Integrating your business applications and data is a priority for most companies; however, it isn’t always simple, and not all integrations work the way they’re supposed to.

How does SmartConnect work? 
SmartConnect focuses on connecting ERP and CRM solutions with other apps and tools, whether they’re on-premises or in the cloud. Start with pre-built connectors and templates and customize them to suit your needs, or build your integrations from scratch.  

  • Choose your sources: Pick the data sources you want to integrate, such as Dynamics 365, Dynamics NAV, Dynamics GP, Excel, SQL, Folders, REST & SOAP web services, etc.  

  • Map your data: Use a simple, understandable interface to choose exactly which data you’d like to generate. 

  • Select triggers: Choose how to trigger and automate integrations from options including manual, scheduled, and real-time. 

  • Transform information: Use scripting transformations, calculations, entity lookups, a functions library, and more to translate data into the desired end format. 

  • Connect to custom applications: Use SmartConnect’s web services REST connection to create and manage integrations with your business’s custom applications. 

  • Use scripting: For more complex needs, developers can use scripting within the integrated process to enable even more transformations and connections.
