No. There is no software required. Tungsten provides an easy-to-use solution. Instead of mandating data standards, Tungsten’s ANY-TO-ANY DATA FORMATTING capability accepts invoices in any format and any file structure.
EDI and XML are just data formats as far as Tungsten Network is concerned; therefore you can use this preferred format to deliver the data to Tungsten Network if you choose to use the Integrated Solution. Applied Materials will not take any electronic data directly from suppliers as we take a single consolidated invoice file from Tungsten Network, which will contain invoices from all of our suppliers.
Web form suppliers can submit PTN in the delivery note field on the web form. Integrated suppliers should discuss PTN with the Tungsten Network sales representative during technical enrolment.
No, the Tungsten Network ensures that Applied Materials receives the data you send in a format that will upload to our accounting software and, where applicable, match to a goods receipt record. Offering Applied Materials an image of the invoice or an option to download the data in a fixed format does not satisfy Applied Materials business processes or requirements.
Please speak with your Tungsten representative regarding other solutions available.
Yes. Once you are subscribed to the Tungsten Network, it can enable you to send electronic invoices to any other customers that are members of the network.

When you are ready to use your new software, simply advise Tungsten Network of the changes to data output and they will make the necessary changes to the network, ensuring a smooth transition and uninterrupted invoice delivery.
