There is no requirement to use a VAN when using EDI.  Many companies conduct
EDI transactions over secure Internet connections with standard protocols.
I assume that the VAN is not the only reason the customer does not want to
use EDI.  

The customer's desired solution can be accomplished using a variety of COTS
packages in a fairly straightforward manner.  Shoot me an email if you need
