Integrating Dynamics CRM with your back office ERP/Accounting

If you need to build an integration between Dynamics CRM and your back office ERP then Scribe has everything you need.


We've been using Scribe to integrate our customers Dynamics CRM system with their back office ERP for years now, so we thought it would be good to highlight a few reasons why Scribe is our go to platform for integration.

One thing to love about Scribe is that it allows you, when possible, to keep your integration design simple by offering an abundance of built in functions, my favorite being the inline lookup functions that will lookup and locate foreign key references across multiple systems. This translates to huge cost savings because it allows you to take a map from development to production in less time.

Simple is great, but when you're integrating a back office system things can get complicated. Scribe handles this complexity amazingly well by offering flow control logic that is coupled with the integration operations. This has a few advantages, one of those is shown below in a screen shot which displays the integration operations and control flow based on the results of the operation. I especially like this because it is easy to see what the map is supposed to do and with Scribe's built in testing functions, you are able to trace the flow control results path using live data without actually having to execute the integration or alter any data. With Scribe's test functions, you can trace and fix issues quickly allowing you to produce production ready integrations more quickly. Scribe's platform is also built so that you can flag steps and fields with comments and maintain any special documentation right within the map; and then generate a report that can serve as your integration documentation and definition.


The last thing I'll mention about Scribe has actually less to do with integration and more to do with business intelligence. In Dynamics CRM, we often have customers requesting summary metrics in a snapshot fashion that they can view within native CRM dashboards. Usually, these requests are complex spanning multiple entities and calculations. Generally, if the customer didn't own Scribe then we would build them a custom assembly or plugin that would perform the calculations and update/create the records in CRM. With Scribe though, this process is much simpler because we only need to build the query against the customer's CRM system and then put in place a Scribe map that can run on a set schedule or based on event triggers.
