We're about to bring out a link between our Netfira product (www.netfira.com.au) and osCommerce.
(This will allow osCommerce to stay synced in pretty much real time with information with any one of a number of accounting or ERP systems. We connect to everything from QuickBooks to SAP.)
One thing we're discussing internally and would appreciate some feedback is how to handle the issue of Categories.
Some accounting systems, like MYOB for example, don't have categories. Other systems have extensive ways to organise stock in categories.
Netfira will insert a new product into osCommerce within a few seconds of it being created into whatever accounting system it's hooked up to.
When this happens, do you think it's best that the products are assigned to a categories that matches what's in the accounting system and create one if it's not there or should products be put in a "Uncatagorised" area for the store admin to assign manually?
Thanks in advance,
PS: More than happy to share betas of the osCommerce-Netfira link. Drop me a PM. We expect to have a full release in 2-3 weeks.
