made easy and done right

Review Source: Capterra

I have worked with the Loren Data ECGrid-Hubbub EDI team for over 2 years now and have enjoyed almost every minute. Yes there have been some bumps along the way but in every case they have corrected any issues and maintained the solid data flow of EDI that our business needs. The ability to manage our EDI mailbox and connections all in simple and easy to use interface has made the conversion process easy and seamless. I have recommended this product to many of my colleagues and will continue to recommend Loren Data ECGrid-Hubbub for anyone doing EDI

Pros
Moving our EDI connections to EcGrid has been the most cost effective and easy way to manage our EDI data and trading partner connections. EcGrid's approach to the EDI trading model is a game changer, no more getting billed by some arcane model of total characters sent back from the dial-up days. With EcGrid I know it will be one fee for each connection no matter how many files move through that connection per month. This gives us the ability to forecast with greater accuracy the cost of our EDI and provides the way it should be done with the technology we have these days. The ability to create and manage multiple mailboxes and ID's all in a self service portal takes a lot of the complexity out of the process. The ability to quickly find a particular file or files from date ranges or different trading partners and have them resent or find out why they have not been received or sent has taken the guess work out of the process. The Support team at EcGrid is top-notch, they are able to find and resolve issues quickly and will if needed work directly with trading partners to make sure the data is flowing.

Cons
I want to be fair and balanced but I am having a hard time thinking of something I don't like about the system. It is simple, clean and easy to manage EDI. EDI doesn't have to be hard or complicated so the Loren Data ECGrid-Hubbub platform is not complicated.

Review Source: Capterra

I joined my current company and was extremely surprised when I learned what they were using. Our monthly bills were through the roof and the service was not at all stable. I had worked at a previous company where we used #ecgrid and I knew exactly what to expect. I just needed to convince the organization. It was a no brainer once I showed them the cost savings. We have successfully migrated, and have been using the product for a year without any down time whatsoever!! As you all know, there is nothing OK with having your EDI flow down for any period of time. Well, the #ecgrid team did all the work for us with regards to converting and notifying all of our existing trade partner connections and we set a live date and all went seamlessly! THE BEST!

Pros
Customer service is fantastic! The team responds very quickly though there are very few times we need the team. The product just works! Communications are timely, maintenance is on point, and outages are unheard of!

Cons
I got nothing! It just works! Thank you!!

We are a serviceprovider that provides EDI services to our customers often using EC Grid as our connection gateway.

Pros
The ability to interface directly via API

Cons
I am missing an interface for managing / controlling / setting up stuff without using the API.

Response from Loren Data


Hi Jesper, thank you for the review! In fact, you do have access to an interface/dashboard for setups that you may not be using yet. Our NetOps team will be in touch to explain all of the great features (the same ones you are used to using with the APIs!) and get you and your team access.

I install systems to handle EDI for small businesses. ECGrid was a simple, cost-effective way to get my clients online quickly. It's easy to manage and integrate. Once it's installed and working, I can focus on other tasks.

Pros
Simple to install and use. Reliable network. Much better than the big VANs that are being consolidated. Online setup of interconnects.

Cons
Nothing. I cannot find any reason why ECGrid should not be used.

Thanks for the nice review, Earl. And we appreciate your business!

Review Source: Capterra

I've personally known the people behind Loren Data for a long time now, so when it came time to setting up a VAN Account, I definitely reached out. After doing due diligence, I pulled the trigger. This has been the best VAN experience I've had in my long EDI career. I couldn't be happier.

Pros
What I like the most is the people. The team behind Loren Data is very knowledgeable, friendly, straight forward and highly responsive.

Cons
If I must say something here... The interface could use a face lift.

Thanks for the review and input, Carlos! We are continually upgrading our systems and have passed your comments to our team.

Benefits

Founded 1987 by Todd Gould, Loren Data Corp created the ECGrid VAN in 2001 - there were other VANs, but they were not engineered for the emerging class of e-commerce service providers (web-based supply chain pioneers). Todd created an architecture that can handle hundreds, thousands, and tens of thousands of mailboxes and network ID's for this emerging sector. ECGrid services large service providers, like SPS Commerce, NetEDI, Covalentworks, and Energy Services Group, and many more. In 2009 Todd released the first version of ECGridOS, at the time a 70 function Web Services API - Now, ECGridOS has hundreds of functions, supports unified AS2, and offers far more the EDI Communications...ECGridOS is a programmable trading community management platform - a real proven system that can be used to embed the full suite of EDI Functions into Enterprise software, cloud applications, and custom integrated back office systems.


X12 EDI, EDIFACT, and Tradacoms routing headers supported. Transport via FTP, AS2, VPN and SOAP API. ECGrid is node-based, superior to VAN mailboxes for multitenant SAAS. Connections: +90 VANs, Service Providers, direct hubs. Support thousands of ID's & user accounts with ECGrid. It's what we do. ECGridOS is the only EDI API (WS/SOAP) for embedded EDI comms and complete partner management for OEM software or hosted systems. Create mailboxes, accounts, interconnections, real-time status, mailbag meta-data. Much more, under your custom software control.
ECGrid and ECGridOS are built for the B2B Cloud-Commerce Revolution. Be your OWN EDI Network, with ECGridOS!
