Magento – As an eCommerce Front with Odoo
Let’s say an enterprise has been using both the platforms for Magento as eCommerce manager and Odoo as ERP/CRM. Here comes the Magento – Odoo connector in the picture, as the manual data entry is not the best practice to follow and it becomes impossible when the data becomes complex and there is more data to handle.
The connector funnels up all the data that is to be exchanged and hence saves greater human effort due to its automated bi-directional data exchange. Automated data transfer saves a lot of time and provides a real-time updation among the platforms.
The integration helps in Order, Product & Stock management, importing/exporting data of customers, inventory, and invoice data.
The generic connector will surely help with the above-mentioned process and features like
– Basic Import/Export operations
– Product & Stock sync
– Order management with automated generated order on ERP with cancel order functionality
A basic default-built Magento – Odoo connector module with behaving these features but that is not enough to fulfill a trouble-free and streamline flow between these platforms.
The common Challenge with Magento – Odoo connector
If you are using any pre-built app for Magento – Odoo integration, you might not be able to update the Order once it is confirmed. Hence, the preferable and advised route is to retire the pre-built modules and make your own custom-built connector which is specifically made for your requirements.
The issue with the existing modules is that it is not capable of handling confirmed order updates. And hence, the company would be paying more for the features that are not tailored as per their flow, yet lacking, and thus have to indirectly change the traditional process flow.
Therefore, in order to save resources and time, an enterprise should always opt for a module that is built especially to handle much more advanced use cases, rather than wrongly paying for apps that are not enough to fulfill every requirement.
The solution is to consult an Expert Odoo Implementation Team having adequate knowledge of Odoo and other platforms for integration and also have done similar custom connections for these platforms.
