In the new world, businesses are finding the advantages of implementing ERP-driven Enterprise eCommerce platforms. ERP integrated Enterprise eCommerce solutions help companies to manage their eCommerce front end with minimum effort.
ERP and eCommerce are two entirely different solutions. Though designed for totally different purposes, they do share some common entities and have some entities that are unique to that software.
This means that when the ERP and the Enterprise level eCommerce solutions are integrated, the data available in ERP like Customers, Items, Prices, available quantities can be updated on the eCommerce site. Similarly, Sales Orders placed by the customers on the eCommerce site can also be downloaded from the eCommerce to the ERP.
Though this kind of integration is better than not having an integration, it is still a partial integration. x2x eCommerce is different because it not only integrates the common entities between the ERP and eCommerce systems but also adds the missing features in the ERP which are required to create a complete integration. For example, x2x eCommerce adds features like Product Catalog, Parent and Child Products, Attributes and Variants, SEO-related information like meta keyword, meta tags, and eCommerce product type in Microsoft Dynamics GP.
