How do you integrate Exact software with your business solution?
Are you looking for a more efficient way to manage your business processes and streamline accounting?
Integrating Exact with your business software can make a world of difference in your operational efficiency. If you do not have in-house expertise for this kind of integration, it is advisable to consult a specialist like SevenLab. Here we describe some steps and considerations to make this process as smooth as possible.

At SevenLab, we often come into contact with Exact. This usually involves a link between Exact and the customer's system.
Many Exact Software users may not be fully aware of the API capabilities the platform offers. Exact has an extensive API that allows you to integrate other systems and software with your Exact solution relatively easily.
This is especially relevant for organisations that have multiple business solutions in use and are looking for ways to link them together. For example, if you use Exact for accounting alongside another CRM system, these systems could potentially be linked via the API for better data consistency and efficiency.
What does SevenLab do?
Identifying integration points
It is essential to identify your company's specific needs and integration points between Exact and your business software. Whether it's financial reporting, inventory management, or a CRM; having a clear plan helps avoid unforeseen complications.
Communicating with Exact software
Exact offers a comprehensive API that allows you to integrate other systems and software relatively easily. API documentation is available for developers to understand and implement the process of integration.
We are familiar with Exact's API, and we familiarise ourselves with the API of external customer systems and their documentation if necessary. In this way, we ensure that we can link systems together and that this works efficiently.
Security is an important aspect of any integration. We make sure you will use strong authentication mechanisms and data encryption to ensure the security of both the Exact software and your own system.
Maintenance and monitoring
After implementation, constant maintenance and monitoring is required to ensure that the integration remains effective and any new needs can be addressed.
What should you look out for yourself?
Test environment and thorough testing
We provide a separate test environment where you can test the integration without affecting the live systems. Before going live, it is crucial to thoroughly test the integration to ensure that all systems communicate correctly with each other. Any bugs or inconsistencies can be resolved early at this stage.
Consider carefully in advance how both systems should react if something goes wrong. For example, should a warning message be sent to an administrator? We will think along with you about a good solution.
By investing in a seamless and secure integration with Exact, organisations can increase their efficiency, effectiveness and competitive advantage. Note that working with Exact's API can be complex and require technical expertise, so it is usually a good idea to consult a specialist if you are considering this route.
