Perfion's built-in synchronization feature (also called 'Sync') is a SQL query that administrators use to import raw data from external databases into Perfion features. The reason behind this service, is that Perfion synchronization, although powerful, can only be run manually. PicoPublish's SyncService enables you to easily automate and schedule multiple synchronization jobs for the system.
Automatically run sync jobs
If your business has a need to run multiple synchronizations per day and or at regular intervals, you can set SyncService to automatically handle things and you can use your valuable time on other tasks. SyncService, for example, can be set up to run at night, so users would not be affected by imports. SyncService can also run in the background and not interfere with your other work.
SyncService allows you to import Perfion product data from:
Your company's ERP system
Other systems internally in your company
SyncService can also manipulate data in Perfion when calculations and formatting are to be made. For example, conversion of metric to U.S. standards, such as inches, pounds, gallons, etc., or formatting to a specific number of decimal places.
