The Wirtschafts-Compass API offers a variety of additional integration options based on standardized interfaces. Expand your software solutions (SAP, Microsoft Dynamics, ...) quickly and easily.
Business management & contract management
Information on persons authorised to sign and about ownership structures (e.g. beneficial owners or shareholdings) facilitate your work.
Wirtschafts-Compass API is your added value in every-day business, from issuing accurate invoices to the management of accounts payable and receivable.
Controlling & risk management
Trust is good, control is better. The Wirtschafts-Compass API provides balance sheet figures, up-to-date information about liquidity and insolvencies. Additionally: optional access to original documents (articles of association, etc.).
Who are the right partners? Wirtschafts-Compass API assists you with reviewing compliance requirements and assessing your suppliers and partners.
Our API allows a direct connection of integrated solutions to all ERP or CRM systems such as BMD, Mesonic or international manufacturers (Microsoft, SAP, etc.), as well as KYC applications, compliance and risk applications.
Up-to-date and historical official excerpts from the Business Register, the Beneficial Owners Register, the Central Register of Residents and many more warrant legal certainty, build trust and are binding.
Search and performance
Search for all entrepreneurs by name, register number (e.g. Business Register number, VAT number, ZVR [Central Register of Associations] number or the like) structured, optimised search results and fast response times.
We process an extensive range of data from official sources to generate clear objects. Each of those objects includes an ID by means of which you may retrieve clear information from our services.
Cost optimisation with archiving
Your retrievals of official documents, excerpts and other documents will be stored in the archive and may be retrieved again free of charge at any time.
Maintenance of external interfaces
We integrate and maintain external interfaces of the Business Register, Land Register, Beneficial Owners Register and the like and provide you with standardised services.
