I understand technology but I am not a developer. I am researching different open source e-commerce solutions as well as open source ERP systems for my small business. I am interested in Magento connecting to OpenERP where the web hosting is outsourced but the ERP system is in house. I have found posts about Smile OpenERP Synchro but I am unclear if it performs the functions local or if remote/secure communications can be used. Any help/advice for a small business would be appreciated.
Since Magento 1.1.x, you can access to the platform through the API.
Using web services it’s possible to access to products and categories.
I’m starintg soon with that kind of integration. At this time, that’s all that I can tell you.
