active logistics AG open their product portfolio and offer individual system functions and software modules from the entire product family via Web services and a so-called application programming Interface (API) solution in the future. This includes, among other things, services for price calculation, clearing, Track & Trace or KPI queries.

The digitisation specialist for business processes and software thus takes a look at the complete supply chain of his customers. The aim is to digitise the entire value chain and thus make it automated and transparent. “Our API solution provides selected system features for use by other systems and applications, enabling customers to deploy various application features and cloud services in real-time into their own systems, such as a Transport Management System (TMS), “explains Benjamin Isak, head of EDI development, at the active logistics solution center in Niederaula. “You use our web services precisely in the areas where you see a corresponding need”, says Heiko Foltys from the active logistics solution center.

“The customer can use our web services to complement his software applications, which he uses for the daily work or for his customers, and thus expand his own offer.” – Benjamin Isak


Active API as the basis

The software specialists can also connect and harmonize heterogeneous customer and third-party systems via the API solution. “For example, specially programmed software applications from customer A with an SAP standard solution of his business partner”.

“Active API is the basis on which we link our WebServices with customer requirements”-Heiko Foltys.


Pay Per Use

The billing is simple and flexible. It offers several models and is based on the pay-per-use principle. Customers pay either only for the number of API accesses or, for example, the data volume being routed. The customer, if desired, benefits from continuous further development of the individual service functions by active logistics AG and can integrate new functionalities easily and quickly into their own applications if required.
