Running VI Import in GUMU™ integrated system

By | May 28, 2015

Our GUMU™ integration is a real-time bidirectional link where customers are created / updated from Sage 100 to Sage CRM on real time basis.  GUMU™ integration uses the Sage CRM web services to read – write data into Sage CRM from Sage 100 on real time basis. This is done by using GUMU™ Sage 100 module.
In Sage 100, user can import data from an excel sheet using VI Import utility provided by standard Sage 100.  While using this VI import utility on GUMU integrated system, user may experience slowness issue or in some cases there can be chances that screen may get stuck. While doing VI import on GUMU™ Sage CRM – Sage 100 integrated system, user has to follow below process.
