Millennium integrated apparel retail chain Overland Sheepskin's Microsoft Commerce Server web site
with their back end Linux based Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system.
The work was done using Microsoft BizTalk 2006 and Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS). BizTalk and SSIS make integration with multiple data sources easier
and allows you to connect diverse systems on different platforms seamlessly. We were able to
synchronize the inventory and orders between the front end web site and the back office systems. Orders taken on the web site are loaded into the ERP system in real time.
Inventory is also synchronized between the web site and the ERP system so that inventory updated in either system is reflected on the other system. [Top]
Content Management Systems
Millennium is currently working on a major extranet site for Cambridge Investment Research, Inc., one of the countries most innovative broker-dealers.
The site uses the EPiServer Content Management System (CMS) and is designed to give authors the ability to add content and customize the site without developer assistance.
Millennium developed an installation and maintenance application for
Inc. ,a large multi-national elevator
manufacturer that allows users to view
and update time critical data from their BlackBerrys and from their desktops. The system uses Microsoft's Model-View-Controller (MVC) software
to make it easier to make layout and design changes for mobile and desktop devices without impacting back end coding.
It also uses Software Oriented Architecture (SOA) to improve security and maintainability of the software to reduce maintenance costs.
Millennium integrated Amazon.Com with Overland.Com, allowing
this apparel retailer to maintain inventory and sell products on its own store and on
Amazon simultaneously. The system uses a Windows Application
developed in C# and Amazon's Merchant Transport Utility to
synchronize the inventory between Amazon and Overland. We also developed multi-channel sales of Overland products by integrating Overland with Shopzilla
and Google. [Top]
