  • Mode 2: suppliers upload an XLS of products and product properties and the ERP integration software is given SQL to pull out the list, selling price, and the inventory level from the ERP database directly which then replicates to the commerce server.

  • Mode 3: suppliers move product data, prices, inventory, product specifications, customer's data, and tax rates from their ERP to local Avetti ERP MySQL integration tables, setup on their network. Then, The Avetti ERP integration software updates the Commerce server with items, prices, inventory, and downloads orders (via Soap/XML calls) to local orders integration tables. The Supplier then moves the order data to the ERP and updates the order status and order item properties that can hold detailed shipping status and delivery status information that the customer then can view
