In this case study, we will explore how our custom integration solution successfully automated the contact porting process between Sage 200 Evolution and Active Campaign email marketing software. The client was facing challenges in manually adding, editing, and deleting customers in Active Campaign whenever changes occurred in their Sage Evolution ERP system. This resulted in time-consuming and error-prone tasks, leading to incomplete data porting. Our custom integration solution provided an efficient and accurate way to automate this process, ensuring seamless synchronization of customer data between the two systems.
Current Process & Problems:
The client's current process involved manually adding, editing, and deleting customers in Active Campaign whenever changes occurred in their Sage Evolution ERP system. This manual approach resulted in several challenges and inefficiencies:

- Inconsistent data porting: Manually updating Active Campaign based on changes in Sage Evolution led to inconsistencies and errors. Not all customers were being ported to Active Campaign, causing incomplete and inaccurate customer data in the email marketing software.
- Manual data entry: The user had to manually enter specific fields such as FirstName, LastName, Phone, Email, CompanyName & Group, and Lead from Sage Evolution to Active Campaign. This manual data entry process was prone to errors and added to the overall workload.
