MERLIN supports three methods of ERP integration:
1. Secured, Published APIs
2. Integrated Workflow Engine
3. Physical data file transfer

Additionally Memex Partners can provide ERP integration to Epicor and Syteline, through their respective data bridges or terminals. Email for more information.

All three integration methods utilize MERLIN’s extensive API. Legacy ERP systems can output jobs and product standards in predefined data files, which will be processed and imported into MERLIN.

MERLIN also has an integrated workflow engine to map data tables directly into MERLIN. The workflow Engine employs conditional logic to control the import of jobs and standards.

For more recent ERP systems, MERLIN provides an extensive API to which the ERP can be configured to push jobs and standards directly into MERLIN.

MERLIN also supports generating labor/time tickets back to an ERP.
