Integrate Sage 200: Data Integration & Synchronisation
Sage 200 is a proficient system for managing your finances, customers and suppliers, as well as providing business insight. However, if you rely on other applications and software within your business, such as an alternative CRM system, eCommerce solution or warehouse management system, then these need to be integrated with Sage 200 to make sure that you have full visibility into real-time data, allowing you to make critical business decisions. Lacking data integration and synchronisation between these multiple systems could cause significant productivity issues, business inefficiency and competitive weakness.
Enabling business applications to work together
Codeless Platforms’ BPA Platform enables you to integrate Sage 200 with practically any on-premises or cloud-based application at a fraction of the cost of bespoke development. More importantly, the BPA Platform’s drag and drop integration tools make integration with Sage 200 simplistic and quick to deploy. This ensures that you can rapidly automate business processes to reduce operational costs and improve company performance.
Providing this automation will help you eradicate manual processes, such as rekeying data from other data sources such as Excel spread sheets. For example, online payment processing applications will automatically pay money collected from customer accounts directly into a house bank account.
Although this payment data can be viewed in dedicated dashboards, it ideally needs to be extracted into Sage 200. Usually, this is a manual task, whereby you export the CSV files and then upload them to your system. The BPA Platform can automate this process by updating incoming payments as well as providing an indicator as to whether or not the payment was collected. The BPA Platform can also make sure customer details are automatically updated across all systems, as and when changes occur.
Integration with business partner applications
All business transactions with trading partners will ultimately result in the transfer of data. It could take the form of an XML file transfer or simply an order being received. Regardless of the type and nature of the data, you are often required to integrate this with Sage 200 or pass data to trading partner systems. This is both time-consuming and costly for employees to process. Through the BPA Platform you can automatically integrate data passed from other applications e.g. EDI files with Sage 200. Furthermore, this module can also push data to other external business applications.
Automating order workflows from Sage 200
If an order has been placed in Sage 200, the BPA Platform can create a workflow and send the order to the warehouse. The warehouse can the return the dispatch details, such as tracking numbers etc. When the workflow has been completed the BPA Platform can then despatch the items in Sage 200 and raise the invoices. Similarly, all purchase orders raised in another system, such as a product development product, could be pushed into Sage 200. This automation process will reduce manual processing and provide a significant return on ROI.
Extending your investment to deliver more
Adding data integration and synchronisation capabilities to Sage 200 will revolutionise your business, but what if you need notifications, document automation or workflow capabilities as well?
The BPA Platform comes with alerting and document automation capabilities as standard and you can purchase workflow capabilities. In short, you can extend your platform in line with your needs.
