Integration Details

The TOTECS Connector software is installed on the client's Attache server or private cloud and the Attache Adapter is setup and configured.

The Connector retrieves data from Attache for both export routines and live data requests via the Attache ODBC Driver.  The default setup is the ODBC driver operates as a Microsoft Windows service running on the same server that contains the Attache data.  In some cases, the Connector or Attache ODBC Driver is installed on a separate server and mapped to the data files through a network storage drive.

Data in the form of Online Orders and Account Payments are posted into Attache via the KFI import software module.  KFI is macro driven meaning that a custom user account and order entry forms are setup and configured for the TOTECS Attache Adapter export format.
