NAVISION SOAP/REST API INTEGRATION with Magento 2 & extension | Part 1

Introduction

Efficient centralization has become a necessary step in the evolution of any eCommerce business. The average company loses significant sums of money on a daily basis through leaks, inefficient operations, human error and fragmented business aspects. What is the reason behind this? Most operate with disconnected Enterprise Resource Planning and eCommerce data entry systems, resulting in bad information flow, problems with double data entry, inaccurate inventory levels, extensive manual input and, hence, the possibility for error.

It is unsurprising that our clients want to solve these issues and turn to Scandiweb for a solution - NAVISION integration with Magento 2. In this case study, we will take a look at Exchanged data (Products, Customers, Orders, Statuses etc.), workflows, features and business goals
