Industrial Extranet Solutions

An extranet is a closed online service that utilizes internet technology for communication between a company and its customers or business partners. We develop extranet services to meet both the operational and communicative needs of industrial companies, which may include:

Product Information Management and Sharing

Product Information Management and Sharing is a challenge when dealing with a large number of products, components, or any other items. A centralized data repository serving B2B end-users, distributors, suppliers, and other partners frees up resources for more productive work, increases sales, and fosters customer loyalty.

Technical Support for Production

Increase sales and enable additional sales through online orders or integrations. We create new digital sales channels and facilitate communication. Through integrations, customers can view inventory levels and place orders directly from their own system.

Outsourcing of Maintenance and Support Tasks

Tasks related to outsourcing maintenance and support activities, such as assigning and ordering tasks and real-time tracking of progress, are also examples of manufacturing industry operations that can be significantly enhanced through the use of an extranet.

Do you have an idea for your own extranet?
