St Paul Software, St Paul, Minnesota, has acquired EDI Solutions, Bloomington, Minnesota, a subsidiary of Maersk Data USA Inc. St Paul makes a suite of high-capacity Electronic Data Interchange translation and management tools that run under most versions of Unix. St Paul Software bought EDI to merge some of the company’s technology and communications tools into its own offerings. St Paul Software’s suite, which goes by the name spEDI*EClipse, is presently in alpha release and will launch in April 1996. It consists of spEDI*tran, which converts Electronic Data Interchange documents into users’ existing applications, and converts outbound application data into Electronic Data Interchange-formatted data; spEDI*map, a graphical user interface mapping tool that creates maps for converting data from one format to another; spEDI*exec, which enables control of the scheduled and event-driven flow of documents in multi-application environments; spEDI*stat, which maintains a database of processes, documents and files; spEDI*delivery, which configures and monitors electronic mail over an enterprise; and spEDI*fax for connecting to non-Electronic Data Interchange systems. These tools cost from $2,000 to $100,000 depending on the configuration.
