I attended a webinar today hosted by Touchstone’s Dominic Houlbrooke-Bowers, about Smart Connect for Dynamics GP
There are two ways to summarise this product from this demo (i’ve not yet read more);
Replacement for integration manager using eConnect to enforce the busines rules, providing a richer and much faster experience than integration manager.
A power user graphical user interface for eConnect
It has some very powerful extra features too like push from internet placed excel or info path forms to web services and into GP.
