Do you feel that erp does not fit everything?

ERP control system

You have probably already purchased an ERP system that serves your company's internal management well.

  • But do you still feel that something is missing?
  • Do you need better customer and/or supplier interfaces?
  • Should you be able to serve your customers better online?
  • Should pricing be improved and/or speeded up?
  • Should the product configurator be able to do better?
  • Do you need support services for salespeople?


It is quite rare that any ERP can meet all your individual needs as such.

ERP API interface

However, any governance system of any significance today already has a good API interface, which supports a range of third-party solutions.

Through the API interface, control system data can be read and updated by the system from outside from the programme.

For example:

  • Name registers
  • Customer registers
  • Supplier registers
  • Price lists
  • Offers
  • Orders
  • Deliveries
  • Stock balances

XtraSuite additional functions

The XtraSuite ERP add-on service is designed to facilitate the implementation of customizable add-on functions as XtraSuite modules to meet your specific needs.

XtraSuite is not just an integration service, but standalone cloud service, which communicates via an API interface with your ERP system. The XtraSuite application has its own internal database, which can be used when the ERP database does not provide storage for all the data you need. For example, the configuration parameters needed by your product configurator.

The principle of operation is as follows:

  • You will be provided with an independent service tailored to your needs. modules.
  • The module talks to XtraSuite XtraSuite API interface over.
  • XtraSuite talks to your ERP system ERP API interface over.
  • The module and the XtraSuite together form a customised application, which will provide you with new features for using your ERP system.
  • XtraSuite and ERP API form a standardised application retrieve, create and maintain data in the various registers of your ERP system.

FROM CONFIGURATOR TO E-COMMERCE

Netmaan XtraSuite's implementation model allows modules to be implemented well for your different customisation needs without touching the ERP ERP legacy you are fully using and without changing the way you use it.

Since a customised module is always fully adapted to your needs, even modules that are similar in terms of ambition can differ a great deal compared to competing companies.

A module developed specifically for your needs can give you a clear competitive advantage compared to your competitors. For example, with product configurators or pricing tools, you can use your know-how to gain a significant advantage, for example in tenders.

We are moving forward with a double-diamond model of service design

In the double diamond model, ideas are first collected, then refined and finally the best option is chosen. The same process is repeated twice: the first time define the problem and on the second creating a solution.

This allows us to in partnership with avoid the common mistake of starting to develop a solution without a common understanding of the need and the big picture.

By applying the right methods to the job, together we can make it possible for you to. successful services.

IMPLEMENTATION USING AGILE METHODS

When we get to the implementation phase, agility is the key. In project management, we use the agile Scrum framework.

In Scrum, we use pre-arranged events to create regularity and minimise the need for non-Scrum meetings. Scrum events are time-limited i.e. each of them has a maximum length.

In Scrum, added value is often created and regular, working software delivered to you. Your priorities may change mid-implementation, but the Scrum sprint model brings just that to the project. flexibilitywhat it will take to change your short-term needs.

In this model, the online store is synchronised in terms of the products sold ERP name register, customers ERP customer register and shopping baskets ERP order records.

However, product categories, product names, product descriptions and e-commerce prices will be maintained in XtraSuite registers, so that the ERP world can continue to work with the usual names and descriptions, regardless of the e-commerce.

  • Product images and other documents (PDF files, 3D models, etc.)
