Establish an ERP/SRM connection
By using data links between systems, many organizations can handle purchasing processes more efficiently. The linking is done via a so-called OCI (Open Cataloque Interface). An OCI service makes it possible to order from a supplier via a special link within your own ERP package. The authorization and processing of invoices can also be handled automatically in this way, via your own ERP package.
Ordering with OCI at Topfruit.nl
Topfruit.nl has developed OCI links which make it possible to link our web shops and communicate with an external OCI service or ERP package of our clients. By using this link, the client orders directly in the Topfruit.nl webshops via his own purchasing system.
Examples of already linked environments are ProActive, T-Blox and Leonardo. All ERP systems that have an OCI module can be linked.
How does it work?
To further clarify the application, here is an overview::
- The buyer logs into his own purchasing system and clicks on the link to Topfruit.nl's web shop. You are automatically logged into our webshop.
- The buyer chooses a desired product and fills in the desired details.
- After placing the order or after logging out, the buyer returns to the OCI environment and can resume other activities in this system. The order can go through any established authorization steps.
- After possible approval, the order is reported back to the webshop and automatically placed with Topfruit.nl, together with a unique order number.
- When the order is invoiced digitally, the unique order number is automatically matched in the own OCI environment and booked in the right place.
Benefits of an OCI link with Topfruit.nl
The advantages of making an OCI link between your and our system are:
- No more manual actions are needed to enter or process orders in your own purchasing system.
- Placed orders become part of the own purchasing system immediately, so that there is always up-to-date insight into the commitments made.
- The authorization steps within the organization can be followed, because the work is done through the own procurement system.
- Because the NZI coding is also included in the OCI message, all orders can be booked directly and correctly.
- By means of e-billing, the order number is sent along with the invoice. This makes it possible to have an automatic match in the OCI environment.
