Catalog Web services

The catalog Web services are used to provide the customers with current product data. For this three Web services are available:

Via the Web service getCatalogInfo a list of all available catalogs can be requested. This includes all of the essential information (catalog version, validity period, country, etc.) for the implementation of an automatic update function in the respective software programs.

The Web service getSubCatalog enables the download of a client specific catalog. Via this Web service opticians can download current product catalogs of suppliers and directly take them over in the respective ERP system. Depending on the user login, the customer receives an individual catalog with the articles available to him (own brands and selective distribution).

For contact lenses there is the third Web service getBarcodes. This allows to download barcode lists that are matching the catalog.
