Would you like to integrate Microsoft Dynamics with your Magento eCommerce store? The good news is, with a little planning, this can be done fairly easily. What’s more, it’s also one of the best things you can do for your business right now.
Why Integrate Magento With Microsoft Dynamics?
In any eCommerce business, the backend is where the real magic happens, providing the critical information you need to run and grow your business.
The trouble is, things become messy when you have multiple systems – like Microsoft Dynamics and Magento – that hold the same information but aren’t integrated with each other.
Without integration, you’ll needlessly waste time on tedious data entry tasks. You’ll also make it harder to access important information and increase the possibility of duplication and human error.
That’s why you should integrate Magento and Microsoft Dynamics.
With the two systems communicating with each other in near real-time, all your data will be automatically synced across your ERP and eCommerce store, providing access to more accurate and timely information while improving the customer experience.
Just imagine – no more manually transferring data from one system to the other or wasting time searching for information. You’ll also be able to more easily gain access to key business insights, making it easier to identify trends and opportunities.
Integrating Magento and Microsoft Dynamics
As ERP integration experts, we have a wealth of experience in connecting Magento with Microsoft Dynamics.
Before you begin, there are some important things to think about to ensure a smooth and successful integration.
1. Set key objectives
What do you want to achieve through the integration? For example, you might be branching out into B2B sales or omnichannel selling. It is vital that the integration supports the overall goals of the business, so make sure to think carefully about those objectives and identify the workflows that support them.
2. Document processes and identify data
By analysing your processes and workflows, you should be able to identify the data that should be used in the integration. This can include key data like inventory, product data, order and shipment information. For each item of data, you should evaluate where it should reside and by who, what and when it will be used. Don’t forget to involve key stakeholders as they can provide useful insights and contributions.
3. Consider infrastructure requirements
Consider how the integration will run – for example, on-site or through the cloud. You will need to ensure that infrastructure is up to the job of coping with current and future data volume. Also, think about the compatibility of any third-party software you plan to use.
4. Choose the right ERP integration partner
Unless you have the internal resources to handle it, you’ll probably be looking to find an experienced partner to plan and implement your Magento-Microsoft Dynamics connection.
