Covast Partners with Compaq Global Services for EDI Integration
Companies speed implementation to help bridge the gap
between EDI and XML

ATLANTA - April 1, 2002 - Covast Corporation, a provider of integration software that enables connectivity in weeks or even days, today announced a partnership with Compaq Global Services to help businesses integrate their EDI infrastructures with internal applications and Internet-based trading partner relationships. Compaq Global Services will use Covast EDI Accelerator for Microsoft BizTalk Server to help companies bridge the gap between EDI and proprietary file formats, to new standards such as XML.

"We are delighted to be working with Compaq Global Services, a leading integrator of Microsoft .NET solutions, who shares our commitment to fast implementation," said Jim Norton, executive vice president and general manager of Covast Corporation. "Together, we can get customers up and running in weeks, rather than months. Customers can quickly begin pursuing new collaborative commerce opportunities, and migrate to XML at a pace that best suits their environment."

Using Covast EDI Accelerator for Microsoft BizTalk Server, companies can rapidly integrate their supply chains regardless of systems or file structures. They can maintain advanced EDI capabilities such as partner-specific outbound document batching, rigorous control number management, and support for emerging Internet-based commerce standards such as AS1 and AS2.

Covast EDI Accelerator for BizTalk Server can receive EDI and other document formats from various protocol transports, including Value Added Networks (VANs), and convert them to XML documents. Covast EDI Accelerator can also transform outbound XML documents into the desired format and send via VANs and other transport protocols.
