WordPress

For smaller boutique ecommerce websites, we recommend the use of WordPress as the content management system. It’s lightweight and very easy to use.

For developers, the back end is extremely customisable, so you can still integrate with all the popular third-party platforms and create a solid business network.

Magento 2

For larger scale ecommerce websites, we recommend the use of Magento. Magento is the most popular open source ecommerce content management system in the world. It’s a proper developer’s platform which means it can be customised beyond your imagination and integrated in to almost any platform that has an API to interact with.

Some of the popular Magento integrations are below:

Point of Sale Integrations

Ecommerce websites are a great way of selling products without the overheads of a bricks and mortar store. But sometimes the biggest headaches are brought to a company’s attention when they have their new website built and then they find that they have to double handle stock management between their shop fronts and the website.

This is typically solved with an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution. To find out more about ERP system integrations, read more about ERP integrations here. The ERP system would sync all data between the website and POS system. However, most of the time the two don’t really talk or talk well, and you could run in to problems depending on the systems used.

To solve this, we have created a great solution networking POS system directly in to websites, along with accounting systems and also ERP systems.
