ConnectIT

Design your own import and export interfaces - without coding - all directly in NAV

ConnectIT  

Importing sales or purchase orders, exporting inventory and price lists, creating data feeds and connecting online shops. These a just a few examples of what you can do with ConnectIT.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV has some import and export features like rapid start, but there are many cases in which these simply aren't sufficient. You want more control over your interfaces, more control over how data gets validated and processed, and more control on how data is structured and formatted. Perhaps you also want to schedule your imports or automatically export to an FTP server or connect to a web service. 

That is why we created ConnectIT; an advanced integration suite for Dynamics NAV which can be used by both people with limited technical skills and by hardcore developers. 

Connectivity means productivity 

We already named a few, but here is the longer list of examples of what can be done with ConnectIT;

  • Import suppliers catalogues
  • Export product, price, inventory data for your retailers
  • Real-time matching of customer and contact data between your CRM and ERP systems
  • Synchronize data between NAV and systems like your warehouse (WMS) or transport (TMS) system
  • Periodic import of information from your HR and payroll systems
  • Integrate e-commerce solutions with Microsoft Dynamics NAV
  • Create detailed data feeds to link with online market places like Amazon and eBay
  • Synchronize data between NAV companies
  • Transport data from standard NAV to an add-on solution or any third party application
  • Get information from and to your mobile services

    To accomplish these task you need customized interfaces, and all cases ConnectIT is the toolkit that gets you the right results. From a simple CSV or Excel export, which can be created with just a few clicks. To complex XML files, partly modeled via the designer and partly via code. ConnectIT connects databases, applications, files and services in the most efficient way. 

    Creating interfaces in the blink of an eye

    Traditionally, building an interface can be a time consuming and technically complex task. Not with ConnectIT. This solution elegantly guides you through the process. Even if you lack advanced technical knowledge! This saves you both time and money. Once your new interface is running, maintenance is just as easy. Everything you need is available in this flexible and user friendly toolbox.

    ConnectIT is completely embedded in Microsoft Dynamics NAV, so it can help you with even the most specific tasks. Again, just create the interfaces you need. 

    No coding required - Advanced coding possibilities

    Anyone can open up ConnectIT and create interfaces by just clicking buttons, selecting fields and adding settings on how the interface should behave. But, this wouldn't be a highly sophisticated integration studio if you couldn't go any further than that. So, if you are a developer and want to use C/AL code to add more logic, go ahead and write all the custom code units and functions you want. Define variables, manipulate their data and use them as parameters for (custom) functions. All this makes that there are almost no limits to what you can do with ConnectIT. 

    ConnectIT - Another smart Microsoft Dynamics NAV add-on

    ConnectIT can be installed within minutes and has a very low impact on your current NAV system.
