We currently update our Ingram inventory via a Flat file. That process is cumbersome and unreliable. We have access to the Ingram Advanced XML connections. We need a PHP 4 connection to the Ingram inventory XML that can keep our Quantity and Prices accurate.
How it should work.
What this script will do is pull from our products table all Ingram SKUS. It would then post a request via the Ingram XML to grab the updated Quantity Available and the Price. The result will be written to a db table for internal processing. Ingram has a " PNA" (price and availability) method that can be used for this exact purpose. At last check it allows for 50 sku request at a time.
Note: Program should be as fast as possible, as this needs to be run no less than 3 times a day to keep our Ingram inventory up to day.
