By |July 17, 2018 January 3rd, 2022No Comments

With the unprecedented global growth of eCommerce, more people are shopping online than ever before. Increased competition also means that you can’t just get by on having an online store alone. Your website must provide genuine value and convenience for the customer so that they continue to do business with you.

eCommerce ERP integration is in simple terms connecting the eCommerce Platform (BigCommerce in this case) with the accounting inventory system. The ERP-eCommerce connector can increase the brand presence, shorten sales cycles, develop new sales, provide the ability to scale, and improve customer experience.

A combination of BigCommerce, CLORAS, and P21 can bolster your website with more functionality and increase your company’s revenue.



is one of the most sought-after eCommerce platforms for businesses who want to set up a new site quickly and efficiently. Its pricing options are even more cost-effective than those of Magento, making BigCommerce a perfect solution for smaller companies that are new to the industry. Its interface is user-friendly and simplifies the process of creating a B2B or B2C website. Having worked on over 60,000 stores for a total of 5.6 billion in revenue, BigCommerce has become a significant player in the eCommerce platform market.


Many manufacturers & distributors across industries use EPICOR Prophet 21 (P21) as their ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning). An ERP is a software that is integrated into the management processes of a business, often working in real time to prevent compounding errors or a halt in operations. EPICOR P21 is a popular ERP that powers a Digital Distribution Tool at the backend of a system.

There are numerous benefits to integrating P21 into your eCommerce site. The software allows you to centralize your inventory management, uniting multiple locations into one stock. The advanced technology can even predict future demand for certain items in your inventory, keeping your business free from potential stocking issues. With long-term trend analysis at the item level, P21 helps your warehouses stay on top of their seasonal and yearly stock orders.

Usually, ERP is the source of business data. It is here that most of the Accounting, CRM, Sales, Finance, Purchase, Warehouse, and other data are maintained. When a merchant considers a new channel of business like an online store, then he/she would like the ERP data to be truthfully reflected in the online store too. This transfer of data is a huge challenge for the manufacturer or distributor.

This is where the Bigcommerce – P21 Connector (CLORAS) comes into the picture. CLORAS (Cloud Rapid Automation System) helps to seamlessly synchronize the data between P21 and BigCommerce.

CLORAS allows:

  • Synchronization of products stock level
  • Display customer contract pricing (Dynamic Pricing)
