The Edge currently has two solutions available that can be used to integrate our desktop application with an online website or Ecommerce platform: Edge Data Transfer (EDT) and Edge Connector (ECon).
The two solutions are quite different. Please read the overviews below and see their respective sections on the following pages for more detailed information as well as pricing. The Edge only supports running one of these integrations; you cannot use both at the same time.
Edge Data Transfer (EDT)
EDT is an application that can export raw data and images from your Edge database. It is then up to your web developer to interpret this data and develop the “bridge” (or “connector”) to integrate it with your website or Ecommerce platform. EDT also includes import functionality allowing some data, such as customers, wish lists, and sales, to flow back into The Edge.
EDT is versatile but requires you to hire a developer to build the integration.
Our partners, GemFind and Punchmark, have already built their own integrations utilizing EDT. Because of their familiarity with our software, we offer a discount on the price of the integration application. Follow the links below to explore the solutions they offer.
