Every HeadlightTM account includes a secure FTP dropbox for receiving customer, delivery and product information. The Headlight Data BridgeTM checks your dropbox every night and performs a “smart synchronization”.

  • adds new contacts to Headlight
  • removes lost contacts from Headlight
  • updates product prices, product quantities and delivery history
  • sends completion email to the Headlight administrator

Instead of simply overwriting the data – which wouldn’t be smart – it adds new contacts, removes lost contacts and intelligently updates existing contacts. This ensures delivery information always matches the billing system, but without the hassle of manually importing files.
