Haystack Hooks Web Services
Augment existing component data using XML and standard transport protocols with parts and logistics data from the US Federal Supply Catalog.
Haystack Hooks connects your parts and logistics database and management tools to the information contained in IHS Haystack Gold®. Haystack Hooks offers direct access to detailed, continuously updated product data associated with the millions of items listed in the US Federal Supply Catalog and more than 40 US Army, Navy, Air Force and related commercial databases.
With Haystack Hooks, predefined part and logistics data is accessible on demand, using XML communication in HTTP via a secure connection to the Haystack Gold® web portal.
Organizations can select as little or as much of the data as they need and integrate it with their internal systems for access via the in-house applications they currently use. You provide the necessary information such as National Stock Number (NSN), National Item Identification Number (NIIN), part number, Commercial and Government Entity (CAGE) code or vendor name, and Haystack Hooks provides the part information you need.
