SLX Sync Manager

Status: New
by Bronze Elite Contributor on ‎01-27-2011 10:08 AM

I have just come across the below product which I think would be great built in to SalesLogix!  

I have lost count the number of times customers ask me if Sage SalesLogix has the ability to notify specified recipient(s) if an error occurs or if the sync server stops running.

Unless you watch the Sync Monitor Console 24/7 you only tend to find out there is an issue when users start screaming!

We did this w/TaskCentre "years" ago.. it's called "SyncLogix" ;-)

You just need the "basic" TaskCentre package to do it.... and you now have a tool that can be used for a lot of other things. The other solution is not inexpensive.. it's hard-coded.. and a "point" solution. Not a good way to spend/invest $$$ (or pounds/euros) these days. Much better to have something where you have all the "source" (TC task code) in your hands.

Thanks RJ.


I had raised the idea within this forum in the hope Sage would do something about it, especially as it was someone from SalesLogix PSG in Scottsadale who developed it (Unfortunately, this was back in 2002!)


I know if the price is right we could easily sell the add-on, but at $2,995 for the first sync server we would have no chance..

 I was aware it was developed "in PSG".. and it was on the NA price list for a while. It seemed to not provide much more features/capabilities than the free one Mike did a while back. It "reports".. and that is basically it. Just not worth the $3k usd.. maybe $500 at most.


With the TaskCentre approach you can actually take action (ex: detect and restart "hung" sync servers.. and more).
