The ERP Driver Sync Tool is software that automatically syncs data (like orders, products, customers, and inventory levels) between your Sage ERP X3 financial & inventory software system and your ecommerce website or other applications.

Sync Tool Packages

#1 - CSV or XML to/from FTP

Our ERP Driver Sync Tool moves data into and out of your ERP system using CSV or XML files that are dropped on an FTP directory. It automatically imports sales orders into your ERP. It also exports products, customers, addresses, inventory levels, and shipments from your ERP. It can run as fast as every 1 minute. When exporting data, it can drop only records that change.. or it can batch export an entire table (or both).

#2 - Magento Integration

Our Magento to Sage ERP X3 integration involves two pieces of software: 1) Our ERP Driver Sync Tool that moves data into and out of the ERP system. It communicates with your Magento website through Magento's standard API interfaces. 2) A Magento Extension that extends the capabilities of Magento's APIs to allow us to push and pull data with our sync tool. The extension installs a custom controller file and some additional attribute fields on products, customers, addresses, and orders. This offering is available on recent versions of Magento Community and Magento Enterprise.

#3 - Other Carts / Custom APIs

This option is built on top of our standard offering (option #1). We can configure the Sync Tool to interface with your website‘s custom APIs (using Web Services, REST, HTML form-posts, etc). All integration services are billed hourly, based on the scope required. This option can be considered for:

  • Open-source PHP/MySQL carts like Magento, Zen Cart, VirtueMart, osCommerce, PrestaShop, OpenCart, Interspire, Ubercart, and WP e-Commerce.
  • Cloud-based carts like Volusion, Yahoo! Stores, Miva Merchant, Shopify, and 3DCart.

Pricing Details

This pricing is for package #1 (CSV/XML to FTP). The Magento integration pricing is an add-on price in the Upgrade Options section below. The package #1 pricing includes moving flat files (CSV or XML) to/from an FTP directory that you provide. We will provide sample files layouts for the flat files. The sync tool will automatically translate the data to get it into and out of the Sage ERP X3 financial & inventory software.
