Author Dennis Category

In an economy where consumers are in the driver’s seat, businesses need more from their e-commerce solutions. Seamless, vibrant shopping experiences across all channels now are the industry standard. To accomplish this, businesses need a solution that provides one location to manage their entire operation, including customer service, inventory, and order fulfillment. However, the challenge for retailers, wholesalers and manufacturers is how to meet increasing customer service demands while boosting organizational efficiency and using business analytics to spot trends and improve sales.

Businesses can meet these challenges very easily with minimal time and effort thanks to i95Dev’s recently developed solution, the E-Commerce Growth Engine, or EGE, which melds with Microsoft Dynamics software and is powered by Magento’s e-commerce platform. It’s a feature-rich application that allows businesses to quickly establish or augment their online presence and leverage multiple channels like Web stores, mobile devices, social media and third-party marketplaces like eBay, Amazon & Raukten. Additionally, the EGE integrates seamlessly with the Microsoft Dynamics family of products (RMS, GP, NAV, and AX) as well as other critical backend systems. No matter the multi-channel point of sale, the EGE provides the Omni-channel user experience today’s retail customer’s demand.

Some might ask why i95dev chose Magento as the EGE’s e-commerce platform. The answer is two-fold:

  • Magento is the leading e-commerce cart available in the market, with more than 200,000 clients from SMB- to Enterprise-level using it. It is not a one-size-fits-all solution but instead offers varying levels of functionality based on your business’ particular needs.
  • Magento is open-source, not proprietary. No proprietary platform can adapt as quickly and effectively as open-source to the ever-changing demands of the digital landscape. Another way to put this is that the Magento developer community already has addressed every conceivable extension or add-on businesses may require, and continues to do so every day. There is no need for costly re-inventions of the wheel.

Whether it’s reducing time spent on batch updating, scheduling shipping, verifying delivery or providing customer support, the EGE addresses it for bother B2C and B2B operations. Suppliers and wholesalers will also benefit from the real-time integration that prevents ordering and delivery mishaps by maintaining up-to-the-minute inventory information on both the Magento Web store and Microsoft Dynamics ERP.

Features of the EGE:
