Desktop APIs

Our desktop APIs are specially designed for bidirectional data exchange with DATEV desktop apps. Authentication and authorization is managed by the app DATEV Benutzer- und Rechteverwaltung. The requirement for using these APIs is that all apps involved are in the same network (LAN). This interface is therefore especially suitable for companies that work with DATEV desktop apps themselves and wish to achieve a high level of integration with their third-party apps. These APIs are also summarized under the term "DATEVconnect" and can be found on our official DATEV Programm-DVD.

You can find an overview of which data can be exchanged with DATEVconnect in the service description.

Do you have questions about the concept, implementation or would you like personal advice? We will be happy to help you.
