Installing an ERP like Sage is a crucial step for growing online businesses. ERPs are necessary tools to help manage inventory, purchasing and financial reporting. Even though necessary, adding another system to your technology stack complicates your business processes.
Instead of just working out of your eCommerce system like Magento, you now must worry about sharing that same data from Magento to Sage and vice-versa. This often requires you to hand-key online orders, inventory counts and shipping/tracking data between the two. Even during normal selling times, manual data entry can take employees several hours daily, slow down processes, and be error-prone.
When considering implementing an ERP like Sage, it’s important to consider how it will integrate with Magento. Integration eliminates manual data entry to ensure operational efficiency and data integrity across your organization. This article will provide a quick comparison of Sage’s various products and the best way to integrate with Magento. (more…)

Internet Retailer recently reported: Wal-Mart grows global web sales 30% in 2013 and projects similar growth this year. It is no secret that the world’s largest retailers like Wal-Mart rely on a tightly woven web of automation to process every business transaction. Their value-chain network includes manufacturers, suppliers, logisticians, warehouses, distributors, physical stores and websites. This intricate web is made up of thousands of system integrations linking customer-facing kiosks, websites and mobile shopping apps with company-facing POS, ERP, SCM, CRM, HRM, financial systems and custom business applications.
