Share Article

Integration Vendor adds critical enterprise level features in response to steady stream of larger customers and deployments.

In addition to the four major features sets targeted at enterprise customers, our latest release adds a number of features targeted at general flexibility/usability

Scribe Software, a rapid integration vendor and the leading integration and migration solution choice of Microsoft Dynamics® CRM, Microsoft Dynamics® GP and Microsoft Dynamics® NAV partners and customers has released Scribe Insight version 6.5. The Insight 6.5 release adds several features which further strengthen Scribe's growing position among deployments at large enterprises. Scribe will hold a product release webcast at 11 am EST on April 16. Registration for this event is available at the following URL:

Scribe Insight 6.5 adds a Web Services adapter, Failover/Disaster Recovery (leveraging Microsoft Clustering Technologies), Support for Windows Server 2008 64-bit, and Windows Authentication among a number of features designed to enhance flexibility and usability. Scribe's Product Development and Product Management teams based the new release on product feedback submitted directly by Scribe customers and partners through Scribe's community feedback portal OpenMind.

Scribe Vice President of Products, Robert Sturim, commented on several of version 6.5's new features:

  • Scribe's new Web Services adapter will allow Scribe customers to configure, without coding, integrations to any legacy and commercial applications that expose Web Services Application Programming Interfaces (API). This dramatically expands the scope of endpoints to which Scribe can integrate. Further, it requires only knowledge of Scribe configuration and Web Services concepts to do so.
  • Support for Failover and Disaster Recovery leveraging Microsoft Clustered Server technology provides Scribe users the ability to automatically switch to a redundant or standby computer server, system, or network upon the failure or abnormal termination of the previously active server, system, or network. This directly supports larger, business critical integrations where downtime and data loss are not tolerated.
  • Earlier versions of Scribe Insight supported 64 bit environments on Windows Server 2003. Scribe Insight 6.5 extends support to Windows Server 2008 64-bit. Because the size and scale of Scribe deployments continues to grow in terms of number of endpoints integrated, size of data sets and scale of linked business applications we are finding our customers are increasingly deploying more 64-bit servers in their data centers.
  • The addition of Windows Authentication to access Scribe's internal database responsible for error logging, integration settings, cross reference tables, and important integration statistics increases the security of the Scribe solution and allows it to comply with increasingly tighter Information Technology Security policies in larger enterprises.

"In addition to the four major features sets targeted at enterprise customers, our latest release adds a number of features targeted at general flexibility/usability," commented Scribe's Vice President of Products, Robert Sturim. "These new features were directly requested, and voted on, by our partners and customers through our product feedback portal OpenMind. Our commitment to tailoring our solution to our partners and customers is underscored by OpenMind and the process through which we are constantly listening."

"The acceptance of Scribe as an integration solution for larger enterprises is evident in our usage at Bank of America, US Airways, ING, Bosch, Fidelity, Nortel among many others," commented Scribe Chief Executive Officer Mark Prestipino. "Because our solution is highly functional and scalable integrating 1000+ seat business application installations with increasingly large data sets is becoming the rule rather than the exception at Scribe. Our latest release further extends our ability to serve these larger customers."

Tim Nugiel, Manager of Business Systems at Equinox Fitness, uses Scribe to integrate Equinox's business applications including Microsoft Dynamics CRM. "With all the pre-baked functionality within Scribe, it's just point and click. Just to handle the amount of data feeds we're dealing with we would have to hire at least two or three additional people. Instead, Scribe allows us to put it on autopilot -- it automatically manages the information exchange between our systems." Nugiel said.

John Snead, Director of Beer Operations at Karl Strauss Brewing Company, selected Scribe to integrate their Salesforce CRM application with their Microsoft Dynamics GP back office system. "Scribe automatically captures orders from Salesforce and seamlessly integrates the order into Dynamics GP in a matter of seconds," Snead said.

Onity, a leading manufacturer of locks for the hospitality lodging industry, integrates their data seamlessly from Microsoft Dynamics CRM directly into Microsoft Dynamics NAV. "We see Scribe as the 'glue' tying all our information together and providing us with a complete picture of every customer, every opportunity."
