Systems can be integrated through APIs, using EDI, or through other methods.
Crossfire helps you connect with trading partners or with internal systems to eliminate data roadblocks, automate workflows, creating ecosystems where systems, new and old work together with purpose.
We integrate with any system across a range of industries, including Supply Chain and Retail. We help provide non-EDI integration solutions as well, such as PDF to XML conversions.
Crossfire’s adaptability and scalability will allow you to maintain focus on your core competencies, while we modernise your supply chain through consolidating systems and streamlining processes.
APIs are used to connect systems with other external or internal systems. Essentially, they allow access with certain restrictions to a system enabling information to be pushed and/or pulled from the system. Establishing API's throughout different systems within a supply chain allows effective system integration.

Message standards replace traditional paper documents such as Purchase Orders, Invoices or movements in transport/warehousing.Systems We Integrate With Read More
