Software as a Service
For purchasing solutions the trend is undeniably going in the direction of cloud computing and SaaS solutions (Software as a Service). About 90% of the new purchasing applications on the market include SaaS offerings. As a pioneer of eProcurement POOL4TOOL was designed from the beginning as a SaaS solution, unlike our competitors who first offered an application. POOL4TOOL, in its early stages in 2000, was the only provider in the market who payed attention to the cloud concept. Similarly, the modular design of the solution shows the innovation of the company. Our tested and certified product portfolio is based on a modern system infrastructure that guarantees the highest data-speed available.

Maximum Data Speeds - Worldwide
In 2008 due to the large number of international users and the increasing dynamism of the contents of POOL4TOOL we connected the application to the globally distributed server network, Akamai. The dynamic IP routing and caching enables for a higher speed of data transmission as well as faster downloading of online content. Therefore we ensure efficient transmission of content - even with high data traffic.
