BMEcat at LAPP

For the fastest overview: With the standardised electronic BMEcat, you can integrate the LAPP catalogue into your inventory management system and access all data.

With BMEcat, the German Association for Materials Management, Purchasing and Logistics (BME) has set a standard for electronic catalogues. This enables supplier catalogues to be integrated directly into numerous inventory management systems. BMEcat saves you laboriously searching through thick catalogues, and you will have all of our data directly on your system.

LAPP offers you catalogues in version 1.2 or 2.0 (2005). BMEcat can be combined with various classifications.

In conjunction with EDI, you can order from LAPP directly from your system or order platform.
