ERP Integration

Are you looking to connect your existing software with external ERP software?

Are you looking to connect your existing Enterprise Resource Planning software with external systems, third-party systems, or even separated internal systems?  Wondering how you can do that in a way that seamlessly connects with your ERP system (or other systems) without required manual actions? 

We can help!

The LINK® manages all your integrations with a single software standard. This means standardized methodologies, standardized capabilities, and standardized support. 

The LINK is the best choice for all of your ERP integration needs!


Labor Data Collection

 Often not handled by ERP systems

Labor data collection is often not handled by ERP systems as well as third-party systems. 
You don’t have to switch to a new ERP to leverage the strengths of a dedicated labor data collection system.  TheLINK can let you enjoy labor data collection integration today:
Synchronize orders and route information between systems in real-time;
Synchronize employees between systems in real-time;
Automatically flow transactions as they happen:
– Labor data PICK/Consumption transactions
– Material PICK/Consumption transactions
– Production transactions;
Synchronize and utilize piece-rate, labor-rate or other data stored in your ERP

TheLINK automatically synchronizes data between the two systems, on a schedule or in real-time (when allowed).  The labor data tracking system always has the latest orders, routes, employees, and related data without the need for manual intervention.  System-optimized adapters ensure connectivity to a wide variety of systems.

WMS

Can be a good partner with ERP

WMS (Warehouse Management Systems) can be a great adjunct to an ERP system, but only if you have a good integration strategy:
ERP to WMS Integration
Items, UOM, and related data;
Inventory transactions/levels;
Purchase Orders;
Sales Orders
WMS to ERP Integration
Purchase Order Receipts;
Shipments;
Inventory Adjustments / Transfers

The LINK synchronizes data between the ERP and WMS automatically.  Transactions in one system flow seamlessly to the next, allowing workers to move from system to system without having to wait or perform manual transactions to sync the systems.

Time & Attendance/Payroll

If your ERP does not offer a solution

If your ERP does not handle payroll then a good integration with a third-part Time & Attendance/Payroll system might be just what you need.  A wide variety of options leaves you in control over how the Time & Attendance/Payroll data is transferred. 

Synchronize employees and employee data;
Send work record transactions; Automatically generate Time & Attendance/Payroll files with each pay period;
Automate payroll-related GL transactions per pay period

You can control the flow and the timing, allow for manual review or editing, and commit when you are ready.  Or various levels of automation can be added to streamline the process.  Add payroll processing to your ERP through integration.

MES

Integrate your ERP with your MES

Manufacturing Execution Systems can automate the factory floor.  They control the movements, mechanics and flow of manufacturing, but they still need orders and routings that are stored in the ERP. This makes any good MES implementation even better when you include an integration to your ERP.

ERP to MES Integration
Items, UOM, and related data;
Inventory transactions / levels;
Production Orders

MES to ERP Integration
Consumption (material or labor PICKs);
Production;
Inventory Adjustments / Transfers

The LINK synchronizes data between the ERP and the MES automatically. 
Transactions in one system flow seamlessly to the next, allowing workers to move from system to system without having to wait or perform manual transactions to sync the systems.  

Alerts

Often lacking in ERP systems

Alerts are often lacking in ERP systems.  With The LINK you can add alerts for a wide variety of scenarios including customized alerts to suit just about any situation.
Item entry is missing data (like costs or other ties) XX hours after a new item is entered;
Production/Consumption milestones;
Real-time alerting for parts sent to quarantine, or specific areas;
Alerting on shipment activities (on what is being shipped, or even on what is not being shipped though user-customizable rules);
Machine maintenance milestones;
and more.

The LINK has support for custom criteria so no matter what the alert criteria is – if they can describe it, then The LINK can probably support it.  Alerts can be stored in the database (for reporting) and/or go out as emails or text messages.  Alerts are in real-time – just like your customer expects them to be.

Leverage enterprise-class integration capabilities:
