Integrating eCommerce with Dynamics AX
Tips for and benefits of integrating Dynamics AX with your eCommerce platform
Integrating Dynamics AX with eCommerce allows your robust ERP system and your eCommerce platform to share important information, enabling your business to improve efficiency and stay up to date.
Microsoft Dynamics AX is a robust ERP solution for enterprise businesses that need a powerful business system. Dynamics AX enables its users to manage their finances, human resources, sales, and supply chain easily and efficiently.
Microsoft Dynamics AX (Axapta) is an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution software for large businesses that need power and can handle a complex system. Dynamics AX includes over a dozen base modules including inventory management, sales and marketing, and accounting. There are also industry specific modules available to customize Dynamics AX to suit your company’s individual needs.
Integrating Dynamics AX with eCommerce
Utilize AIF- Microsoft Dynamics AX’s application integration framework (AIF) allows your Dynamics AX software to send and receive data from outside applications and systems.
Use Clarity Connect- Clarity’s robust integration platform, Clarity Connect, serves as a communication hub between Dynamics AX and your eCommerce platform, ensuring that data is properly transferred.
Employ SSL- When implementing an integration, Clarity always arranges for data to be transmitted over SSL (secure socket layers) to keep data secure.
Automate Data Transfers- One of the best benefits of integration is automated data transfers between systems, which saves your employees from having to manually transfer the data.
Edit and Update Data from One System- Integration allows you to view and change data in both systems from one place.
To get the most out of your Dynamics AX and eCommerce integration, it needs to be configured and implemented correctly. Using Dynamics AX AIF provided by Microsoft to integrate with eCommerce will allow you to easily transfer data and documents between Dynamics AX and your eCommerce. Clarity Connect, Clarity’s middleware solution, also helps make your integration work right. It serves as a queue, storing and sending information from one system until is successfully received by the other. To keep your information secure, data transmissions should always happen over SSL.
An integration between an advanced ERP system like Dynamics AX and eCommerce can be very beneficial. It saves you and your employee’s time and resources by handling the transfer of data and making sure you only have to update your data in one system. It also provides you and your customer with the most up to date information about sales and inventory, transferring current data from your Dynamics AX system to your eCommerce site or vice versa.
