The interface with Squirrel supports a 1-Way integration where Yellow Dog Inventory reads sales data directly from the Squirrel database.

Sync Frequency

This sync can be scheduled to run at any frequency, but will be scheduled at the top of each hour during business hours by default.


Yellow Dog Requirements

The following is required from Squirrel in order to ensure that sales data synchronizes correctly:

  • Read-only login credentials to the Squirrel database.
  • Squirrel database server address and port.
  • Squirrel database name.

Back Office Setup Requirements

The existing Squirrel items and modifiers may need to be reconfigured so that the proper item is listed in the sales information and can be mapped to reduce the correct inventory items. Yellow Dog can review your setup prior to your acceptance of the proposal to identify what you and your Squirrel team will need to do to allow our inventory system to work properly.

Data Exchange

Importing Sales Data

Yellow Dog's sync can be run from any location that can access the Squirrel database.
