Need access to external data in Dynamics 365 Business Central?  Popdock makes this a simple process to deliver using Popdock’s virtual integration options.

To put it simply, virtual integration is taking data from one app and displaying it inside another app, wherever your end users work.  Popdock offers a variety of connectors to many types of apps – CRM, eCommerce, Shipping, database, project management…really, any app with a REST API.  This gives our customers a lot of flexibility to bring in the right data for Dynamics 365 Business Central users to work smarter.

The beauty of this is:

  1. You can deliver your integration really quickly. (And don’t need to be a developer or know Business Central AL code to do so!)
  2. Your team can have insight into the data they need.
  3. The data is always real-time, so your end users have a live look at updated data.
  4. You can turn on options for users to take action and work with the data.
  5. You’re not needing to deliver traditional integration where you’d be duplicating data and paying to store it in the Business Central environment.
