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.
