Microsoft RMS Integration & customization overview for Consultant
Microsoft understands the problem and currently is in the research mode to select the ISV contractor to write or pick existing third party integration and recommend it as Microsoft-approved solution.
The nature of RMS you have pretty high Inventory count control in Store Operation Manager and Headquarters applications and so from Great Plains side you don't count your inventory and pretty much want your check books to balance as well as have proper GL accounts distribution, based on your Items / Departments matching in Microsoft RMS.
This makes it natural to choose integration on Accounts Receivable level, when you move to Great Plains AR transaction and then post them there.
Another way is to move transactions to Sales Order Processing (SOP) in this case you can synchronize Inventories in RMS and Great Plains (in our opinion this is too luxury solution).
We could help you with tuning AR integration, maintained by Alba Spectrum Technologies. It is written as a collection of SQL Stored procedures, called from Dexterity interface with stores-to-companies mapping without restriction to the number of companies/stores.
