Most of the eCommerce solutions built for Sage like to talk about being “Purpose-Built for Sage” as though “Purpose-Built for Sage” was the Holy Grail of eCommerce solutions.

Today, using tools from Realizable Iman. eBridge or Greytrix it is possible to get deep, near real-time, two-way integration between your Sage ERP, your preferred shopping cart and many other data sources. Imagine the power of using an integration tool that ties your Sage ERP to a world-class eCommerce solution such as Magento, WooCommerce, Shopify, OroCommerce or others. One that allows you to sell products online, products which are not even listed in your Sage Inventory, but are added automatically at time-of-sale; one that can also create the PO to the supplier for the product. Alternatively, one that allows a sales rep to take a custom Excel form into the field and fill it out with the customer and that, upon return to the office, have it automatically flow into Sage as an order. Of course, this assumes that the customer is outside of cellular reach or the sales rep would merely use their Mobile App. What about integrating your POS system or Amazon sales to your ERP? We firmly believe that, with the proper purpose-built integration tool and an appropriate shopping cart, you can grow and manage your business in endless ways making the solution as sophisticated or basic as you like.
