AEB’s cloud-based services offer benefits such as simpler cross-enterprise collaboration and mobile access to data – so your supply chain can perform like never before. Above all, they help free up your own IT resources and slash your operating costs.
Over 15 years in the cloud
Lower IT costs
For over 15 years, businesses have relied on software running in the AEB data center and placed their trust in our cloud solutions. Today, software running in our two high-tech data centers supports the global trade and logistics processes of more than 5,000 businesses. You won’t find a more efficient platform for your AEB software.
AEB runs your software in its own ISO 27001–certified data center. The latest technology, an experienced team, state-of-the-art security architectures, redundant data backups, and tried-and-tested contingency plans ensure the security of your data and stability of your applications. We offer our customers standard 24/7 operation with an availability rate of over 99%. AEB’s data centers are located in Germany, run and monitored by our own employees. Our data centers comply with the strict specifications of Germany’s Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Obviously, we know our own software better than anyone else. That’s why we were able to tailor our data center infrastructure to the precise needs of our software and can run it there much more cost-effectively than the major cloud service providers could. The result is an unbeatable value for money. And that includes more than just the software, of course: Administration and maintenance services are all rolled into the price as well.
Another advantage of AEB having its own data center: If a problem ever does occur, we can respond quickly and are not dependent on service level agreements with other providers. Our IT and global trade specialists also take proactive measures to ensure your solutions run smoothly and are always up to date.
Our cloud services even include the monitoring of customs messages. Two dedicated open lines to the customs authorities ensure high performance – including a failover, just in case. AEB also provides a ticket number to use with the fallback procedure when the customs authority's e-customs system is down. The link to your transport partners is also centrally monitored. When changes are made in the communication with carriers or parcel companies, we act – often before you yourself learn about it.
We automatically adapt the software to reflect changes to the law – new customs requirements, modified restricted party lists, new embargo regulations, and more. Database monitoring, system monitoring, and update services are also included. This takes the burden off your IT department, so you can focus on more value-adding tasks.
