CartSpan for Peachtree


CartSpan is an easy-to-use bi-directional interface for Peachtree Accounting that will import orders from VPASP and update item prices and quantities-on-hand in the cart. This frees you of the burden of re-keying order information in the accounting system and helps prevent the over-committing of inventory to Web customers.

Though built expressly for Peachtree, you can use CartSpan to produce a well-formed CSV file suitable for mapping to other accounting systems.

CartSpan overcomes some of the common challenges experienced with exporting orders from VPASP, which include: price determination of bundled sub-items, and the parsing of the second address line for billing and shipping addresses.

The CartSpan integration utilizes server-side PHP scripting and direct SQL calls to the retrieve order information; so, performance could not be any faster!

Best of all, CartSpan is offered on a 'Try Before You Buy' basis, so you can feel confident about your investment.

Order Download/Import:  CartSpan has been stress-tested against a well-established ASP.NET commercial platform and performs very well for large order volumes. A sample of 100 single-item orders (pre-existing item; same customer for all) was downloaded in approximately 60 seconds. Performance utilizing the mySQL/xNIX back-end is estimated to be 4x faster. All 100 orders were effectively processed during a continuous import in approximately 13 minutes on a Dell XPS M1730 workstation (Core 2 Duo @ 2.4 GHz). Expect slightly less than double import times on less capable machines when a new customer record is being created for each order.

Item Price/Quantity Upload:  CartSpan has been stress-tested against an implementation of another well-established open-source cart utilizing the mySQL/xNIX platform. Over 10,000 items were successfully exported from Peachtree and uploaded to the cart via a single call to the supporting PHP script.
