Connection of ERP systems via EDI interface possible

Easy connection of ERP systems via EDI interface

We connect your ERP system to the Tool-Arena and connect you with all suppliers at once. Benefit from efficient data exchange via EDI interface.

Quit double work: Simply connect your ERP system to the Tool-Arena via EDI interface and save the additional maintenance of your ERP system. Your order’s data are transferred at high speed and match exactly as an order in your system and as a purchase order in the supplier’s system. 

For SMEs, the connection via EDI interface to all suppliers is often not profitable because the order quantities with individual suppliers are not high enough. Your benefit in the Tool-Arena: A single EDI interface connects you not only to one supplier, but also with all Tool-Arena suppliers. The data transfer works in both directions – whether you enter your order in your ERP system or place it in the Tool-Arena.
