Integration Management System

IMS is the engine of integration between Mago4's and Infinity's worlds: we discover now how it is able to bring decisive benefits to company's operations.

As you know, Mago4 is integrated with several software and services of the Zucchetti galaxy. In particular, for the integration with Infinity Zucchetti, there is a specialized engine called IMS.

Before we get to the heart of the matter, let's take a step back: what does it mean to have Infinity Zucchetti? In practice, it means to have a web application (using the browser) to manage the company's CRM, to manage your calendar or the shared business contacts; it also means DMS, document management, with the possibility, thanks to its technology, to display via web any attachment to documents, even ERP ones.

The use of IMS (Integration Management System) is a great step forward for the exchange of data in real time between Mago's and Infinity's environments.

Sometimes, to access new features or an extended set of data to share between applications, the IMS component has to be updated. We are well aware that software updating is often seen as a moment of blocking normal operations with obvious repercussions on company efficiency. To completely eliminate the so-called "downtime" due to the necessary update of the component, we have improved also this aspect: from the new version of IMS (1.0.10) it is in fact possible to update IMS without blocking operations on either Mago or Infinity! Simply, the reference partner will update the integration component in a "silent" way, without disturbing or interrupting anyone's work.

A great benefit for your efficiency and productivity!

What is described above is only one of the new features included in the latest version of the IMS integration engine. You can discover them all by reading the release notes.

I.Mago features

Integration is a hot subject, whose reality is rapidly evolving. Here is an overview of the main features offered by your ERP.

The integration between Mago4 and the Zucchetti galaxy allows a thorough dialogue between systems, thanks to the constant exchange of information, with the result of offering your company all the plus of an integrated, extensive and powerful structure.

As you know, your ERP Mago4 is enhanced by the functionalities of I.Mago, the application that connects Mago4 with the Infinity Zucchetti world by enhancing the functionality of Mago4 with Infinity Zucchetti's features dedicated to Document Management System (Infinity DMS), Customer Relationship Management (Infinity CRM) and Collaboration (Infinity Application Framework, IAF) with, for example, mail and calendar applications. This union allows you to put the ERP engine into a broad collaborative environment, enhanced by a great integration of procedures and a fluid user experience.

But that's not all: the commitment to make the integration between systems increasingly smooth and complete is constant, as shown by the numbers of I.Mago. Just think that in less than a year - since the launch of I.Mago in July 2016 - there are over 50 new features added to integration.

Do you want to have some proof of that? Nothing could be easier!

Among the most useful improvements, we find the extent of the I.Mago synchronization capabilities, which now offers the possibility to synchronize in Infinity also the DMS documents so-called "extended", or attachments that do not strictly belong to the CRM data, as for example, the attachmentsto related to the passive cycle documents.

In addition, I.Mago constantly increases the number of new data handled in sync from Mago4 to Infinity CRM. Just To give an example, in the customer database is now present the code for agent of other sites, which previously was not included in the set of synchronized data. The same principle applies, always by way of example, to the notes in the "people" of customer master data.

Incremental synchronization is for sure another I.Mago plus of great interest. In technical language, incremental synchronization is defined as the procedure for synchronizing massively all the data that come after batch procedures. In other words, the incremental logic allows you to update data in Infinity strating from the changes made in Mago4, acting just on the elements that have changed since the last execution of the synchronization - think for example at massive updating of VAT codes in clients lists.

Moreover, I.Mago sees a steady and strong expansion of the synchronized data structure, with consequent positive effect of a more and more accurate and improved dialogue between Zucchetti Infinity and Mago4. A specific case is represented by the management of customer prices / items, previously excluded from the branches taken into account by the synchronization engine.

In this post we have just mentioned some of the features of I.Mago, but there are many other topics related to the integration with Zucchetti's solutions that deserve a close-up. One for all is the I.Mago Studio development environment, that as you know was released in March 2017...and that is already equipped with a new engine!

A great way to learn more about the integrations designed for Mago4 is to continue following this blog: we will often discuss this topic. If in the meantime you want to explore the theme of integration, we recommend that you refer to the special reports available on the Microarea portal, in the section MyMago4 of Restricted Area.
