why to integrate nav erp and woocommerce

Over the past few years, WooCommerce has turned into one of the most downloaded WordPress plugins, allowing small to large businesses an easy method of starting their eCommerce store. This immensely popular solution further expanded its user base after it was acquired by Automattic, the parent company of WordPress.com.

According to a recent WooCommerce report, Woocommerce powers 13% of all eCommerce stores worldwide, having been downloaded more than 7 million times. Thousands of add-ons, both paid and free, are easily available to cater to different business scenarios.

In the ERP market, Microsoft Dynamics NAV has carved its own niche as one of the most popular ERPs with a customer base of more than 110,000 companies. Factors like high customization capability, ease of use, different licence plans, etc have contributed a lot to its popularity.

Initially, many businesses started with traditional brick and mortar stores and later they ventured into the online space. As they grew up and expanded, most started using an ERP or CRM ( specially for businesses dealing in B2B customers ). For others who started their journey with an online store, there comes a time when an ERP or a CRM becomes necessary for streamlining their organizational flows. As your business expands, manually managing your data hampers your business efficiency and the best solution is to integrate the online business with the back-end support ERP or CRM.
