The back-end system be.ENERGISED provides a high degree of automation for billing operations. In order to deliver this data to downstream systems in an automated way, be.ENERGISED also provides various interfaces.
The connection to the be.ENERGISED downstream ERP and accounting systems can be accomplished in different ways:
Application programming interface (API)
Be.ENERGISED provides a standardized API interface, which provides a complete and system-based connection (pull method) for downstream systems. The queries can be queried via RESTful Services through the ERP system. This helps ensure data integrity and transaction security.
Automated data export
be.ENERGISED enables the automated export of CSV and XML files, which can contain charging operations data, but also invoice data records. In addition, billing data can be transferred as accounting records to third-party systems.
The data transmission to the back-end systems can either be carried out via a HTTP communication link through the RESTful services, but can also be accomplished through an automated process using the following transfer services:
- SCP/ S-FTP
- OFTP2 (to ensure transaction-based data exports)
The integration of different interfaces is usually coordinated with the has.to.be project team and implemented in an appropriate integration process on the part of the client.
