How to connect Cin7 Omni

Safely connect your Cin7 Omni account to Wink in 4 steps:

  1. under the Cin7 API Setup menu, copy the API Username and generate your Cin7 Omni API key; 
  2. set permissions for Wink;
  3. paste the username and key into the Wink connection form, and click Save.

That’s it - your Cin7 Omni and Wink accounts are now integrated.

Here’s a step-by-step guide:

Create API keys by logging in to Cin7 Omni and visiting the API Setup page.

Your historical data

Once connected, the first thing we do is import your historical data to power features like: tracking seasonal demand trends and setting targets based on past performance. If you’ve been operating for several years, this first import will take some time but:

  • it only happens once;
  • we don’t charge for it; and
  • you can log out while it happens.

We’ll let you know when your data is ready to be turned into business intelligence for you and your team.
