What is Ex-Commerce: Ocean?
Ex-Commerce: Ocean provides fully integrated e-commerce with orders written directly into Advanced Exchequer as sales quotations or sales orders respecting customer currency types, discount matrix and credit control as part of its standard core features.
It is one of the only e-commerce solutions designed specifically for Advanced Exchequer
Unlike other e-commerce platforms that exchange limited data with numerous other accounting packages, Ex-Commerce: Ocean has been designed exclusively around the way Advanced Exchequer works.
Advanced Exchequer customers who use other e-commerce systems live with the pain and frustration of rounding differences and fudges to try and reconcile web orders to the accounts.
With Ex-Commerce: Ocean there are no rounding differences and all discounts precisely match; whether it is in single currency or multi-currencies. No other system can match this decimal precision.
Ex-Commerce: Ocean Integration
All price bands, discounts and customer settings are synchronised as a fully automated process.
Our Advanced Exchequer integrated e-commerce solution will automatically synchronise your online shop with your Advanced Exchequer in near real-time. As you change product information such as stock levels, pricing, discounts, customers and more in Advanced Exchequer – these changes will automatically be transferred to your online shop. When a new customer registers on the website and successfully makes a payment their details will be transferred into Advanced Exchequer each with their own unique account code. Orders taken will also be transferred to the Advanced Exchequer sales order daybook reflecting their account status and all relevant discounts.
Extending your Advanced Exchequer investment
The Ex-Commerce: Ocean Advanced Exchequer integration extends your investment in Advanced Exchequer in many different ways:
- Dramatically reduce order processing time
- Eliminate human data entry errors
- Trade customers create their own orders
- Sales reps can create an order for any account
- Advanced Exchequer customer discounts synchronised
Unlike any other product, it is a fully functional task managed scheduler that executes task threads to process data at lightning speeds. Tests have shown that 200 orders can be input into Advanced Exchequer in 15 seconds.
There are no text files or XML or temporary documents to worry about. As long as there is a network connection between the web server and data server the system works. When connectivity is lost the orders are queued up on the webserver and are downloaded on the next polling.
Ex-Commerce: Ocean is the only fully-featured, hosted enterprise solution that is designed specifically to integrate seamlessly with your Advanced Exchequer accounting system. Ex-Commerce is fully compatible with both the SQL and Pervasive editions of Advanced Exchequer.
Fully automated synchronisation
Automated synchronisation with Advanced Exchequer includes all stock discounts, customer discounts, quantity breaks and all other forms of discount. Stock quantities are synchronised in near real-time to minimise overlap selling. Orders can be placed by trade customers, retail customers or even your own reps in a B2B style environment.
Stock quantity control
As items are sold on the website all stock quantities available are updated so you can’t sell the same stock twice.
Fully automated customer account codes
New customers details are automatically transferred to Advanced Exchequer when they meet the criteria you set, with unique sequential customer codes that are automatically assigned to their Advanced Exchequer account. As customer details change so too are the changes synchronised both ways between the webshop and their account in Advanced Exchequer.

Your customers start placing orders which automatically appear in Advanced Exchequer
Once synchronised you can open up shop and start taking orders online and watch as they are automatically transferred into your Advanced Exchequer.
Ex-Commerce: Ocean is comprised of two main components. A data transfer engine and a web system. The data transfer engine sits on a server on the customer’s network alongside Advanced Exchequer and runs import/export routines on a timed schedule. The web system sits on a dedicated fully hosted and supported web server and manages the ordering process.
Ex-Commerce: Ocean has a fully functional task managed scheduler that executes the different tasks in a multi-thread mode to process data at lightning speeds. Tests have shown that many hundreds of orders can be input into Advanced Exchequer in seconds.
There are none of the traditional and unreliable text files, CSV, XML, temporary documents or emails because the data transfer is direct from Advanced Exchequer’s database to the web system’s database via the Ex-Commerce: Ocean data transfer engine. In other words database to database. If and when connectivity is lost due to general internet fluctuations or outages, data transfers and orders are queued up on the webserver and are downloaded on the next polling.
Ex-Commerce: Ocean will work with either the Microsoft SQL Server or Oracle MySQL out of the box. It requires a COM toolkit licence and for the Pervasive edition of Advanced Exchequer, it requires an ODBC licence. If not already supplied these can be purchased through Advanced Business Solutions. Additionally, it can also be customised to write to any other database system.

Integration is what Ex-Commerce: Ocean is all about
Advanced Exchequer allows users to set up variable discount structures and price banding on both customers and stock levels. Add to this the additional layers of currency and variable Tax per item it creates a complex discount matrix that other e-commerce systems simply cannot cope with. We have developed the Ex-Commerce: Ocean Advanced Exchequer integration to fully replicate all the functionality of Advanced Exchequer, it will automatically synchronise all the pricing, discounts, tax, and currency variations to your e-commerce shop with 100% accuracy.
Customer accounts are an important part of the system and Ex-Commerce: Ocean will automatically transfer new customer accounts into Advanced Exchequer each with their own unique customer account code which fully conforms with Advanced Exchequer so both the web system and Advanced Exchequer use the same account reference. In addition to this, multiple departments or staff within a single organisation can be assigned to the same account in Advanced Exchequer making it the only fully integrated B2B and B2C solution on the market.
