How to integrate OpenERP v7.0 with Magento?
OpenERP & Magento connector (open source) is extremely complete and allows to synchronize Magento with OpenERP in real time and in both directions. OpenERP extends the Magento backend for the sale order workflow and provides advanced features for managing an e-commerce company (automatic purchase based on stock rules, shipping label printing, warehouse management, banking reconciliation,...).
If you would like to know more, please follow the official launch of this connector: OpenERP & Magento Connector Training: http://www.eventbrite.com/event/6211812699 - June 19-21, in Redwood City, CA
Hi, This is a partial presentation of the Magento Webinar. It will remain partial, because of technical issues we had with the recording - http://www.youtube.com/user/OpenERPUS/videos

Sincerely, Germana Freitas
Has anyone tested this new plugin? I am a bit disappointed for not getting any updates on the connector, But right now, my magento store is disconnected from openerp and I want to add ebay as well as google merchant. If I can't have proper stock numbers, I will get burned on ebay and google merchant. I had another plugin in openerp to connect with magento but it didn't perform too well, that's why I am a bit reluctant to dive in and invest time.
Hi Ralph, This module is built from scratch for OpenERP v7 and is simple, clean in design. People all over the world are trying/testing it and finding it very efficient. Some good reviews about this connector can be seen here - http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/open-erp-connector-by-openlabs.html . Also an easy to understand documentation is also available - https://openerp-magento-connector.readthedocs.org/en/develop/ that explore on how this module works. thanks
Good to hear. Now how in the world do I get started? Both magento and openerp have products already. All the product are the same in magento and openerp. Is there a table which can be populated with seed data to prevent duplication on the first synch? I guess I need to dive in the code and get my hand dirty.
Hi Ralph, in fact design of the module by Openlabs deals with this situation very nicely. We have designed the system so that a user can directly link products between magento and openerp using the IDs without doing an actual sync. This design would work even if you have the same product on openerp in multiple magento websites. Although this feature has not been made very obvious because misusing this might lead to data corruption but for advanced users as in your case, this can easily be enabled by just making a few fields to be editable.
This is great. As soon as I am done moving my openerp install from one vps to another ( I am having some random slowdowns that I can't pinpoint) I will install the module and give it a try. I will also take a look at the code to see if I can use plain sql to link the product in one shot. I am really excited to learn that others are having good results with the plugin, this will save me a lot of time. BTW I another friends in the same situation (Magento openerp 7) I will have him try it as well.
Openlabs has developed a new connector between openerp and magento. This has been written from scratch with a new design which is clean and simple. The module is also documented to explain the installation processes and the working of module.
The code is available at github.com/openlabs/magento_integration
We publicly released the new version of the Magento connector (magentoerpconnect) today, you can find more information on http://openerp-magento.connector.com
It has been rewritten entirely based on a new framework to develop connectors (http://openerp-connector.com)
As far as I can see there are 3 solutions. I recomend taking a Good Snapshot, then implementing one, testing. Restoring the Snapshot, Installing the Next, testing, and if you still need a solution going to WebKul and buying theirs. The Primary solutions are "magentoerpconnect" http://openerp-magento-connector.com/ (wht Code at: https://code.launchpad.net/openerp-connector-magento)
OpenLabs has built a new integration also (hosted on GitHub, not LaunchPad). "magento_integration" https://openerp-magento-connector.readthedocs.org/en/develop/introduction.html .
The WebKul implementation you can find on Magentocommerce.com (extensions). The previous 2 require the Magento api library (Python) and the Open Erp mag extension (bzr or magentocommerce.com (extensions).
Everyone has put a lot of work in and implementing is a not a small task but to my view this is critical work. Thanks to all the developers!
(It would be helpful if the "read the docs" URL above actually started with "magento_integration" as it refers to the Module by that Name rather than the name of the other connector above, which in itself refers to the magentoerpconnect(or) Module... Just difficult to chase all thi in Google if you are on the outside trying to find your way. (comment only))
