Purpose and scope

Aphix Digital Platform integrates seamlessly with your Enterprise Resource Platform (ERP), allowing you to use and extend your business data online without compromising its quality and integrity. As standard, Aphix has developed and maintain web services to integrate its Digital Platform with:

  • SAP Business One

  • Intact iQ, xLine and vLine

  • Sage 200 and Sage EM (X3)

Aphix Digital Platform integrates with your ERP using an appropriate web service. This means that a standard set of web service calls are made to send requests for data and receive required data in response. Aphix PocketShop uses the same set of web service calls to integrate with your ERP.
