Why an ERP for Magento ?

Magento is a great platform for managing products and sales; however, once an order is placed you are left with the problem of how to manage the fulfillment process.

Magento users need a solution to manage inventory, process your resupply purchases, and order fulfillment, which is where Embedded ERP comes in.

Unless you process only a few orders a month, the workload of manually handling the supply chain will consume much of your business management time and leave you little time to optimize your purchasing or to increase your sales.

External softwares (SAP, Open ERP, Dynamics, Dolibarr, Sage, Ebp, Cegid, Divalto, ...)

Standalone ERP software offers many features, and usually includes accounting functionality. Most of the time, standalone software is proprietary, which makes customization expensive or impossible, and you have to work with the company's authors to add new features. Some standalone solutions like Open ERP, which as the name alludes to, are open source solutions, but they are the exception rather than the rule.

Connecting Magento to standalone ERP software requires a bridge or connector. Once Magento is connected to the Standalone ERP, you must then depend upon synchronization between the 2 databases of products, customers, orders, and stocks. This synchronization create additional complexity and can fail when either Magento, your standalone ERP, or connector API are updated.


Hosted ERP (SAAS) (Lundi matin, Divalto, OpenSI, Everwin)

Hosted ERP systems are similar to standalone software, but unique in the sense that they are also available online, which means that one can avoid local installation, and depend on software and databases that are hosted by the software provider. They are proprietary solutions that impossible to customize. As with external software, you will have to synchronize your data with the Magento database using a bridge or connector.
