More than a database

ToolsUnited is a managed service

The provision of tool data in a standardized way requires the collaboration the tool vendors, the CAM-systems and the tool users. The challenge lies in insufficiently specified standards and the resulting room for interpretation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is the owner of the data provided by ToolsUnited?

The IP of the tool design including the data provided remain with the tool manufacturers. You, the user, are granted the right to use the data as specified in the Terms of Use.

What is my commitment?

Minimum term for a flat rate is 12 months. After that you are automatically scaled down to a “search&Source” account including the pay-per-use option. 

Why should I pay for a service that I can get for free at my tool vendors?

ToolsUnited is a managed service. Our business integration team is actively involved to generate “clean” data. Because the challenge to provide tool data lies in insufficiently specified standards and the resulting room for interpretation. 

ToolsUnited licenses StOB, a harmonized data base scheme that allows to map between different export formats, including a mapping for DIN to ISO.

The business model of ToolsUnited is direct. Service in return for payment. No cross financing with other offerings, no “selling” of customer data, no ads. 

Regarding the export options, we develop and maintain interfaces to other systems, including CAM, Toolmanagement and E-Commerce. You do not get that from your tool vendor.

Who is behind ToolsUnited?

CIMSOURCE GmbH, a privately held German corporation.
