Rite Aid realizes that trading partners are faced with multiple requirements for the exchange of electronic transactions. In order to streamline the process and provide timely response in the trading of transactions, Rite Aid and OpenText GXS initiated an alliance program to develop and implement select solutions to support the Rite Aid EDI/B2B Program. The end goal is greater interoperability, business process support, real-time interactions, and more agile and secure transactions.
All OpenText GXS hosted and network-based products are built on a cloud-based integration platform―the OpenText GXS Trading Grid®. The Grid is the world’s largest electronic business community and enables the real-time flow of information between businesses regardless of technical capability, standards preference, spoken language or geographic location.
