Missing Link Technology partners with Quinn & Associates
Thursday, April 15, 2010
Austin, TX , 13 April 12, 2010 – Missing Link Technology is pleased to announce Quinn & Associates in Altoona, Pennsylvania as the first partner to fully deploy its Preactor/AX adapter. Quinn & Associates Inc. is the North American Network Partner for Preactor planning and scheduling software. This integration application provides a sophisticated tool for managing the interface between Dynamics AX and Preactor’s Advanced Production Planning and Scheduling Software.

Although there are several Preactor adapters that allow it to connect many different systems, there has not been any official adapter for Dynamics AX up until now. Missing Link Technology’s Preactor-Dynamics AX Adapter fills the gap by allowing Preactor and Dynamics AX customers to leverage the power of both products including support for Preactor 11.0 features, custom fields and tables in Dynamics AX, and data mappings into other third-party systems all as part of a single cost-efficient integration solution.

“We are very excited to pioneer the Preactor/AX adapter in the North American market,” says Gregory Quinn, president of Quinn & Associates. “We have seen quite a number of ERP links to Preactor, and we are impressed with both Connectelligence as the underlying technology and the realization of an easy-to-use interface for the adapter. We look forward to expanding the relationship with Missing Link Technology to create new adapters for other ERP system we are in partnership with.”

”The Preactor/Dynamics AX adapter is built on Missing Link Technology’s Connectelligence service bus, which greatly enhances its capabilities, allowing the adapter to connect to an unlimited number of systems in addition to Preactor and Dynamics AX”, says Mark Johansson, CTO of Missing Link Technology. “ The embedded service bus technology packages integration definitions, mappings, and rules into stand-alone programs (Windows Services) which run independently, and can even be edited using Visual Studio. We believe this is the most powerful Preactor integration product on the market today, and is well-positioned to serve the advanced needs of the often highly customized Dynamics AX marketplace.”

The features of the Preactor/AX Adapter include:
  • Real-time integration
  • Support for the Preactor v10.0, 11.0 (soon-to-be-released), Dynamics AX4.0, 2009.
  • Based on patented Connectelligence integration software
  • Built-in Enterprise Service Bus with support for MSMQ messaging.
  • Real-time systems monitoring.
  • Support for connections to other disparate systems as part of the integration.
  • Support for extremely high sustained transaction throughput levels.
  • Highly customizable, including the ability to edit the .NET source code in Visual Studio.
