Wellogix adds AS2 support to PIDX

Wal-Mart e-commerce protocol is now a PIDX standard and available to small business users.

Upstream e-commerce solution provider Wellogix has teamed with Cleo Communications to extend the widely used Applicability Statement 2 (AS2) into the Oil and Gas Industry. Since its adoption by Wal-Mart in 2002, AS2 has become a dominant protocol for secure e-commerce transactions. AS2 has been adopted by the API’s Petroleum Industry Data Exchange (PIDX) committee on electronic business in oil and gas (OITJ Vol. 10 N° 6).


Cleo’s interfaces add AS2 support to Wellogix’ PIDX Small Business Adaptor (SBA), enabling smaller suppliers to deliver invoices and supporting materials directly to the Wellogix Complex Services Management (CSM ) suite. Wellogix director Tim Morgan said, ‘This agreement establishes a game-changing benchmark for PIDX integrations.’


Cleo’s software has been certified for AS2, AS3, and ebXML Messaging Service (ebMS) by the Drummond Goup. Cleo’s VersaLex communications package offers pre-configured connections to many major trading networks.
