eefacta Cloud API

The eefacta Cloud API provides easy access to support tools in the cloud during the development phase and ensures data integrity and data consistency in the production environment.

 Cloud Services, Enterprise Solutions

Targeting and features

The eefacta Cloud API is used in three different scenarios.

  1. It is a key to the data integrity and data consistency of the eefacta Server and eefacta Hub. Both products use the eefacta Cloud API to access various services and functionality.
  2. It is a cloud support for development work for our partners and ERP providers. Users can create valid documents via the Cloud API or validate business documents they create in their own ERP system.
  3. Users can send documents from their ERP systems via the Cloud API to document exchange networks.

Further information


Pricing model is flexible. Users can select subscription model or prepaid variable cost models for the development phase and production phase (send only).

Subscription service is available as long as subscription is in place. Prepaid service is available for fixed time and transaction volume.

Part of the eefacta Cloud API is accessible via eefacta Hub. We recommend using eefacta Hub when receiving electronic documents, when volumes are low or there is a requirement for tracking, tracing or archiving.

Sending through eefacta Cloud API is based on a simple state machine, which only sends compliant documents to receivers. Documents can also be validated independently. Customers must maintain their own tracking logs and message states based on interaction with the service. 

Customers looking for complete messaging services with message logs, validations and receiving of messages should implement against the eefacta Web and eefacta Server messaging model.
