More than 20 years ago, we developed and implemented viable e-procurement systems with key customers. Since then, providing individualized, customer-specific electronic data interchange solutions has become one of our specialties. The very tangible efficiencies realized in the e-procurement process give our customers more freedom to concentrate on their core-businesses.
We see our role in adding value to our customer’s supply chain. Reductions in costs are essential, but improvements in quality, keeping transactions transparent and up-to-date and ensuring maximum reliability in the planning process are equally crucial.
We provide a complete e-business supply chain management system; determination of the IT infrastructure with our system partner, definition of specific data to be transmitted, definition of E-Procurement requirements (EDIFACT, Online-catalogue, electronic Marketplace) and determination of billing procedures (E-Invoicing, etc). Utilizations of electronic document transfers with XCBL, XML Open Trans, CSV and EDI, enables our customers to significantly streamline their entire procurement process.
We offer customer-specific electronic product catalogues that are integrated in customers’ data systems and serviced via Intranet. Commercial customers have easy access to our B2B-Online Shop which has more then 1.8 million products electronically maintained and updated in our extensive product database. Our shop was specifically designed to be user-friendly and provides specifications, product images, inventory and pricing on both stock and no-stock items. This information is available in a variety of data formats based on industry standards such as BMEcat, ecl@ss, Structure, Datanorm, Eldanorm or ETIM. For industrial customers with SAP software-based e-systems, we offer a direct link via Open-Catalog Interface.
