University of Sydney's Centre for Veterinary Education

For the University of Sydney’s Centre for Veterinary Education, the need for easy to use .NET based middleware allowed the integration of iMIS® and the Drupal Open Source Content Management System.

"The Metisc mBO WebServices continue to provide a reliable and consistent way of integrating our Drupal website with the iMIS® CRM system"

Matthew Hefernan, CVE Support

Situation

CVE needed to connect their iMIS® CRM with their Drupal website. With over 1200 people attending in person and remote training events annually, CVE need a reliable solution for integrating the web with their iMIS® CRM.

Solution

The solution was to implement the .Net based Metisc mBO WebServices (mBO’s) already proved in three other Veterinary organisations around Australia and New Zealand, allowing rapid deployment of the integrated functionality.

  • iMIS® and the .NET mBO’s run on Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft IIS.
  • The Metisc mBO WebServices provided capabilities for integration including Single Sign-On, Contacts, Events, Sales and Subscriptions.
  • The mBO’s were developed using Microsoft’s .Net and delivering integration capabilities using REST (with JSON or XML) and SOAP (with XML)
  • Drupal is a PHP based Content Management System which uses the .NET mBO’s to connect to iMIS®.
