Overview

Our one-way interface with Dinerware allows Yellow Dog Inventory to pulls sales data from the Dinerware API to reduce inventory.

Sync Approach

Yellow Dog's sync with Dinerware can be scheduled as often as every 30 minutes or as seldom as once a day, although by default it will be scheduled to run at the top of every hour during business hours.

Requirements

Client

TBD

POS Partner

We require a web service URL that can be found in the Dinerware Brain's Pool View as "External WCF".

Data Exchange and Mapping

Sales Data

Yellow Dog's sync with Dinerware pulls sales data only and uses the Dinerware API.

Item Data

TBD

System Codes

Yellow Dog Inventory does not pull codes or push any item or code data to Dinerware.

Additional Information

Revenue Center 0 is the default for sales in Dinerware when they are not assigned to a specific revenue center. The Yellow Dog sync can be configured to assign all Revenue Center 0 sales to a specific store.

Limitations

  1. Yellow Dog Inventory does not pull codes or push any item or code data to Dinerware.

  2. The Dinerware API does not currently provide data on modifiers/choices and therefore Yellow Dog cannot track sales of these items.

  3. Pulling sales data for more than a single day will pull sales data for all time and cause an error in the sync. This is a Dinerware bug that has been resolved with Dinerware v3.7.

Other Notes

Implementation

This sync may be run from anywhere with access to the web service URL and must be configured to point to that URL.

Please note that the Dinerware Brain must be on when the sync runs.
