how x2x-ecommerce integration makes GP Platform Compatible with Shopify Functionalities



ERP solutions empower businesses with great operation management capabilities. Not only do they automate a lot of tasks, but also help with planning. But unfortunately, every ERP is not designed to cater to all domains of any business. This is because some ERPs, despite being great platforms, have become outdated or their functionalities aren’t compatible with businesses of every nature. Consequently, the management teams using these ERPs face limitations as they expand into domains that call for new functionalities these platforms don’t handle. Furthermore, transiting to a new ERP platform is not always a feasible option since not only is it onerous, but also very expensive.
