Benefits of having your own portal

asknet procurement portals are tailored to academic requirements and processes

Seamlessly integrated

Thanks to a range of interfaces, our portals can be seamlessly integrated into your systems and processes

 ERP systems

Our portals can be easily integrated into ordering systems such as SAP. This allows your buyers to jump directly from your sourcing system to the asknet procurement portal and use all the functions there without leaving the procurement process


 SAM systems

With the Transceiver, asknet provides a data export that allows you to conveniently import the data of your software assets from the asknet Procurement Portal into your SAM system.


 Identity providers

asknet procurement portals can be connected to various identity providers such as Shibboleth and can thus be integrated with existing authentication systems.
