System integration is a highly technical, knowledge-driven process. Proper execution requires significant expertise and experience.
We are recognized system integration experts.
We have experience integrating with a wide range of client solutions. This includes transportation, billing, and legacy host systems from SAP, Oracle, Microsoft, and JD Edwards—as well as specialized applications such as slotting, conveyor, voice, MHE, and ASRS.
We perform all the steps required for a successful integration
Before executing the project, we determine:
- How the two-way communication channel can best be established
- The bandwidth required
- The gap in communication standards and protocols between the two systems
- The operational changes required to handle expiry dates, and time sensitive or urgent orders
- The communication channel to be utilized (FTP, system file transfer, Microsoft message queue, etc.)
- Error recovery and synchronization of records
From the management side, we forecast the type and amount of resources required, and determine the costs and critical paths based on resources and technical dependencies.
Then we apply our diagnostic, troubleshooting, and programming skills to the process of translating and adapting the data.
We can develop custom solutions—quickly and efficiently
When the communications gap between two systems can not be bridged through standard interfaces, we have the skills to develop custom middleware. Our middleware solutions are designed to deliver the desired results while maintaining system performance and integrity.
We can also create custom interfaces quickly. That saves you time and money while helping to ensure that project deadlines are met.
Through every phase of the system integration process, we understand the different options available, and which choices are best for your particular requirements.
System integration is a project best handled by highly qualified experts. That is why so many companies come to Longbow for their HighJump & JDA system integrations. We deliver the results they are looking for. Let us do the same for you.
