If you want to have a fully functional eCommerce site, you need integration between all of your different systems so that your front end and back end work together flawlessly. What your customers see, what your administrators see, and the workflows you create will depend on the level of integration.
How smoothly your integration can be facilitated depends on what eCommerce platform and ERP you are using, and whether you are willing to invest in a NetSuite Magento integration solution designed to help you leverage your data to the fullest for seamless experiences with your brand.
Reasons for Magento NetSuite integration
ERP integration with your main eCommerce platform is critical to maintaining a single point of truth across your organization. Without a single point of truth, inventories can vary depending on who is looking at what interface. Likewise, your logistics information available may or may not be accurate in real time.
Are Magento and Adobe Commerce the same?
Magento Commerce was consolidated with Adobe Commerce Cloud in April of 2021. It has long been the world’s leading commerce cloud platform, powering more than 325,000 eCommerce websites and driving more than $155 in gross sales of merchandise annually.
Adobe Commerce currently supports content management, search engine optimization, integrated payment gateways, inventory management, multiple shipping options, business intelligence, and much more.
What is Magento Oracle Netsuite integration?
Oracle has owned NetSuite, the “#1 Cloud Business Management Suite,” since 2016. It is a unified business management platform that includes and provides ERP/Financials, CRM and eCommerce functionality for more than 24,000 organizations.
Achieving Magento NetSuite integration can be accomplished with erpCommerce™, a dashboard and integration engine that allows your back-end data to work with nearly every other business operation for better information management.

Making Magento/Adobe Commerce and NetSuite ERP work together is a matter of simple integration. erpCommerce™ is a fast, easy way to accomplish Magento ERP integration at any point in your organizational growth cycle, and scales with you as you continue to expand.
You don’t need anything else to make your integration process functional. Simply connect both your NetSuite ERP and your Magento eCommerce site, and information can be directed from one to the other in either direction through the erpCommerce™ solution.
By integrating using erpCommerce™, you’ll be able to standardize all of the following across all locations in your business:
Best practices for data integration
Using a cloud platform for customer and product data is the optimal way to operate. Before choosing an integration solution, ask the following questions:
- What is the business value proposition that should be driving this decision?
- What stakeholders (sales, marketing, IT) need to be involved in the decision-making process?
- What are the systems of record for each category of data?
- What infrastructure changes (if any) will need to be made to support the integration?
- Is the integration solution flexible enough to meet all of your requirements, including scaling?
An integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) provides a stable centralized location that feeds and is fed by both your eCommerce solution and your ERP. All of your customer, product and logistics data is submitted to and retrieved from this cloud platform to streamline workflows and provide accuracy in real time.
