The Best of both worlds
SOFTZOLL’S FULL SERVICE HOSTING

As an alternative to the traditional in-house solution and to the classic ASP outsourcing operation, Softzoll offers full service hosting. In this way, the advantages of both worlds are combined:

We provide a dedicated EDI system for our customers in our professional data processing center in Berlin.

This system is fully managed by our experienced service team in Berlin. Our staff operate the system, set up the communication paths chosen (AS2, X400, OFTP2, FTP/sFTP, e-mail, etc.) and implement new partners and business processes in your personal EDI system in our data processing center.

Only one connection is required in order to integrate your external EDI system in our data processing center in Berlin. This connection is completed using a communication channel and tool of your choice (normally FTP/sFTP, AS2, https). On request, this communication channel can also be set up via VPN Tunnel to meet the highest security demands. In practice, this approach means that you exchange only ERP data via a dedicated channel; all diversification takes place inside the data processing center. This frees up Softzoll customers and their IT departments to focus on their core tasks—mapping modern business processes in the ERP system in order to supply various EDI partners with high quality data or process them internally.

On request, Softzoll is happy to supply a free client to control automated data exchange with the data processing center.
This client provides a series of features that ensure secure document interchange transactions. When uploading or downloading data to and from the appropriate server in Berlin, the client conveys the exact file size over a special protocol in each transmission (Checksum). The client deletes the equivalent file on the server or on the local system only when the complete upload or download is concluded. In this way, the greatest possible transaction security is provided: in the event of a break in transmission, the file transmission is immediately repeated automatically. To do this, the client has a heartbeat function at its disposal that is monitored by the corresponding server. If there is no notification of regular operational capability, an error message is automatically generated and sent to the Softzolll support team, who can then react in an appropriate way.

The parameters of this system can be customized to your needs. Monitor cycles, archiving intervals, and prioritization of partners and business processes are adjusted individually to suit your preferences. There are no restrictions on account of any global frameworks.

Your advantages at a glance

You do not have to purchase any software, and there are no license or maintenance fees.

You will simply be asked to pay a small fixed sum for setting up your personal EDI system in the Softzoll data processing center.

Eine Portierung des EDI-Systems in die interne IT-Landschaft Ihres Unternehmens ist bei Erwerb einer entsprechenden Lizenz jederzeit möglich (Windows oder Linux).

Your IT department can devote its full attention to its core tasks.

Your data are stored in a closed area on German territory, with all associated advantages, and are kept strictly separate from all other customers.

We can archive your EDI data and store them for years (EDI transactions, corresponding ERP files and communication protocols, PDF files where applicable). Alternatively, we can supply your own internal archiving system with all relevant information and a manufacturer-specific index file.

You benefit from a high level of customization to your needs, without incurring the normal market costs for such services.

OUR STRATEGY: FINDING THE BEST SOLUTION FOR EACH OF YOUR REQUIREMENTS. OR ALREADY HAVE THEM ON HAND. STANDARDIZING THIS SOLUTION AND PROVIDING IT IN OUR PORTFOLIO. AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE. AS AFFORDABLY AS POSSIBLE.
