Business Challenges

eCommerce is the most modernized way of selling products. eRetail Business owners are free to use Magento as their eCommerce platform because its quickly customizable and flexible to use. On the other hand to control Back Office Operations like Purchase, Inventory Management, Accounting, etc. they use SME ERP Systems like Microsoft Dynamics NAV, though quite often we see that both the environments work separately. Here they miss out on the paybacks of an integrated automated system. Imagine getting the eCommerce data directly from your ERP system without any human interaction, it offers you numerous benefits.

So as we identified Integration is required element, but doing that is a real challenge because eCommerce only consider Sales Process while ERP associates Sales Process with Inventory, Warehouse, Accounting and Purchase Cycle Management.
