Naperville, IL (PressExposure) July 13, 2008 -- Microsoft Dynamics GP ERP implementing often requires integrated approach, when you have your new accounting and MRP application to continue work with legacy parts of your IT infrastructure. Imagine the scenario, when you have say Lotus Notes Sales Order Processing custom database, where you are happy with Workflow and would like to send approved orders to Dynamics GP Great Plains SOP module for order execution in your warehouse and shipping departments. Another example is e-commerce web site integration with newly implemented GP back office. Alba Spectrum carries broad technology expertise and industry knowledge. We would like to give you some GP modification and integration highlights:
1. Microsoft Dexterity. This tool gives you unlimited control over all the objects and parts in Dynamics GP, however it also exposes you to the highest risk of altering internal business logic and data integrity, meaning that you don't want to stop your ERP in order to fix the damage, caused by programmer, who was in learning curve in using GP Dexterity programming. With Dex we recommend you to appeal to professional GP programmers and ISV partners. The most often Great Plains Dexterity customizations are changing GP screens and extending existing logic of GP core modules.
2. eCommerce integrations. Here you often see the situation, when you have existing working and pretty robust website with shopping cart, catalogues, pricing schemes. Then you may consider two phases of ecommerce integrating: first phase would be just sending Invoices to GP; and the second phase would be controlling catalogues and pricing from GP, meaning two-ways integration. There are multiple GP add-ons on the market, dedicated to eCommerce, however often we see the path of lightweight custom GP SDK eConnect programming.
3. eCommerce auto posting. We also see the demand to post transactions from ecommerce application in GP automatically, by batch. We recommend you to deploy Alba Spectrum Posting Server to do the job.
