What ERP systems do you integrate with?
ClearC2, given its premier business partnership status with IBM, has had extensive integration experience with IBM’s customer base (mostly manufacturers) due to the requirement of interfacing with those companies’ ERP systems. Depending on the level/complexity of integration needed, ClearC2 implementers can perform batch mode for simple spreadsheet importing/uploading (using a native import utility) to web services and ODBC connections for real time and bi-directional data transfer. Native toolsets include API, XML and web services. ClearC2 systems can integrate with most ERP systems in the marketplace. In addition, ClearC2 has pre-defined integration points with many of the major ERP systems such as JD Edwards, MAPICS, BPCS, Great Plains, Lawson, etc.
ClearC2 systems can also integrate to many non-ERP back office systems as well such as phone systems (CTI), etc.

What is your recovery procedure if the application goes down?
Database replication to a standby server is recommended in both the SaaS and on-premise models. Multiple web/application servers are used for load balancing and recovery.
For Hosted Model: Recovery procedures are entirely dependent on the type and severity of the application or database error that caused the outage. The support staff at ClearC2 will do one of the following:
- Database Data Corruption – Restore from an incremental backup
- Application Server Error – Switch to the hot backup server, depending on facility
- Datacenter Disaster – Switch users to backup facility hosted by IBM
