The extranet – the bridge to your business partners

The extranet – the bridge to your business partners


What is an extranet?


With an extranet, companies can share information with business partners, such as suppliers and customers, with ease. Essentially, the extranet is an extension of the intranet. Password-protected access can be provided to a specific group of external users.
Extranets facilitate an efficient and even cross-company exchange of data. That’s why they’re a good means of accelerating communication along the supply chain.

An extranet can be implemented in various ways.

Direct communication with a supplier or customer portal


The extranet is your private and secure platform for working together with customers, suppliers and partners.
Here, virtual collaboration takes place in work groups. Messages, files and other work-related information is shared. Ideas and mutual projects are developed. The extranet is a direct line between business partners.
This exchange facilitates the creation of improved products – such as if customers can configure these precisely according to their requirements in the customer portal. This results in an improved experience for the customers.

Possible applications for extranets:
  • Customer portal
  • Supplier portal
  • Partner portal
  • Event portal
