This is a very common case – most of our clients already have an existing trading WooCommerce store and want a way to integrate to their Sage 200 ERP.

We will handle all the integration process for you.

We will first set up a copy of your live website on a test server with the actual live product data.

Then, your Sage 200 provider will have to provide us API access to your Sage 200 ERP test database.

Afterwards, we will set up a test Sage 200 WooCommerce connector that points to the new test WooCommerce site to your test Sage 200 database.

This guarantees that when testing the connection and all the workflow tasks between your WooCommerce website and your Sage 200 ERP system work correctly.

For example. we will check if the WooCommerce SKUs codes exist in Sage 200 or if you sell pack sizes we will also test if the stock unit sizes are present.

All this integration tests, will be managed and carried out by us.
