Visitors: 159

Microsoft Great Plains ecommerce architecture: website with Sales Order Processing and Microsoft Dynamics GP as accounting back office. Highlights to automatic invoices posting, inventory item allocation

Technically you can start from scratch and purchase webstore, however typically customers have to use evolutionary approach to their ecommerce strategy. If you have your existing ecommerce website, you next step to link this specific ecommerce (often developed inhouse) with your ERP application. Former Great Plains Dynamics/eEnterprise and currently Microsoft Dynamics GP has broad number of installation across the US and you may not have another option, but work with you existing MRP – Great Plains.

  • eConnect. In the past budget was an issue to purchase eConnect, so you might be designing or purchasing simple stored procedures, helping you send Sales Order or invoice from ecommerce web site to Great Plains. Our recommendation is – when eConnect became available – do not invent the wheel and utilize it in you ecommerce web integration. The most elegant way is to call XML web services interface of eConnect

  • Beyond eConnect. If you want complete automation, when posting of SOP invoice is done automatically (upon the credit card payment), then you need to call portions of Microsoft Dynamics GP internal logic, which is currently the realm of Microsoft Great Plains Dexterity, where you need to know Dex architecture, sanscript, GP tables, etc. Instead of investing in dex learning, you may decide to purchase Dexterity Posting Server

  • Some eConnect restrictions. Old Great Plains modules are out of eConnect scope, such as Invoicing module (do not confuse – Sale Order Processing or SOP is automated in eConnect). Plus do not expect third party modules to be in standard eConnect, however ISV companies might have eConnect extension, automating their third party modules

  • Auto Posting Server. Supported and distributed by Alba Spectrum it uses so-called Great Plains Dexterity source code programming – it calls GP posting logic when your batch is ready for posting
