Web­Ser­vice Data­Ex­pert®

Process com­mu­ni­ca­tion

On­ly IGH mem­bers can pro­vide a Data­Ex­pert®Web­Ser­vice for their cus­tomers. All cus­tomers of IGH mem­bers can then com­mu­ni­cate on­line with their sup­pli­ers di­rect­ly from their pro­cess­ing ap­pli­ca­tions. Process­es used are ikk (in­di­vid­ual cus­tomer con­di­tions), of­fers, or­ders up to in­voic­es.

Com­mu­ni­ca­tion with Web­Ser­vices

Elec­tron­ic com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­tween sup­pli­ers and cus­tomers takes place di­rect­ly via Data­Ex­pert®. Data­Ex­pert® takes over - in the sense of an "elec­tron­ic post­man" - the stan­dard­ised trans­port of process da­ta be­tween the cus­tomers of the IGH mem­bers (in­staller - deal­er - man­u­fac­tur­er).

Data­Ex­pert® checks the da­ta struc­ture and da­ta for­mats ac­cord­ing to pre­cise­ly spec­i­fied rules on the part of the client and al­so en­sures the cor­rect trans­mis­sion of the process da­ta. Be­fore trans­mis­sion, Data­Ex­pert® checks whether both the sender and the re­cip­i­ent agree to an ex­change or are au­tho­rised to do so.

The in­te­gra­tion of the process da­ta (en­quiries, of­fers, or­ders, etc.) in­to the user ap­pli­ca­tions (ERP) must be re­alised by the re­spec­tive part­ners or by the pro­gramme providers.

B2B process ex­change

For in­ter­est­ed IGH mem­bers, IGH arranges a V-Serv­er with a part­ner provider. This on­ly in­curs low in­stal­la­tion costs and a month­ly user fee.
