CData Arc Recognized as a Top EDI Software Vendor


We're proud to announce that CData Arc has been selected by as a top Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) software vendor in 2021.

EDI is the automated, computer-to-computer exchange of standard electronic business documents between business partners over a secure, standardized connection. The technology helps organizations get more done, speed up logistics timelines, and eliminate manual errors by automating the B2B communications traditionally done using paper.

After reviewing more than 100 EDI software companies, chose CData Arc as a top solution available on the market. They compiled their list by considering factors most important to businesses, including applicability statement 2 (AS2) compatibility, improving information flow, and reporting.

Drummond-Certified AS2 Compatibility

AS2 is one of the most popular methods for transporting data securely and reliably over the Internet. This is the EDI messaging protocol millions of companies use to transfer files between trading partners.

AS2 creates an envelope for the EDI data, allowing it to be sent securely - using digital certificates and encryption — over the Internet. It also supports signed receipts and non-repudiation to provide legal proof that your trading partner has received the message after it has been delivered.

CData Arc provides fully Drummond-Certified AS2, guaranteeing the highest level of AS2 interoperability and reliability available.
