Rite Aid supports AS2 communications protocol on a selective and strategic basis. It also utilizes OpenText GXS AS2 Managed Services to support some of those selective trading relations. All requests for AS2 must be approved in advance by the EDI/B2B Department and will only be implemented based upon that review and approval process.
Developed by EDIINT, AS2 is an industry-sanctioned protocol that enables companies to transmit EDI and XML data over the Internet in a secure and reliable fashion. The AS2 standard defines an envelope for data that enables it to be sent over the Internet utilizing the HTTP protocol. AS2 can handle any kind of document but is ideally suited to the kind of transactions that have traditionally made up the bulk of EDI exchanges. Connecting to OpenText GXS via AS2 is simple – send documents to OpenText GXS and receive return documents via the AS2 protocol in real time.
