PRESSERO > *Integration information & Supported Services

Order Data Integration

The purpose of this document is to outline the structural requirements to successfully transfer order and customer information from Aleyant Pressero to a given instance of EFI PrintSmith.

Integration Foundation

  • This integration will facilitate communication between the two platforms.
  • Pressero retrieves order information and generates Invoice, Items, Contacts and Shipment entries in EFI PrintSmith system.
  • In the event of a network error, Pressero automatically retries the last synchronization action.

Integration Requirements

  • All critical customer and order data are transferred to EFI PrintSmith via API.
  • Items will be reviewed for approval status state; any items of an order with Request Denied will not be included in the order in EFI PrintSmith.
  • All order item information and production files (if available) will transfer to an EFI PrintSmith order with parts being created to match each item of the Pressero order immediately after being checked out in Pressero.
  • Kits consist of a parent item containing child products with individual item totals (quantity and cost)
  • Child items in a kit will show up as individual parts in the EFI PrintSmith order
  • Child items in a kit (static and/or inventory items) will list the associated quantity and cost
  • Child items in a kit with a quantity of zero will not be entered into the order in EFI PrintSmith

Enable Integration for Site

  • Go to Site > Embedded Services > Enable Integration

  • Select "Enable Service Integration"
 

General Workflow

Integration Parameters

  • Server URL: The URL for EFI PrintSmith instance (for example: http://PrintSmithinstance.com). Only root domain name needed
  • Key: the API key which will be used for authorization in EFI PrintSmith API
  • Email for alerts: list of email addresses, separated by ‘;’ which will be used for notifications and errors
  • Default Contact: default value for “Contact ID”; this value will be used if Pressero cannot identify customer

Customer Mapping Details

Customer Identification scenario:
  • If Pressero Store Front “Integration ID” is not empty, then this value is used for “Account ID” in EFI PrintSmith.
  • Pressero checks “Account ID” in list of EFI PrintSmith’s accounts.
  • If “Account ID” is not valid (not found in external system or inactive):
    • specified value will be ignored
    • notify user/users specified in parameter “Email for alerts” about invalid “Customer ID” in settings
  • If “Account ID” is empty, then Pressero tries to identify customer with contact information:
  • tries to identify contact by email EFI PrintSmith
  • if contact is found and it is unique, then extract “Account ID”
  • if several contacts found, then check that all of them match to the same customer.
  • if all contacts relate to the same customer, then extract “Account ID”
  • if contacts relate to different customers, then raise error and notify user/users specified in Parameter “Email for alerts” that customer could not be identified
  • if no contacts are found, then create new customer and contact (check Customer and Contact Mapping section below)
  • Identify contacts for each unique shipment location:
  • Key contain: email, all mapped address segments and shipping method
  • If contact is not found, then create new contact (check customer and contact mapping section below)
  • If contact cannot be created and parameter “Default Contact” is not null, then this value is used for “Contact ID” in EFI PrintSmith.
  • Customer and contact mapping details:

Custom messages

Pressero sends special email notifications during the integration process:
1.       If Pressero creates a new contact in PrintSmith system:
SUBJ: INFORM – New Contact Created in MIS System
A new contact was created from an online order for;
"Pressero Site Name"
Online order Reference: "Pressero web_reference_number": xxx
Contact "Pressero first_name" "Pressero last_name"
Email: "Pressero email"
Ensure this contact is set up in the "Pressero Site Name" site with the correct contact Integration ID and correctly set up in the MIS system.
2.       If Pressero creates new account and contact in PrintSmith system:
SUBJ: INFORM – New Account and Contact created in MIS System
A new Account and Contact was created from an online order for;
"Pressero Site Name" 
"Pressero Contact Name" 
Online order Reference: "web reference number": xxx
because no matching account, contact, or email was found in the MIS System.
Ensure the account has the MIS Account ID setup in Pressero for the Site Integration ID. Verify the Contact Integration ID is assigned in Pressero, and setup in the MIS.
3.       If Pressero can’t identify company or contact in PrintSmith system:
SUBJ: ORDER ERROR – Missing Contact Integration ID, or Missing Contact
"Pressero Site Name"
Online Order Reference: "web reference number": XXX
Contact Name: "Pressero Contact Name"
Your online system was not able to match the contact referenced in the order. This is most likely because the Pressero Contact Integration ID field was blank, or the contact is missing from PrintSmith. Please resolve this and reprocess the order.
4.       If Pressero cannot retrieve list of companies or contacts from PrintSmith system:
SUBJ: ORDER ERROR – Cannot connect with MIS Platform
Online Order Reference: "web reference number": XXX from "Pressero Site Name"
Pressero was not able to connect to the MIS platform and get the contact list to process the order. This may be temporary. Recommend you resubmit the order from Pressero again.

Technical specification

Pressero uses HTTP REST API to communicate with EFI PrintSmith; it needs direct access to both systems.
