Dynamics GP eCommerce Integration Notes

Certainly, if you are building ecommerce from scratch, then you should consider products as the base of your future ecommerce web application.  However, and this is probably your case, in ecommerce scenarios we often see legacy ecommerce portal, which does the job, and your role is to give some impulse as software developer in your IT department to ecommerce integration evolution.  

In this case you are moving away from emailing orders “automatically” from ecommerce to Great Plains users to somewhat like batch overnight ecommerce Sales Invoices and Payments processing or even in ideal case to real time Invoices creation triggering from ecommerce to Dynamics GP SOP module.  Popular PHP based ecommerce shopping carts also create customer profile on the fly or update existing customer.  In this case integration goes to Receivable Management Customer Master file in Great Plains.  Let’s take a look at technical side or programming tools:

 

1.       Dynamics GP eConnect.  If you are comfortable in programming in C# or VB.Net, and you have basic SQL scripting and stored procedures understanding – we recommend you to invest your time in eConnect.  For Dynamics GP version 10.0 it is installed automatically on your DB side.  eConnect, in fact, does have most of the logic, that you would be trying to build in custom SQL stored procedures.  However, eConnect stored procedures are encrypted and you would need to formalize your programming logic to accommodate eConnect rules.  If all you need to do is create or update customer record, and then create Sales Order and possibly apply credit card customer payment (for Credit Card Processing you should deploy third party products: PC Charge, IC Verify, etc.) – eConnect does this job

 

2.       Dynamics GP Integration Manager.  If you do not see yourself as Microsoft Visual Studio developer, and you are OK to do integration in batch mode overnight or every few hours, consider Great Plains Integration Manager.  If you have very basic programming skills, probably from high school, IM has VBA scripting, where you can tweak Integration logic a little bit.  IM could be scheduled for shutting integration, Microsoft Business Solutions has scheduling tool, however you could schedule it via DOS batch file or third party add-ons

 

3.       Alba Spectrum Order Connector.  Thinking about IM or even eConnect, where integration logic is rich and requires processing time and power, when you need simple repetitive integrations on the very high volume, we have Order Connector, written in very direct SQL stored procedures, providing astonishing integration speed

 

4.       Posting Server or Autopost.  Here you are breaking through eConnect or Integration Manager limitations and you can now post Great Plains Batches automatically from your eCommerce application
