WMS

Custom Integration

Navigator WMS can interface to any ERP/accounting system. If your accounting system is not listed, we have standard CSV, XML and direct SQL interfaces "off the shelf". We will work with your ERP vendor to import the data required to provide you with the warehouse functionality desired. These methods are also popular with custom-written / in-house accounting/order processing solution.

CSV File Interface

Using CSV files to transfer data to and from Navigator is a simple, robust integration solution for many accounting systems. Navigator polls an 'inbound' folder for sales orders ready for picking, and searches a different folder for purchase orders 'ready to receive'. At the conclusion of transactions, return CSV files are generated in the relevant 'outbound' folders to be processed by the accounting system.

XML File Interface

Navigator supports the use of XML files to transfer data to and from the accounting system.  Navigator polls an 'inbound' folder for sales orders ready for picking, and searches a different folder for purchase orders 'ready to receive'. At the conclusion of transactions, return XML files are generated in the relevant 'outbound' folders to be processed by  the accounting system.

SQL Interface

Navigator's SQL interface is used to interface to SQL Server based accounting systems. Navigator provides a set of standard stored procedures which are called to retrieve stock and master data, and to pass back transaction confirmations using a standard XML structure.
