I would like to get more info please about your Magento Integrator. I would like to use it to integrate with a point of sale system called Retail-1 Connected from Gemmar. It is running on MS SQL database, and I'm wondering if you can get it integrated with Magento for me. Thank you.
Thank you for your interest in Modern Retail. We would love to help you get your website integrated with Retail-1 Connected. The following article describes your options around this integration:
I took a look at the Gemmar website but could not find any information about an application programming interface (API) or import/export capabilities (however, I may have missed it). If Retail-1 Connected has an API, then it would be fairly easy to get their API connected to our Middleware/API. If they don’t have an API, then we could always use Modern Retail's Inventory CSV/XML Uploader using FTP. We have a variety of other methods that we’ve used over the years which we could also try.
May I make a suggestion? Could you please e-mail your representative at Gemmar and let them know you’re interested in getting Retail-1 Connected integrated with your Magento website? If you copy me on the message, I’ll immediately reply asking to set up a meeting with Gemmar. Getting our developers to talk with their developers, even for 30 minutes, makes a huge difference and can really help to "jump start" the integration efforts.
Our Magento Integrator is really nice, and one of the things we worked extremely hard on in the early years was the speed of the integration with Magento. Please read the following article:
However, the integration with Magento is much more than just speed, and we have some features that are completely unique to our integration:
- Avoid Overselling (Allocation) - Absolutely a brilliant feature!
- Difference Engine
- Accounting for Amazon & eBay Orders
We’ve done POS and ERP integrations for over a decade now so our process and knowledge is pretty advanced. You might find the following articles interesting:
- 100% Inventory Accuracy
- Connecting Disparate Systems
- Integrating Existing Products

- Ongoing Support & Upgrades
That should get you started. Please let me know if you have any questions about our integration with Magento and how we get it connected to POS or ERP systems. Thank you.
