Transformation depends on the way businesses satiate the needs of their valuable customers.
Understanding how to do it is a big task.
Presently, e-commerce is at boom. Online business has taken a great jump and this indeed has encouraged usability of open source ecommerce software like Magento and Opencart.
If you are one of those manufacturers who is interested in initiating, expanding and streamlining the ecommerce business, then you’ve come to the right place.
In this blog, we will discuss how ERP integrates with an e-commerce platform like Magento and the advantages of this integration.
Let’s straightaway talk about OptiProERP, an integrated manufacturing ERP solution built on the world-class SAP Business One platform.
With a team of SAP certified consultants, business professionals and technology consultants, OptiProERP endeavors to cater the various discrete manufacturing industries.
For those manufacturers who are already using Magento and require working with ERP, OptiProERP’s team bridges this gap and makes the ERP integration with Magento an easy task. How?
When ERP and e-commerce platform are seamlessly integrated together, it becomes easy for the manufacturers to track the actions of customers. For example, if someone orders 500 units from the e-commerce website, a sales order will get created in the ERP, this will get communicated to the specific customer and the necessary business functions can be completed in a systematic manner.
Benefits of integrating ERP with Magento –
1. No data redundancy – no manual process
When you are using two different software (for example, ERP and Magento) for streamlining your business, integration of the two is always a better option. This minimizes the efforts by encouraging real-time working and data consistency.
Data that customers enter on the online platform is also displayed in the ERP systems. This eliminates double data entry and saves time for the resources.
2. Reduced time to refill inventory
As explained above, online sales will be directly reflected in the ERP software. This makes supply chain easy and streamlined. As soon as you receive an online order, the inventory gets reduced once it is dispatched, at the same time, manufacturers get informed to replenish the inventory. This makes the supply chain quick and efficient.
3. Better customer satisfaction
Customers are well informed about shipment and delivery dates. They can track orders, make payments and add feedback online at their fingertips. Also, customers can pay online through any mode – credit/debit card, PayPal, cheque etc. They can track every stage of order fulfillment. Everything will be shown on your ERP window. What else is required?
4. Reduced errors
When employees re-enter web-based (online) orders in the ERP systems, the risk of errors enhances. Entering wrong shipping address, customer id or losing track of a long stack of orders is a big NO. Magento ERP integration eliminates the possibility of manual data entry errors.
