Many states have mandated that utility companies use EDI technology to send enrollments or to receive meter readings from transmission and distribution providers. However the cost of developing that technology to meet compliance in one state, let alone address inter-state transactions, is prohibitive. Many companies are increasingly seeing the benefits of outsourcing this process. DataTrans Solutions has the expertise and experience to assist with the considerable data and transaction processing capabilities required. This includes the establishment of communication channels, transaction sets, management of transmissions, trading partner support, integration with a company’s back end system, translation and mapping services, and error resolution.
Maintaining full compliance
DataTrans experience in this sector includes compliance with the following:
GISB EDM Gas Industry Standards Board Electronic Delivery Mechanism) standards require that all transaction data be exchanged in a standardized format (ANSI X12). These standards also specify the Internet communication protocol used to exchange the files electronically.

NAESB (North American Energy Standards Board).
