RedTail Solutions, a vendor of hosted supply-chain software for electronic data interchange (EDI) and data synchronization, has integrated its applications with the latest release, version 10.0, of Microsoft's MS Dynamics GP (Great Plains), a mid-market accounting software system. Offered under a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model, RedTail's technology, through the vendor's RedTail Transaction Manager, handles all order-to-cash transactions between trading partners and manufacturers and distributors using MS Dynamics GP. The offering extends business-process integration while enhancing collaboration, capabilities for which have been augmented in the latest release of MS Dynamics GP. Version 10.0 contains advanced search capabilities extending from GP to the MS Office environment, expanded reporting options through SQL Server, and the ability to automate workflows. The new version embraces the look and feel of Office 2007 and the Vista operating system, RedTail said. The vendor developed its new product in partnership with Binary Stream Software. Through the SaaS platform, EDI purchase orders can be seamlessly moved to MS Dynamics GP sales orders. Once the items are shipped, information is passed to the RedTail Transaction Manager to generate and transmit the EDI invoice to the trading partner.
