What are you looking for?


ID’s do not need to change, they will migrate perfectly, just as they are!

You data will not change, as a result, your maps are fine just the way they are.

Not a problem! Typically, the difference is at the GS level which means they are all considered to be one partner (even if they are considered many partners by you, internally). If the difference is at the ISA level, each one would be considered a separate partner.

Our typical implementation starts at 10:00 in the morning and is completed by noon.

In all likelihood, we already have AS2 connections with your AS2 trading partners, so once the AS2 connection information is exchanged they can be switched to BOLD VAN. And if we don’t already have it, we will work with your trading partners to establish the connection prior to cut-over.

Your VAN trading partners do not need to do anything. We handle everything at the VAN level. The only exception is a very small number of trading partners (Caterpillar comes to mind) that require connectivity testing, but we have done this many times and will complete this in no time.

Prior to the implementation we will discuss the number of trading partners you have, and their ID’s. Depending on your communication method you, or your team, may be assist in a communications test. During the implementation you just watch the data flow into and out of your system. Also, you can check our dashboard to see the status of each trading partner in real time.


BOLD VAN only looks at unique ISA Sender / Receiver ID combinations; a unique ISA Sender / Receiver ID combination with multiple GS ID’s counts as a single trading partner.

No, there is no extra charge for AS2 trading partners.

It does not matter how many trading partners you have set up on our system, you will only be billed for the trading partners you exchange data with for that given month.

At BOLD VAN a Trading Partner is defined as a unique ISA Sender / Receiver ID combination. We do not consider GS ID’s in this calculation. For example: Let’s say your company has a single ISA ID and you exchange documents with Wal-Mart and Target in a given month. This counts as two trading partners. To take the example further, let’s say you support EDI for two separate businesses, each with their own unique ISA ID, and each of them exchanges documents with Wal-Mart and Target in a given month. This counts as four trading partners.


BOLD VAN is built on a robust platform that connects tens of thousands of trading partners exchanging nearly 2 million interchanges per month. BOLD VAN boasts better than 99.998% uptime over the last 10 years.

AS2 is a method to securely and reliably transmit data over the internet using certificates and encryption.

EDI stands for Electronic Data Interchange. At a very high level, EDI is the electronic exchange of documents. EDI enables automation and integration. It provides standards for the formatting and exchanging of documents, and is meant to work regardless of the platform or systems used by the sending party or the receiving party. A VAN helps enable this process by providing the means of transmission of these documents, not unlike a post office enables the sending of letters and other types of documents.

VAN stands for Value Added Network. It is essentially a virtual post office consisting of mailboxes belonging to you and each of your trading partners. Data is routed between mailboxes based on ISA Sender / Receiver ID.


We support data from any industry.

You do not need to move your current AS2 trading partners to BOLD VAN. However, many companies find that, with BOLD VAN pricing, it is advantageous to move AS2 to BOLD VAN in order to:
  • Standardize all communications
  • Eliminate annual AS2 licensing fees and reduce the number of servers to maintain
  • Eliminate issues with firewalls
  • Eliminate issues with certificates
  • Eliminate Complicated AS2 troubleshooting and support issues
Perhaps for the first time ever, a VAN is a viable economic alternative to AS2!

By default we do 10 minute retries and 72 hour timeout. This is configurable to whatever you and your team prefer.
