Magento AX Integration for a Large Cattle Meat Producer in the US
Introduction to AgriBeef
Agri Beef Co. specializes in providing highest quality meat products by committing to superior standards of value, service and innovation for over four decades.
Agri Beef Co. wanted to have their ecommerce system (Magento) integrated with their back office system i.e. Dynamics AX.
Scope of Work
AB to Connector consists of 26 different legal entities in AX. AB to Connector, right now is working on getting the Ecommerce Online business entity (AB to Connector) synchronize to AX. The primary motive of this Project is to synchronize the data from the online ecommerce Magento store to the existing ABTC AX Company.
AB to Connector is currently using Traverse Order Management System to manage and process orders from Magento web store. Traverse is an ERP system from Open Systems, Inc. offering financial, operations, and sales functionality. AB to Connector is working on transitioning from Traverse to Dynamics AX. AB to Connector expects to use the AB to Connector integration for 2-way synchronization of essential information from AX to Magento and Magento to AX.
AB to Connector will work with the AX partner or another resource to define the functionality for AX to eGS (3rd party logistics provider) integration to and from eGS.
E-Gourmet is the third party logistics provider for AB to Connector. All of AB to Connector’s products are housed in their warehouse and all Orders in its entirety (picked, packed and shipped) are fulfilled by e- Gourmet. E Gourmet sends back Order Status and UPS tracking information back to Traverse.
Traverse pushes Orders that need to be fulfilled to e-Gourmet, that are then picked, packed and shipped by e-Gourmet, the Order Status and Tracking Information is pushed back by e-Gourmet to Traverse.
AB to C currently has an extension on the Magento Instance to handle Drop Shipping of the ordered products.
The primary functionality of Unigry uDropship Magento Extension is to update the inventories between Traverse and Magento on hourly basis.
uDropship extension has a built in capability of integrating with Magento. AB to Connector is yet to decide on how and to what e-Gourmet will connect to after deployment of AX Connect and AX.
Folio3 connector will not account for any integration/data sync between Dynamics AX and EGS. AB to Connector will work with the AX Partner to define the functionality for AX-EGS integration.
All Orders placed in Magento are currently synchronized with “Traverse” for further Order fulfilment.
There is a web service that imports Orders from Williams Sonoma to Traverse. A pdf file is pulled from the Williams Sonoma website and is imported into a web service that in turn then creates the Orders in Traverse.
There is also another web service that imports Orders directly into Traverse. AB to Connector will work with AX Partner to have Orders imported from other sources in to AX.
AB to Connector will have to work with the AX partner to setup web services to import the Williams Sonoma Orders and Orders coming from other sources into AX.
Orders created in AX or coming in to AX from other Sources will be synchronized to Magento with the payment method set to cash provided there is an email address specified as primary in the Contact Information section on the Customer Card in AX.
