NORCROSS, Ga.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--EasyLink Services International Corporation ("EasyLink" or
"Company") (NasdaqCM: ESIC, www.easylink.com), a global provider of comprehensive messaging services and
e-commerce solutions, today announced Standard Life, a leading asset management company operating across the
globe, has implemented EasyLink’s FTS (File Transfer System) Enterprise Gateway solution to manage its high
volume EDI transactions.
Standard Life experienced significant year on year growth of EDI data that could no longer be supported by their
existing legacy systems in addition to the high cost specialist skills needed to support it. HMRC (Her Majesty’s
Revenue and Customs) end of financial year submissions/approval process, in the United Kingdom, presented the
sense of urgency required to implement a solution capable of delivering high volumes of EDI transactions in
significantly 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. In addition, the new platform supported expansion of Standard Life’s IFA
(Independent Financial Advisors) network, providing HMRC compliance, with minimal support effort.”
