Always up-to-date: PHONONET collects and verifies the product update messages from associated record companies. These gathered change notices are then provided to all connected retailers on a daily basis.

This ensures a low-cost, fast and faultless order processing.
Simplification: Who provides which products? Record retailers no longer need to care for this! They can create an order list in the digital order book at almost every position within the programm by activating single items and chosing the desired quantity. This order list might then be sorted, completed or shortened and finally be converted by command to a concrete order. By this retailers always have a perfect survey of their orders.
The mapping to distributors happens automatically.
