Microsoft Dynamics eConnect Explained

Microsoft Dynamics GP eConnect is one of the four Microsoft ERP offerings. It is a system that allows complex tasks to be automated. With the eConnect feature installed (comes with all Enterprise licenses), eCommerce companies can automate tasks specific to their business model.

Dynamics GP is a sophisticated system that is used by numerous different business processes to tackle some of the hardest and most critical tasks that they have to do every day.

What does it do?

How GP eConnect Works

Dynamics eConnect is designed to allow the integration between front-office (website, portal, online storefront, marketplace, etc.) and back-office applications (ERPs, CRMs, PIMs, etc.) in such a way that it streamlines many different business workflows and processes.

For example, some businesses use GP eConnect as a way of integrating all of the different information that comes in from their point of sale technology, their inventory technology, and their payroll technology. Dynamics GP allows all of this information to be housed in the same place, and it allows conflicting information between the different systems to be flagged and resolved.

This helps improve data quality and helps you improve and plan your master data management strategy.

Connect & Automate Business Processes

Use of Dynamics GP

The eConnect product (an API exposing endpoints to facilitate integration with GP) is designed so that the full power of Dynamics GP can be used by businesses that rely on front-end technologies on the web to do business.

For example, the eConnect component allows businesses to get information from their web sales and to instantly have it reported across their organization. The Dynamics GP technology can be set up to automatically report whenever needed.

For a business that does a low volume of sales, for instance, reporting could be set to an infrequent interval, such as a full day. For businesses that do rapid transactions, the reporting could be set to a very short interval, even within a few minutes. This allows each business to customize the amount of reporting that they get from their systems.

The Benefits of an Integrated System

eConnect and Dynamics GP

Via Clarity Connect™ and Microsoft eConnect, robust Dynamics GP eCommerce solutions can easily be designed, built, and customized. The two products are completely compatible with each other, so you can be confident that all information is being exchanged and reported accurately and on time.

The information can be accessed by different members of an organization, depending upon their needs. For example, Accounts Receivable can access some information while the sales staff can be given access to other information.

There's a huge amount of customization that can go on with these products and that makes them some of the most popular solutions for businesses that sell items online. Accurate financial reporting is often essential to stay profitable and on top of your finances, and that’s exactly what Clarity Connect™ and eConnect deliver.

THE ECONNECT COMPONENT OF DYNAMICS GP ENSURES IT INTEGRATES SEAMLESSLY SO MEMBERS CAN ACCESS INFORMATION BASED ON THEIR NEEDS. That’s the Clarity difference

How Clarity Can Help

Clarity's been a Microsoft partner for more than a decade and is Microsoft Dynamics Stack-certified. Of the thousands of integrations we've done, when it comes to integrating ERPs, we've done more Dynamics GP integrations than any other. We've built connectors for eConnect and for directly integrating with Dynamics GP web services, which is sometimes required if you've created custom entities within GP that can't be accessed with eConnect. If you're not sure what's next, contact us for a free consultation. For more information for your company's GP integration project, visit the Dynamics GP eCommerce Integration Resource Center.
