Hi

We are committing to Magento and will be using an Edinburgh (UK) based developer to design/install etc.

We currently run Microsoft’s Retail Management System (RMS) and will be working towards its integration with Magento.

We would like to hear from anyone out there who may be considering integrating similar EPOS software and share our experiences etc.

Regards
Patrick

Hi Patrick,

This is an area that I’m interested in and am also in the UK.

I don’t have experience of Microsoft RMS (but would like to see it working) but I am very familiar with Cybertill who include a somewhat basic website capability within their system.  However, I am looking at integrating Magento with the Cybertill POS system via a SOAP link which they can supply.

I contacted Microsoft to get more details about RMS but the guy I spoke to didn’t even seem to know what I was talking about!  I’d like to look at integrating Magento with other EPOS systems too as I think that this is going to be a growth area.

How are you getting on so far with your project?

Cheers
Chris

We’re needing to integrate with RMS. As of yet, I haven’t seen it, or managed to find any less wooly documentation than the MS sales stuff which states that there’s a web integrator of sorts.

So I’m definitely declaring interest in seeing this developed. It’s very, very likely that unless someone else has written or started this, that we’ll be writing the module here at our company Orange Bus (UK).

So any help, pointers or anything else will be more than appreciated.

Mike

We have started integrating RMS into our retail and e-commerce environment and would love to see a Magento side of things. We have been using this tool by New West Technologies - Web Integrator. It allows you to import orders via xml and also communicate via an xml/SOAP web service for updating product, customers and images.

Hope this might help.

We’re the lucky Edinburgh web development company who are going to be working on the Magento integration for Bonkers.  Yep, we’re going to be using the New West Technologies Web Integrator.  Would be interested to find out how others are finding it.  The XML integration is the key here and so should be relatively straight forward.

We’re pretty comfortable with running a regular output from Magento on a regular basis (i.e. via a cron job), but need to get our heads around the NWT system enough to find out how it then imports the data to update the RMS inventory and vice versa.

Any ideas so far?

Dan

Dan, Any luck on the integration with Newests Web Integrator?  We’re probably the only company that knows it inside and out and if you’re looking to integrate Magento we’d be the ecommerce company to talk to.  We’re launching our Dispatcher product soon and it will make integrating 3rd party shopping carts much easier than starting from scratch, which is what you’’ve been considering.  Let me know if you’d like to talk more.

I’d appreciate honest view of the software and the services you used.

I’m exploring options to integrate Magento with RMS. Has anybody had any experience with any integration products?

Thanks in advance.

We are VERY familiar with RMS and shopping carts.  Our current integration is with X-cart and we’d love to get this one started for someone.  Understanding how information is transfered between RMS and the website is complex and if you’re not familiar with RMS you’ll get all kinds of errors and pop ups.  We’ll need to do some research on the open API to see what this will take too.  Please give me a call and if there’s enough interest we can get this in the development queue with Kosmos.

Current RMS eCommerce clients:

We have over a 100 RMS eCommerce clients and soon to launch will be the Golden State warriors. 

Take care and enjoy your week!

Hi, we’re about two weeks out from beginning our Beta testing.  Pricing will be similar to our current integration costs (please contact us), but the hosting will probably be more since Magento can be quite a strain on the server resources on a shared environment .

Need an API for Magento to work with MS Dynamic. The kosmoscentral guy claims to have a beta release, but I am unable to reach him. We have only recently switch to Magento to provide our clients with a better system and have a high end client that wishes to make this happen. Hard to push a product like Magento (especially for the price) when you run into restrictions such as this. Worse case we will write one, but if someone has already done so then there is no point. Please contact me if you have any information in regards to this. We are a web design company located in Dallas Pro Web Design Studios and we would be willing to pay for the application if it functions to our clients needs. You can reach me by phone 214-315-5898 or by e-mail sales@dallasprowebdesigners.com
