System to System connectivity
The most efficient way to exchange data between two Enterprise Resource Planning Systems (ERP) is a system integrated solution. BASF realizes this kind of connection with the service provider Elemica. This connection serves as an electronic hub for the chemical industry and focuses on processing orders and subsequent messages. By defining global standards, Enterprise Resource Planning systems, such as SAP on customers’ and sellers’ side, can be linked through Elemica via a shared “electronic language”. A single standardized and secure connection to Elemica can replace a large number of individual connections between companies. More than 2,500 customers and suppliers currently benefit from the solutions offered by Elemica.
If you are not connected to Elemica yet or if you use a different service provider but would like to exchange data with BASF through a system integrated solution, please contact us. We will find a way to get the systems connected.
