Anyone out there find an integration solution that takes Softlist output and feeds it to their Retail Lumber Point of Sale Estimating module?

If so, how?

- Directly Integrated?

- Output Softlist Report to a third party software for processing and loading into POS system?

- Print the Softlist Report and manually key the data into the Point of Sale estimating module?

The most I have been able to do is configure the system to use external tables that my "suppliers" have access to update their own pricing. It means I always have current pricing.

We use BizTrack at our lumberyard and I have the POS tied into SoftList to keep prices current. I update/ synchronize my prices once a week using External Pricing Tables in SoftList. I have not come up with a way to send my SoftList report to our POS to create an order. I'm hoping that the new Export to Excel option in version 2018 might provide a way, but haven't had time to try yet.

Thank you Phil.

It may be I only heard a rumor.

Heard there may be two outfits across the US that are doing it.

 

Pretty sure the key is third party software that makes a block box connection between Softlist out> [and] <POS in.

Some intervention required.

Was hoping to get confirmation.
