Challenges
As relevant data is one of the most valuable assets for credit control, our partner – Draycir – has invited Global Mediator to develop a two-way connector for Credit Hound software and Dynamics 365 Business Central. At the beginning of the collaboration, the following goals were defined as the most important to reach:
  • To provide fast productivity with an exchange of heavy data loads from cloud-based Business Central to Credit Hound and backward.
  • To grant users access to modify the set of parameters for the data exchange between applications manually.
  • To empower users to gracefully handle updates of their ERP-system in the future without the developer's help.
  • The newly built connector should be fully optimised to the current version of Credit Hound.
  • To maintain CI/CD during all stages of the development process.
"The speed of data exchange is essential for advanced credit control. The idea of a connector is rather simple, but clean execution required profound skills and knowledge. Global Mediator's team has understood our needs from the very beginning. We felt a strong bond in technical expertise as well."
- Chris Hazeldine, Global Sales & Marketing Director
Solution
  • The connector is fully versatile, enabling fast and smooth data exchange between Business Central, Credit Hound, as well as the reverse direction. The architecture is built through web API.
  • Easy access to the connector is provided via the user's credentials as well as access to the Business Central. It highlights the user-friendliness of the system.
  • The priority of data changes is predefined according to the project's requirements, putting Credit Hound as the single source of truth.
  • To get better speeds on uploads, the system refreshes only modified data saving precious time and enables them to be continuously connected to the relevant data updates.
  • Users can select the required fields to be refreshed, synchronising them with a time frame– even from 5 sec or less. Simultaneous synchronisation for several companies is also foreseen and provided with the Credit Hound D365 BC Connector.
  • Quality Assurance methodology was applied along with all project's phases and supported bug-free development.
  • All code elements have been prepared for Azure DevOps as a tool for maintaining the development lifecycle – based on that project's Git repository was created.
