APIs often undergo changes and updates, and it's our job to ensure that these changes don't disrupt your workflow. This means you can always benefit from the latest features and improvements from both Dynamics 365 Business Central and API Sūti.lv SIA.

The API Sūti.lv SIA and Dynamics 365 Business Central integration provides a comprehensive set of capabilities, including Transportation Price Requests, Transportation Orders, Data exchange log, Packaging labels, Tracking. All of these data exchanges with API Sūti.lv SIA are seamlessly integrated directly into your Dynamics 365 Business Central system, enhancing the overall functionality and convenience.

The integrations with carriers, just like the API Sūti.lv SIA integration, are always developed and maintained in-house by our dedicated Cargoson team; these integrations are our utmost priority. For the connection between Cargoson and ERPs like Dynamics 365 Business Central, we typically rely on specialized third-party providers.

This strategy allows us to tap into the deep knowledge and expertise of those who specialize in specific ERP systems. While we are the developers of Cargoson and naturally handle all carrier API integrations in-house, we recognize that we can't be specialists in every ERP platform out there.

In addition, many of these ERP integrations are built in close cooperation with our existing customers. This ensures that they are not only thoroughly tested, but also designed to meet the practical requirements of real businesses in their day-to-day operations. This way, we guarantee robust, reliable, and efficient integrations for you to use.

Absolutely! Cargoson's architecture is built to be carrier-agnostic, meaning that it's capable of integrating with a wide range of carriers, not just API Sūti.lv SIA. As long as the carrier has an API we can work with (or EDI, or even just email), you can incorporate their services into your Dynamics 365 Business Central system through our platform. Additionally, we're constantly expanding our roster of carrier integrations based on customer demand and market trends, so you'll always have a rich selection of carriers to choose from.

Rest assured, data security is our top priority at Cargoson. Your API Sūti.lv SIA API keys are securely encrypted in the Cargoson database. However, it's important to note that as your data originates from Dynamics 365 Business Central and then is sent to API Sūti.lv SIA, we are not in full control over how these systems handle your data. Nevertheless, both Dynamics 365 Business Central and API Sūti.lv SIA are trusted platforms with robust security measures in place.

We might already have a solution for either the Dynamics 365 Business Central or the API Sūti.lv SIA side that might cover your need. If not, and the feature would be beneficial for other businesses as well, it could potentially be added free of charge. However, for features specific to your business, we can agree on a development cost.
