Open Catalogue Interface (OCI)

The Pilz E-Shop supports the Open Catalogue Interface (OCI), a defined interface used for the direct transfer of product data and baskets between e-procurement systems and any other catalogues.

The interface enables a direct connection between your merchandise management system and the Pilz E-Shop. That way you have direct access to all Pilz product data within your own system. Internal approval processes are also supported by this procedure.

Catalogue exchange format BMEcat

Catalogue exchange format BMEcat

Catalogue exchange formats are used to exchange electronic product catalogues between suppliers and purchasing organisations. These help to standardise and therefore simplify your purchasing processes.

BMEcat is an XML-based standardised exchange format for transferring catalogue data, including individual prices and technical details. By structuring the data, product data is not only much easier to exchange but can also be used for a variety of output media and purposes, such as print or Internet for example.

Pilz supports standard BMEcat or individual CSV/Excel-based derivatives.
