Provide link to vendors such as Volvo, Mercury, Yanmar, Suzuki
Idea shared by Frank B Austin - 8/14/2022 at 10:09 AM
Under Consideration
Other POS/Inventory/Service order programs are offering the ability to link to vendors sites and pick parts and create orders that fall within the program so automatically ordering, checking inventory etc. In addition it automatically updates Atrex prices directly from the vendor. Is there any thought of adding this capability?

The quick answer is yes, we have had others inquire about capabilities like this.  The reality of it came down to it being technically feasible, but not practical as out of the box functionality.  With each vendor having it's own API we would basically end up doing a completely separate integration with each and every vendor to get it functioning and  after that we would need to potentially do ongoing maintenance to keep each integration up to date as the vendors make changes to the APIs.

We could potentially do a couple as custom projects getting them to work exactly as you want them, but I wouldn't expect this to be a general build in function of the package anytime soon.
