EDI – how you can get connected

When it comes to EDI options we are very compatible and flexible: we can use GHX, GSG, HBS or Medical Columbus. Other platforms can be set up by prior arrangement.

  1. Choose your software platform for future ordering.
  2. After checking we enter your master data in our system.
  3. Ready! From now on you receive all documentation in electronic form.

Electronic exchange of master and catalogue data

Our products are classified to e-class. We use the current eClass version, which has been agreed in the eStandard workshop, with properties for all products,  

It is possible to export master data in csv/xls or GS1 XML format. This ensures that you always have complete up-to-date purchasing information.

Material for your website

On request we will be glad to provide you with pictures and product data for our products to support your marketing activities. 

Shaping the digital future

pfm medical is active in important e-commerce forums like GS1 Healthcare and, within Germany, e-Class e.V. and the BVMed e-standards group. This means we can start preparing today for tomorrow’s standards.
