Importance of ERP integration in ecommerce development
The ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) is an information system that integrates the internal operations of the company; such as production, logistics, distribution, human resources.
ERP integration in an ecommerce automates all processes and operations. It also simplifies the work and collects all the company’s information on the same platform, which saves time and costs.
In Somos Sinapsis, ecommerce agency in Barcelona, we are specialists in making integrations between ERP systems and eCommerce platforms such as Magento (1 and Magento 2) or Prestashop.
ERP integration in eCommerce
Before performing any ERP integration, a few tips should be considered. First, they should make sure that the chosen ERP meets the needs and desires of the customer.
After customizing the ERP purchased, the second step is to check if the e-commerce adapts to the content you want to convey to the users.
The third and last step is synchronization. A bidirectional synchronizer must be found through which ERP gets information from the online store, and vice versa. At the same time, the synchronization must be customizable and configurable only to your company.
