The IGH at a glance
As an association, IGH pursues the common goals of its members. These include standards for B2B data exchange among members and their customers. But also services and products that enable and support the exchange are included in the IGH portfolio. See for yourself in the image below…
The following diagram shows the typical industry approach from planning to execution that IGH members are involved in. Click on the individual IGH products for more details.
What our members and partners say
Read here why IGH products are used.
Arbonia HVAC AG (Arbonia, Prolux, Kermi)
Everything is becoming more complex, including the HVACSE industry. IGH brings simplification to the work and data processes. This with its interfaces and other solutions.
IGH is not commercial, but represents the interests of the member companies, which largely cover the HVAC market. Almost every relevant HVAC supplier is represented with its data at IGH.
This means that they are also present in the industry solutions of the various software companies and thus directly at the workplace of planning and installing employees in the HVAC sector.
The simple provision and dissemination of data via IGH reduces our internal effort enormously.
We have been a convinced member of IGH, the Swiss Data Network, for a long time.
Geberit Vertriebs AG
- Structured and neutral article catalogue of all well-known manufacturers and dealers
- Processor, service provider and hoster of article data catalogues and software for communication
- Swiss industry standard for manufacturers, dealers, installers and planners
- Widely used solutions and established processes
- Very cost-effective and flexible
The sales catalogue only needs to be digitised once, and IGH then serves a large number of data recipients and industry software manufacturers.
For over 25 years, IGH has ensured that the electronic Hoval catalogue is distributed digitally and integrated into various solutions.
Sanitas Troesch AG
The standards set by IGH help to drive digitalisation with the high Swiss quality and promote Switzerland as a trading centre.
With the defined interfaces of IGH, we can communicate with our customers, partners and suppliers in a paperless and correspondingly efficient manner.
Security and trust are important aspects in digitalisation and thanks to IGH’s non-commercial orientation, this is guaranteed.
Meier Tobler AG
The IGH is important for us to ensure data supply in the industry and to provide a central database for this with its platforms.
As a member, we make our product data available and have the catalogues published by IGH.
This has the great advantage for us that we only have to worry about complying with IGH’s standards when creating the article master data.
The data supply and the connection to the outside, for our customers, is ensured by IGH or by the software providers.
IGH ensures that all extensions are compatible with the existing processing procedures.
Industry application provider
The implementation of the IGH interfaces ensures that the entire digital communication of the HVAC sector from the customer to the manufacturer functions without barriers.
Emerging problems or new requirements are recorded centrally, analysed and solved in cooperation with the software providers. This ensures the continuous further development of the interfaces.
Planner and installer
Customers of the IGH members
Through the IGH interfaces, which are implemented in the industry software, negotiated customer prices can flow directly into the calculation in addition to the product data. At the same time, the administration process (from the offer to the order to the invoice) is completely digitalised. This leads to a significantly higher added value in the business.
suissetec sees itself as the representative of planners and installers at IGH and is committed to what has been written above.
With the KG-Web web application, we also make it easy for IGH members to submit their product data to suissetec via the IGH catalogue.
