Wondering how to automate the transactions between your Microsoft Dynamics ERP & Magento Store? Check out this Magento Connector for Microsoft Dynamics NAV article to know more.
What is Magento?
Magento is an opensource eCommerce platform which empowers thousands of retailers and brands with the best eCommerce platform and flexible cloud solutions to rapidly innovate and grow. Magento was the second biggest ecommerce platform in 2017 with a 9 percent of overall global ecommerce market share.
What is Microsoft Dynamics NAV?
Microsoft Dynamics NAV is an enterprise resource planning (ERP) software suite for midsize organizations. The system offers specialized functionality for manufacturing, distribution, government, retail, and other industries. It comes with the on-premise version as well as cloud version called Dynamics365.
eCommerce is the new way of selling products. Business owners use Magento or similar eCommerce platforms because it is flexible and customizable to use. On the other side, Microsoft Dynamics NAV is an ideal choice for SME ERP to manage back-office operations like Purchase, Inventory Management, Accounting, etc.
Though quite often we see that both the environments work separately. But imagine getting the eCommerce data directly from your ERP system and online order data going back to your ERP system without any manual effort, would save you a lot of time and money.
So how do we make these two ( Magento and Microsoft Dynamics NAV ) systems talk to each other and do automated data transfer?
