SmartTurn Integration

SmartTurn Integration

At DiCentral, we realize that your inventory or warehouse management system (WMS) is not a standalone system. The ability to share information about purchases, orders, shipments, and inventory levels with systems used by your sales, accounting, and customer service teams is essential. SmartTurn's integration process provides companies with accurate, real-time inventory and warehouse information, regardless of which system they're viewing. Because SmartTurn is on-demand, integrations are managed by SmartTurn and shared across all our customers. The advantage: You don't need to create and manage them yourself.

The greatest efficiencies in the warehouse are achieved when the WMS fluidly exchanges information with accounting/ERP systems, barcode scanners, ecommerce systems, and many others. These systems may not be owned and run by you, but instead by your supplier, client, business partner or all three. Typical SmartTurn integrations include:

  • Accounting & Order Management Systems such as QuickBooks, NetSuite and many others
  • Barcode inventory control using scanners & mobile computing
  • EDI
  • eCommerce systems including Magento and others
  • Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems
  • And many others
  • Integration Security & Access Control
  • rom data entering and exiting the system to integration with external applications, the SmartTurn application uses the strongest encryption to protect customer data and communications, including 128-bit VeriSign SSL Certifications and 1024-bit RSA public keys
  • In addition, all integrations leverage SmartTurn's robust access control model to ensure that only those parties with the appropriate permissions are allowed to access information and perform transactions, based on their organization and role.

EDI Integration

SmartTurn supports several data translation methods including EDI (EDIFACT, X12), XML, Flat Files and Databases that allow your company to move documents between systems, send and receive notifications and streamline process flows. This is achieved through communication methods including SOAP over HTTPS, among others.
