The Würth Group is the global market leader in developing, manufacturing and selling assembly and fastening materials. The Würth Group currently consists of over 400 companies in more than 80 countries. Around 4 million customers draw on its product range of around 125,000 products to cover their needs. They research and order these products through the renowned Würth sales force, but are increasingly using electronic procurement channels for product information and purchasing.
In order to meet the diverse requirements of its changing business model, Würth IT operates the SEEBURGER BIS platform in its own data centre in Niedernhall-Waldzimmern, Germany. What began 15 years ago with the integration of local B2B customers has been expanded over time to connect international business partners and new digital sales channels, as well as a variety of technically complex integration scenarios.
The SEEBURGER BIS platform supports sales & distribution activities by integrating:

From EDI to API and from master data to transactional data: Würth uses BIS for many purposes and use cases. Thanks to the wide range of capabilities on BIS, we can face any integration requirements with confidence.
Markus Worsch, Team Lead E-Business, Würth Industrie Service GmbH & Co. KG
Würth‘s skilled IT team uses the versatile BIS platform for automated connections to business partners through various channels, technologies and services. They use the platform’s EDI, API, MFT and IoT capabilities for everything from B2B and cloud integration to integrating smart vending machines. BIS is provisioned both as a fully-managed service and as an infrastructure.
Following scenarios support the Würth business model:
Vending machines, known as ORSYmats, are connected to an ERP system via the SEEBURGER Business Integration Suite (BIS) to automate stock replenishment
SEEBURGER Business Integration Suite is used for all integration needs at the Würth Group
Würth’s Core IT team uses BIS to automate, standardize and manage group-wide sales to more than 10,000 business partners worldwide.
Provided as a fully managed service, administered by the Würth IT teams at locations in China, India and the USA, and provisioned to the other Würth Group companies as software-as-a-service (SaaS), who manage their own logical BIS systems.
The BIS Community Management App is available as a service to make B2B onboarding even easier.
Sending individualized product catalogues is not only costly and complex, it isalso imperative that the individually negotiated prices stay confidential.
Würth uses MFT to dynamically compile, retrieve and send product catalogues tailored to the customer. This can be done in any format, efficiently zipped, securely sent and GDPR-compliant.
Würth uses APIs to integrate the online procurement platforms of their key accounts in real time. Operated by the client company itself, these portals include SAP Ariba, Coupa, Meplato and others.
Würth also provisions an API for price queries. This means customers can integrate 125,000 products and their market prices, discounts and conditions into their systems and order these.
APIs enable direct and immediate data exchange in self-service.
If a company needs to procure production materials at irregular intervals, this often involves an enormous amount of time and effort. In order to minimize this workload, Würth has set up a number of smart vending machines. Known as an ORSYmat, or – for a rack – an ORSYregal, production workers can immediately retrieve any of the items shown on the screen. These are then automatically reordered through BIS.
This IoT integration saves time and increases productivity.
With BIS, we have a forward-looking, permanently up-to-date, secure and compliant technology solution. The benefits are greater synergies in IT operations and lower costs of ownership.
