Müller GmbH has many small handicraft businesses as customers, however, there are some large companies as well which purchase their technical products in large numbers.

Auto AG, a good customer of Müller, has now requested that Müller sends a BMEcat catalogue every month with its current assortment in order to integrate it into the purchasing environment of Auto AG.

Moreover, the sales manager asked the managing director several times already whether the company would not want to offer the assortment on a market place in the Internet.


All products which have been registered in the Product Information Management system once can be exported without a lot of effort in an electronic catalogue, such as in BMEcat format. For this purpose, the contents of the database is written by means of mapping (an allocation) into the target fields of the requested output format or dialect.

By ConnectPro orders which have been carried out by a purchasing system or a market place can be returned to the merchandise management system of Müller GmbH. All data including the invoice can be transferred paperless.
