Order Entry Integration

Promoting SalesLogix Order to Sage 50 Accounts – Order entry integration is one of the major features which will be introduced in our GUMU integration link where SalesLogix User would be able to promote Sales Order from SalesLogix in Sage 50 .

For that purpose, the SalesLogix Sales Order Details screen will be modified to have some of the field information which are of vital importance like Despatch Date, Delivery Methods when one promotes Order in Sage 50.

Once the Order is successfully promoted in Sage 50 Accounts, GUMUTM updates certain information (like ERP Order No and is promoted checkbox ) back in SalesLogix.
