Systems Integration is Complicated - WRONG!

You are investing in a WMS system for your business to streamline that all important warehouse operation. The WMS needs to integrate or link to your ERP software to synchronise product records, purchase orders, sales orders, stock snapshots, customer returns etc.

It's really complicated and difficult to achieve we're told - Wrong! Don't be put off by the integration question, it not that difficult, we do it with every project we deliver.

Depending on which ERP software you are running, we have a host of proven and varied methods to seamlessly integrate our Dexterity WMS solution. ​​​With over 20 years in the business and a combined 50 years experience in implementing and integrating our Dexterity WMS software we know how it should work seamlessly without the users even noticing.

WMS integration

In 2015 we released our latest integration software module which can cater for a number of different connection and data exchange methods for ERP, ASN's, EDI, email and Carrier integration. The latest Dexterity IEU (Import Export Utility) is parameter driven and configurable making the integration tasks flexible and quick to deliver. We have developed a number of Dexterity "Business Objects" based on standard SQL Views and Procedures that make it easy to pass information between the ERP and our Dexerity WMS system, seamlessly and in real time.

Dexterity WMS Connection Points include:

  • Item Masters

  • Customer Details

  • Suplier Details

  • Purchase Orders

  • Containers / Advances Shipping Notifications (ASN's)

  • Sales Orders

  • Sales Returns

  • Works Orders

  • Bill of Materials

  • Stock Adjustments

  • Stock Movements

  • Order Status Changes

  • Stock Snaphotes and Cycle Counts

It is event driven using either shared SQL tables or a direct connection. No need for uploads or downloads, as new orders are entered in the ERP system they are immediately visible and available for processing in the warehouse and conversely, as orders are processed in the warehouse, the status is immediately reflected back to your ERP system so that everyone is aware of the latest state of play.

We've integrated Dexterity WMS with many different ERP solutions from SAP to Sage. The latest integration software utlility has been successfully implemented on sites who using Access Dimensions, SAP and Metodo. Further projects are planned for roll out in the next quarter using Microsoft Dynamics and Coins Construction Software.

This new functionality means that we can deliver and implement Dexterity WMS solutions faster making the time to payback and ROI even more attractive to our clients.

We have a wealth of experience in implementing our specialist Dexterity WMS Systems to help clients realise the benefits of a smart Warehouse Management System. Please get in touch for a no obligation and no pressure discussion on how Dexterity WMS could help your business. ​​
