One of FTS’s clients had implemented Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 in addition to ERP-system Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0. The question of a single datapoint came up, as double data entry was not possible.

  • Keep sales manager’s catalogue

Dynamics AX in FTS

i-Neti’s specialists thoroughly investigated the integrability of the 2 systems and analysed the various experiences of a number of companies. In the end, we made a choice in favour of a standardised solution from Microsoft — Connector for Microsoft Dynamics.

Its great virtue is scalability with the help of plugins (development of which requires the knowledge of C# and Visual Studio). The client approved the development of a new plugin, which allows to exchange XML-files between 2 systems online. In addition, a deployment of entry-exit point data by means of built-in development capabilities was required from Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

During the course of implementation, there was a systematic adjustment and clarification of complicated and specific points. As a result, the interacting process with the project team on the client’s side was aligned and development was significantly sped up.
