LET´S WORK TOGETHER.   Welcome to HAHN+KOLB Germany

OCI/PUNCHOUT – The integrated data interface

As a HAHN+KOLB customer, not only do you have the chance to order in our online shop, but you can also transmit the electronic data directly from our online shop to your ERP (resource planning) system or your e-procurement platform – of course, with all product information, availabilities and your individual prices.

Once the interface has been set up, you can easily access our online shop from your ERP system, add the desired articles to your basket and transmit these incredibly easily to your system or platform with just a click via OCI/PunchOut.

The filled shopping basket arrives in your system in real time, is saved there and can then run through your internal approval processes before final submission as an order to HAHN+KOLB via EDI. This significantly simplifies your procurement processes, reduces your administrative workload and helps you save time and costs.

All you need is a suitable resource planning (ERP) system or e-procurement platform.

 

The difference between OCI and PunchOut

OCI and PunchOut are the two most common standard interfaces for transferring data from the online shop to an external ERP system or to an e-procurement platform. Both variants offer similar functionalities.

OCI

OCI is a standard SAP interface. If your resource planning system is an SAP system, the OCI interface will enable you to access the HAHN+KOLB online shop directly. There, you can fill the basket with the desired products and transmit the product data to your SAP system with just one click to generate the final order there.

PUNCHOUT

PunchOut is a cXML interface that was introduced by the e-procurement platform SAP-ARIBA and is supported by most platforms. It is here that the transmission from your procurement platform to the HAHN+KOLB takes place. You can fill the shopping basket as usual and transmit this to your procurement platform via PunchOut.
