EasyLink EDI Services, a leading global provider of Electronic Data Interchange Solutions as well as secure desktop messaging and email to fax services, announced Standard Life, a leading asset management company that operates worldwide, has utilized EasyLink’s FTS (File Transfer System) Enterprise Gateway solution to manage their large volume EDI transactions.
Standard Life could no longer support their growth of EDI data on their current legacy systems along with the cost specialist skills needed to support it. HMRC (Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs) end of fiscal year submissions/approval process, in the United Kingdom, presented a sense of urgency to implement a solution with the ability to deliver high volumes of EDI transactions in extremely short data transmission times.
Standard Life’s Colin Lakats, Technical Solutions Designer, stated, “EasyLink’s quick and effective implementation of the EasyLink FTS Enterprise Gateway provided substantial cost savings in hardware/software licensing and application support for Standard Life. Standard Life’s IFA (Independent Financial Advisors) network was supported by the expansion the new platform which provided HMRC compliance with little supported effort.
