E.merce Integration Add-ons For Microsoft Dynamics Gp-mine_清翼

Software If you are on the way to evaluate Microsoft Dynamics GP e.merce integration options, and in your case you already have custom programmed (often in-house) e.merce web application in production and you do not like the idea to redeploy e.merce on new platform (and write off investment in legacy e.merce program) – we respect your approach and would like to re.mend you this small publication. Instead of promising so-called "turn-key" e.merce to Corporate ERP tandem, we re.mend you so-called "solutions" approach, where your e.merce programmers deploy and tune connectors, libraries or code samples, proven and tested in multiple e.merce integration to Dynamics GP environments: 1.E.merce master-slave concept. Before you jump into the technology details, let’s speculate about strategy. If your current e.merce website application has rich functionality (inventory item adding, counting, pricing, including sales promotion campaigns, potentially logistic automation by initiating product allocation to Sales Order and delivery, new and existing customers maintenance, etc) then you may decide to make your current e.merce application to be a master and push its records to Dynamics GP (which should be in this case Slave application). Often we see opposite situation, where e.merce application is pretty simple and all the logic is done in Microsoft Dynamics GP and records should be pushed to e.merce (here we have GP as master and e.merce as slave) 2.E.merce integration target in Dynamics GP. In most of the scenarios you are targeting Dynamics GP Sales Order Processing (e.merce invoices or sales orders), Inventory Control (new and existing items, price lists, items availability in warehouses), Receivable Management (new and existing e.merce customers), Purchase Order (Purchase Receipts – typically when you are receiving merchandise in GP and pushing new items into e.merce database) 3.E.merce integration programming tools. Microsoft Dynamics GP is available on Microsoft SQL Server DB platform (2008, 2005, 2000 and earlier) and Microsoft Windows Servers (2008, 2003, 2000 and earlier), and these facts make Microsoft Visual Studio and Dynamics GP eConnect SDK. If fact, you can review Dynamics GP table structure in GP SDK (could be installed from GP 10 CD #2), or directly in Dynamics GP user interface (Dynamics GP -> Tools -> Resource Description -> Tables), however you should be cautious and we re.mend you to use direct SQL Select statements only to pull data from Great Plains and avoid feeding data via SQL Insert statements (as you could violate business logic and .promise data integrity, instead consider pushing data to Dynamics GP via eConnect methods) 4.E.merce Order Connector. This product is the set of SQL Stored Procedures, dedicated to e.merce developer to move e.merce orders to Dynamics GP Sales Order Processing module. It is "Solution" in the sense of being tunable and customizable, it is also .patible with historical versions of Microsoft Great Plains and Great Plains Dynamics (on Microsoft SQL Server, not available for Pervasive SQL Server 2000 or Ctree). Currently we are in progress to extend Order Connector to cover major e.merce generic platforms integration to Microsoft Dynamics GP with intuitive user interface setup 5.Alba Spectrum Posting Server. Often in e.merce you require .plete automation, where you expect e.merce walk-in or on account customer to pick the products into e.merce shopping cart, go to check out, pay with credit card or on account and then your e.merce application automatically creates Microsoft Dynamics GP Invoice (including posting it – or in ERP terminology transfer it from work to open phase). If you already reviewed eConnect libraries and methods – you should of realize, that eConnect doesn’t have Dynamics GP Batch Posting logic. If you want to do automatic batch posting directly from your e.merce application, please review Alba Spectrum Posting Server 6.Cross Platform e.merce integration to Microsoft Dynamics GP. Web hosting is very popular on Linux and Sun/Solaris platform. e.merce DB could be high end Oracle, DBII, Sybase, Progress. If this is your case, you can still use eConnect, Order Connector or Posting Server, assuming that you are familiar with such technologies as JDBC-ODBC Bridge, ODBC connection from Oracle development environment 7.E.merce for legacy Great Plains Dynamics versions. As general re.mendation (we are ready to do the job, if you decide that you would like it anyway), we re.mend you to update to current Dynamics GP version 10.0 (or if you are reading this lines in second half of 2010 – then to Microsoft Dynamics GP 11.0). Current version has the following advantages: it is supportable by Microsoft Business Solutions directly in case when you are disappointed in your Dynamics GOP Partner; it si .patible with current MS SQL Server and Windows Server versions to name a few 8.Dynamics GP Software Development Factory.
