This customer had a tight deadline for the launch of an ecommerce web site involving multiple disparate systems and partners. They were using NetSuite for accounting and inventory and Salesforce for price control, and they needed to provide data from both systems to their ecommerce partner Demandware.
The solution that BMI provided used the CEDAR Platform to connect the systems and a Windows application to control the transfer of data between systems. The Item, Inventory, and Vendor data is collected from NetSuite and the list and sale price data is collected from Salesforce. The data is then formatted to the Demandware XML spec and the Product, Inventory, and Pricebook files are sent via SFTP to a remote Demandware server. The solution was packaged in to a Windows Service which runs on one of the client’s Windows Servers, and it polls, formats, and transmits the data on a customizable schedule.
