Rocket Software (Rocket), a global technology leader that develops enterprise modernization and optimization solutions for Fortune 500 companies and government agencies, today released enhancements to Rocket® EDX, an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) cloud managed service that lets users outsource all their global EDI requirements, day-to-day tasks, and change management needs to the proven EDI experts at Rocket Software. Users retain complete visibility while Rocket EDX ensures the mechanics of successful global EDI. 

Rocket EDX 6 provides a highly secure, on-demand solution for outsourcing EDI-related tasks, allowing users to focus on what they are experts in—their business. Rocket EDX integrates with users’ existing ERP and supports commonly used EDI standards and protocols, while the Rocket EDX Web Portal provides an intuitive, easy to use interface with operational and business-intelligence insights into EDI activity, ready to act upon. Further, the solution delivers end-to-end management of EDI B2B supply chain integration as a service, ensuring document flow with both EDI and non-EDI enabled trading partners anywhere, anytime. 

“EDX has become an essential daily tool for EVCO Plastics. Rocket’s experienced customer service team makes modifying the solution for our constantly evolving needs easy,” said David Wollin, Software Application Specialist at EVCO Plastics. “The EDX team is always there when we need them and, because they are so well-versed with the nuances of EDI, always adapts EDX to our specific requirements, making onboarding quick and enabling us to work with our trading partners in a timelier manner.” 

Research shows that cloud-based EDI solutions save an average of 25–75% in upfront costs, plus 50–75% in long term expenses like software updates and hardware upgrades. The Rocket EDX SaaS model provides a low entry cost to global EDI by removing the need for users to purchase and/or pay for servers, more hardware, translation and mapping software, and communications software and services.  

“In today’s rapidly changing business world, leaders must be able to react quickly to unforeseen issues and new opportunities as they arise, which requires investing in B2B integration solutions that allow them to integrate and do business with their key business partners, whether they are customers or suppliers, 24/7.” said P. Gary Gregory, President, Database and Connectivity Business Unit at Rocket Software. “Rocket EDX 6 provides reliable EDI as a service, helping customers stay a step ahead of their competition by streamlining integration with partners, a critical need in an increasingly interconnected business environment.”
