ERP side, on this occasion, despite being a project closely linked to the #Retail world, in this first phase the objectives have been related to strong integration processes, their reflection in inventory and, of course, the financial accounting impact. Elements such as Shopify, Salesforce, marketplaces, the brand’s own physical shops and consignments in other third-party stores, different logistics operators and a proprietary microservices platform were key elements to draw a very complete architecture with Dynamics 365. The client itself developed part of the integration with Dynamics 365 through a layer of services responsible for decoupling communications between the ERP and other applications. Thanks to the MSDyn365FO framework to expose custom REST services that can be consumed from the outside, it was possible to implement as many services as necessary to provide the system with the required entry points (sales orders, inventory adjustments…). The pyramidal base of this integration was the Commerce Scale Unit with which it was possible to take full advantage of the standard capabilities of the entire Microsoft platform. With this project and following the incessant demand from customers requesting the need to implement EDI communication protocols in Dynamics 365, we have been able to optimise the architecture to further improve our new product to be launched in a few months called EDIZURE.
