Electronic data interchange (EDI).

Heidelberg focuses strongly on electronic communication with its suppliers.

One important building block of this strategy is our Web-EDI process which can be used by our suppliers alternatively to classical EDI.

Web-EDI with our partner Seeburger as an alternative to classical EDI

Web-EDI combines the advantages of EDI with the flexibility of the internet

  • Attractive solution even for medium size suppliers, no investment on supplier-side
  • Heidelberg pays the implementing costs, the supplier pays a fee per year for using the system
  • Suppliers can send and receive data on electronic way (automatic interface on Heidelberg side)

Web-Based Collaboration in the Heidelberg Procurement Process

For the safe exchange of critical data between suppliers and Heidelberg, Heidelberg provides the web-based Portal Pool4Tool. The system facilitates the fast, safe and structured exchange of data.

The tool enables all Collaboration-users - even those working on opposite sides of the planet - to cooperate in virtual teams.

To use the tool, suppliers only need internet access.

If you are an approved Heidelberg supplier and interested in using the Pool4Tool system, please contact:
