Epicor and OmniWin Integrations?

Hi all,   I am working with a partner on a case where their customer has the following painpoints:    EPICOR integrations. They need workflow solution which could integrate with Epicor OmniWin (by MesserSoft) integration. OmniWIN is a CNC thermal cutting machines software.   Would anybody have any input on whether this is possible with Mx?

Hi Mieke,


As long as there is an API service that can be used to send/receive messages, then you can integrate with MX and automate workflow solutions. EPICOR does offer this.


The following youtube video Accessing the Epicor REST API - YouTube shows that you can access their RESTAPI documentation from a running instance where you have detailed information on what is needed to GET/POST.. between the different exposed services. (I tried to find the stand-alone- documentation online but was unsuccessful). 


I also saw that there are quite a few companies and products that help facilitate the integration with this platform. So, it's definitely possible and profitable :)


You can also look into using an ODATA API service like the one from CDATA (OData Service Epicor ERP: OData Epicor ERP API - CData Software). You can connect to CData following the guidelines from this resource, CData Connect Cloud - Mendix


As for OMNIWIN, I couldn't find anything useful about integrations with other applications. Their FAQ talks a lot about digitalisation, pretty much every question :) so I hope a web service that allows for exchanging of messages is included. I would contact them directly and ask what options they have available for allowing instructions to be received from external applications.
