SOAP XML

When a sales person asked us the question, I know I should keep it simple and relate to everyday life.

what kind device or software who connected between ERP and WMS?’

I answered:
Hi TN,
the communication between ERP and WMS is achieved using multiple message exchange.
we called them Host Interface Messages.
we use XML.
