Before you can process any order from the Marvin OMS program, the user needs "permissions" to access the data on Marvin servers. There is a permission called Export BackOffice, and it is set up through the Marvin Access System. If you buy from a distributor, you may have to contact their OMS support team.
In addition, the XpressPOS Marvin OMS Module has DLLs that must be manually installed. Please see "How to Manually Register Marvin OMS".
When this is done, you are ready to process orders to your POS/ERP system.
In order for XpressPOS to get the data from Marvin OMS, you must have created an order in the Marvin system. Quote data is not available.
This leads to a dilemma. You do not have a PO number from your POS/ERP system until you import the data, so you cannot convert the quote to an order. In the past you would have to create a "blank" PO in the POS/ERP system, get a PO number, and then enter it into the Marvin system. You would then have to run XpressPOS and import the order into your POS/ERP system then somehow "merge" the data into the "blank" PO.
Marvin has addressed this problem by allowing an order to be created in Marvin without a PO Number. This will allow XpressPOS to "go get the data" and process it to your main system.
After you create a PO in your system, you then go back to the Marvin system and enter your PO number. The Marvin system will then move the order into production.
Please contact your Marvin OMS support contact for help with this procedure: OMSSupport@Marvin.com or 877-846-5728
To process the order using XpressPOS:

When running Marvin, you should have the Summary form option checked (see Options & Settings Marvin General Tab), then the Summary form will appear.
Enter the applicable cost factor and selling factor for the current order.
