1. EDI channel via FTP.  Product has FTP directory setup, where you expect to pull EDI documents and subdirectories, where you place success report and exceptions EDI results.  EDI settings could be naturally unique per business partner.  Product supports inbound and outbound ftp folders
2. POS transactions and daily sales integration.  If you enable internet connection in your stores (typically required for POS and Retail systems, such as Microsoft RMS, Counterpoint, and others), then you can export from MS SQL Server/MySQL/MS Access/Oracle database of your POS application daily sales results into popular EDI like formats, such as text/CSV file, XML and place the export file into the FTP at your office or retail headquarters, where Dynamics GP is installed.  Alba Spectrum File Transfer Server can take the file from FTP for processing and reporting on the success or exceptions
