GraceBlood's VelociLink Logo

GraceBlood’s ubiquitous managed EDI service is getting a bit of a face lift. You may have seen some new branding in recent weeks referring to our VelociLink™ platform. What exactly is VelociLink™ and how can it help you grow your business? In the dynamic landscape of supply chain, where seamless communication and data exchange are crucial, Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) has played a pivotal role for decades. But where staid and inflexible solutions have dominated the scene due to industry acquisitions, outdated standards and predatory business practices, GraceBlood is changing the way EDI is perceived. In other words, VelociLink™ has entered the chat.

VelociLink™, our cutting-edge managed EDI platform, has emerged as a powerful solution designed to streamline your business processes. With three distinct levels – Essentials, Extended, and Enterprise – VelociLink™ offers a tailored approach to meet the diverse needs of businesses of all sizes, across myriad verticals.

  1. VelociLink™ Essentials: At the core of our Managed EDI Service is VelociLink™ Essentials, providing fundamental features to kickstart your EDI journey. This entry-level option ensures compliance with industry standards, facilitates B2B data exchange, includes 24/7 monitoring, and offers basic communication protocols like VAN or AS2. Seamless automation being at the core of GraceBlood’s philosophy, VelociLink™ Essentials even provides data integration for EDI ready back-end systems. For those businesses with a high level of data integrity (i.e. no missing DUNs or UPCs) and those comfortable onboarding their own trading partners, VelociLink™ Essentials is the ideal choice for businesses seeking a reliable and cost-effective solution to enhance their basic EDI capabilities.
  2. VelociLink™ Extended: As your business expands, so do your EDI requirements. VelociLink™ Extended includes all of the elements of Essentials but steps in to meet the growing demands by offering advanced features and functionalities like proactive exception handling, API integration capabilities and the use of code lookups and/or database queries (if required). This mid-tier level introduces enhanced integration capabilities, customizable workflows, and managed trading partner onboarding to optimize your B2B data exchange. With VelociLink™ Extended, businesses can scale their EDI processes efficiently without compromising on performance and reliability.
  3. VelociLink™ Enterprise: For enterprises with complex EDI needs, VelociLink™ Enterprise stands as the pinnacle of our Managed EDI Service. This single-tenant solution is designed to handle large-scale operations, integration to multiple back-end systems (omnichannel operations), complex data mapping (i.e. control maps), and intricate trading partner relationships (i.e. certificate binding). VelociLink™ Enterprise goes beyond basic EDI, providing comprehensive tools for advanced supply chain analytics (i.e. dashboards and order lifecycles), compliance management, and strategic decision-making. What’s more…with this level, you’ll meet periodically with your client success team to strategize how we can help you consistently achieve unparalleled efficiency and agility in your EDI and B2B processes.
