Moody Price was operating on the Magento 1 platform, which Magento has officially announced will reach its end of life (EOL) on June 30, 2020. As a result, the company looked to migrate to Magento 2, with improved UI & UX along with a seamless shopping cart experience.
Also, they were working with two systems, Magento & P21, in silos that put the burden of manual data transfer from one to another, and they wanted to integrate both the applications. eCommerce customizations, the client wanted a comprehensive digital commerce solution that will up their game in 2020.
And when it came to data integration — Customers who made offline orders found it difficult to track the same in the Magento storefront. They were unable to separately process and sync orders. Also, product details and inventory between the two systems (ERP and eCommerce) were not in sync causing inconsistent data across the business processes.
P21 Integration Business Requirements
Moody Price contacted DCKAP Integrator with the goal of solving these pain points and making things easier. After a brief discussion with our solution specialists and eCommerce experts, the company decided to migrate from Magento 1 to Magento 2. They also wanted to integrate their Magento store with Epicor P21 ERP and synchronize data, as per their business requirements.
Design and Development
Our certified Magento developers and designers initiated the design and development stage. We formulated a brand new optimized website with an enhanced user experience to fulfill the expectations of the client. The design stage also involved an intricate process to provide a fully customizable Magento site to meet the ever-evolving necessities of the client and the end-users.
From the technical perspective, our developers assured valid codes that comply with current web standards, improved functionality, and wider accessibility for the customers. Appropriately placed CTA’s, interactive contact forms, and enhanced shopping carts were ensured to create an aesthetically pleasing experience for the website visitors.
Magento 2 Migration
Our Magento team was equipped with a well-prepared backup of the Magento 1 website that included databases, files, and folders. Themes were also re-created to work well with the new Magento 2 store. Elimination of unnecessary files and compatibility checks were performed to create a development environment in order to begin the migration process.

Our integration solution specialists elicited the Magento P21 Integration scenarios the client wanted to be set up with and running using DCKAP Integrator. The following were the business use cases that were made possible for Moody Price using DCKAP Integrator:

- Displaying personalized quotes to P21 customers and enabling them to accept or reject the quote. Post accepting the quote, an automated mail will be sent to the admin and the customer for effective communication.

Integration with DCKAP PIM
DCKAP identified the client’s necessity for a product information management solution based on the inventory capacity and implemented a solution to maintain vast product data on their site through DCKAP PIM – a Product Information Management (PIM) storage system, using which you can maintain and manage all your company’s product data, from wherever you are.
The website is now integrated with an advantage in creating and managing the categories for all available products. This solution enables the store owner to import or export the product data from the local storage files with just a single click. This unique solution also has multi-language support and bulk edit options.
A website with a seamless shopping experience will create long-lasting relationships with the customers. On the motive to achieve this, our team worked with the requirements from the client end and understood their pain point in handling the product data. A complete analysis was done on their product database and multiple checks were done to arrive at a solution.
An integration solution was introduced for Moody Price to handle products and make the purchasing process more effortless for the customers. Our eCommerce development team provided and implemented Punchout2Go integration which handles products that aren’t in Magento but available in P21.
Moody Price is now equipped with a completely transitioned Magento 2 store and power-packed integrations to delight its customers. The challenges DCKAP faced during this project, including mammoth data migration from Magento 1x to Magento 2x and enabling the integration between Magento 2x with Epicor P21 were intensive. Yet, our strong technical team managed to hurdle through with their expertise.
The company has been benefited by eliminating the pain point of manual data transfer through DCKAP Integrator integration and has opened up a gateway for the best shopping experience for its valuable customers through Punchout2Go Integration.
