Jobisez LLC Announces JZNET

Coming soon, the Jobisez Network will give companies the opportunity to transfer data to other organizations for 1 cent per kilo-character.

JZNET is creating a platform to exchange EDI and non-EDI data from one company to another.  JZNET will be using preexisting services that are used by millions of users.  Its backbone is also used by over 95% of the Fortune 500 companies.  These preexisting services are cloud based storage that allow files to be shared.  Using cloud based storage facilities greatly reduces the pricing that a normal "EDI VAN" would charge.

Jobisez LLC will be charging one cent per kilo-character (KC).  There will be three (3) types of billing structures, they are...
1.  Sender pays 1 cent per KC.
2.  One Party pays 1 cent per KC (both sending and receiving).
3.  Each Party pays .5 cents per KC.

There will also be a monthly fee of $10 per mailbox; and they will be a fee of $1 per month for each trading relationship.  (Other fees may be applied that have not been determined yet.)

No need for a traditional VAN.  Using the preexisting cloud-based service, a VAN is not needed to transfer data from one organization to another.  This also helps reduce the cost.

The JZNET will also have a web based application that will be used by the users to view a history of which files and transactions have been processed.

If you are interested in JZNET's 1 cent per KC, please leave comments below.  Jobisez will also be creating more blog entries informing you of our progress.

EDI VAN Annual Budget

Many companies are planning their next year's annual budget soon.  This is a good time to revisit your current EDI VAN bills and determine if you are paying too much.  For those that are paying too much, you might be able to shave some cents off each KC. 

Some "cents" you say.  Sure!  Remember that a KC (Kilo-Character) is 1000 characters.  If you are exchanging 10,000 KCs a month at 10 cents per KC, that is a total bill of $1000/mo.  Trimming that down to 8 cents per KC would lower your bill to $800/mo.  Which is a saving of $2400 a year. 

Ah, now does it make sense? 

Some companies also offer tiered pricing.  This means, the more data you exchange, the lower the price per KC.  If you are interested in lowering your VAN bill, then fill-out the Jobisez EDI VAN form to find out what you could be paying per KC.  The form will ask only for your Name, Email Address and Number of KCs traded last month. 

After entering this information, you will receive an email stating the cost per KC and the advantages you would get from a tiered-1 VAN.  If you like the price, then you will receive an Agreement and we can get the ball rolling. 

Lowering your VAN bill is one of the easier things you can do to meet your company's budget constraints.
