Sage 200 Integration Options
In the modern business world, it is very often a requirement that a business will wish to integrate disparate pieces of software to avoid duplication, re-keying and potential for error.
Many of the Sage 200 sites we currently support have an integration of some sort with a third party system. A common example of this is an e-commerce website but clients will often wish to link the, best in class, Sage 200 Financials to an industry specific or bespoke commercial system.
Sage 200 has standard import capability ‘out of the box’ which will allow a CSV file in the required format (which we would provide) to be manually imported to the system by the user.
If your integration is basic but requires automating, we would look to provide a piece of established middleware called Data Exchange by Eureka Solutions.
Data Exchange for Sage 200 is an out of the box solution enabling integration between Sage 200 and any 3rd party application based on the automation of a CSV or XML file transfer
The key premise of the software is that it is designed to be used and managed by users and is not a complex tool requiring development level skill. Smith Cooper will of course provide support on the application. However we would absolutely train you on basic troubleshooting to allow you to manage any errors that occur in the first instance and solving and basic problems quickly and easily in house.
In the event that your integration is business critical, more complex, involves mapping or multiple links then we would look to implement our own Integration platform utilising the new Sage 200 API which was introduced in Sage 200 2016.
This method of integration is much more modern way of working and is significantly more efficient than file transfer. Particularly when handling large volumes of data or mapping fields from third party bespoke applications.
Smith Cooper have integrated Sage 200 with many different platforms and applications and will be launching various new standard plug-ins during 2017.
We would be delighted to discuss your requirements in more detail so contact us now below to tell us more.
