Direct connection to the inventory management of our customers
Cost savings One-time installation, quick transmission of orders
Planning reliability Automated order confirmations
Time saving No multiple entry of order data
Over OPTIBELT ConNect, we offer our business partners the possibility to exchange business documents from system to system. In the process, two types of data transfer can be distinguished. You have the possibility of sending orders using a CSV file. All necessary information, such as order number, dispatch route, delivery address, customer article number, quantity and date of delivery are contained within the CSV file.
The CSV file is automatically converted into a XML file in OpenTrans format by a software to be installed. This is then sent to OPTIBELT over the Internet and processed. The CSV format has the advantage that the file is small, reliable and simple to run.
As a further alternative, you can send us all necessary order information as an XML file. An XML file is somewhat more comprehensive and is sent to OPTIBELT’s sever by HTTP post or as an SOAP message. The XML format has the positive effect that no installation is required for a transmission of this kind.
The most important advantages to OPTIBELT ConNect are:
From system to system
Quick and simple order transmission
Elimination of paper documents by means of electronic transmission
Little work effort after one-time set up
Order confirmations as well as invoicing in both formats are sent directly to your inventory control system by OPTIBELT. Thereby, you can choose if we should send you the data as a PDF CSV or an XML file.
With a connection over OPTIBELT ConNect, you also have the possibility to make order status enquiries online. You will find this at the menu item “Order status” in the log-in area under "My access" options. There, it is not only possible to enquire on your current orders, but also to look at deliveries which have already been sent.
