Connecting Fast-Weigh to Spectrum Accounting

The primary link between Fast-Weigh and Spectrum accounting is the Spectrum Data Exchange (SDX) module. If your version of Spectrum Accounting does not include the SDX module, please contact Viewpoint, Inc.

Before Spectrum can be integrated with Fast-Weigh, you will need to set up an SDX Authorization ID and create a profile of web services for Fast-Weigh to access.
