Many companies are sending increasing amounts of information to their customers and suppliers in digital form. If this electronic exchange of information is to function, both sides must ‘speak the same language’. This is ensured by e-business standards, which lay down data formats and rules for digital communication. PROZEUS enables small and medium-sized enterprises to implement e-business applications independently.

The practice

PROZEUS sees itself as a central point of contact for companies with up to 500 employees from the industrial, consumer goods and retail sectors. PROZEUS offers well-founded, independent and free information - via checklists, guidelines, practical examples, profitability studies and a service provider database. Interested entrepreneurs can put together an individual package from the practice-oriented range of information on the interactive website www.PROZEUS.de.


The Institut der deutschen Wirtschaft Köln Consult GmbH realizes PROZEUS together with GS1 Germany - known for standards and services around the barcode. The eBusiness initiative was funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economics from 2003 to 2012.
