Communication

Together with the supplier, the buying company decides which documents are exchanged on which communication base in which format.

The transmission of the documents to the supplier may use various communication channels. Select from the following.

Document by e-mail

The document is represented in a human-readable form via e-mail. The e-mail is sent to a previously defined e-mail address. This type of transmission does not permit any automated processing.

SMTP delivery

Documents are sent by e-mail to a mail address of the supplier. The document in the desired format is appended to the e-mail. In the other direction, the supplier sends his original documents to a defined mail address of the DIG via e-mail.

SMTP via POP3 Mailbox

The documents are readied for the supplier on the server of the supplier. The supplier can request the document via POP3 (same as a private e-mail account that is called through Outlook). In the other direction, the original documents from the supplier are sent to a defined mail address of the DIG.

FTP delivery

Documents are transferred from DIG active to the supplier's FTP server and deposited there in a defined folder with defined name. In the other direction, the original documents are collected by DIG on the FTP server of the supplier.

FTP request via Mailbox

The documents are deposited on the DIG FTP server and subsequently collected by the supplier using FTP. In the other direction, the supplier sends his original documents to the FTP server of the DIG.

HTTP/S delivery with SAP Business Connector method

The documents are sent to the DIG via HTTP/S post and the URL of the supplier is sent. In the other direction, the supplier sends the original documents to the defined DIG URL using HTTP/S. The HTTP/S method needs to be compatible with the SAP Business Connector.

If one of the communication channels such as SMTP sending, FTP sending or HTTP/S sending is selected with the SAP Business Connector method, you must provide us with the technical information relevant to the selected communication channel (login, pw, url, ip etc.).
