Akretion and Camptocamp Announce the Release of the PrestaShop-OpenERP Connector

February 23, 2012 --

LYON, FRANCE and LAUSANNE, SWITZERLAND -- (Marketwire) -- 02/23/12 -- Akretion and Camptocamp connect the PrestaShop e-commerce software to the OpenERP ERP: the perfect match between two Open Source leaders.

PrestaShop is an Open Source e-commerce software written in PHP that provides an easy-to-use and high-performance solution to set up an online shop. OpenERP is an Open Source ERP software written in Python with an extended functional coverage: Customer Relationship Management (CRM), sales and purchase administration, stock management, Material Requirement Planning (MRP), accounting, etc.

Many e-commerce companies running PrestaShop are looking for a global solution that includes stock management and accounting. For a successful e-commerce company, automating supplier orders and accounting are critical in order to have a profitable business. OpenERP and PrestaShop complement each other perfectly:

-- PrestaShop manages the front office: product catalog, customer accounts, carts, order validation and payment by credit card; -- OpenERP handles the back office: stock management, supplier orders, customer claims, accounting, etc.


This first version of the PrestaShop-OpenERP connector has been developed during a one-week "code sprint" that took place from February 6th to 10th 2012 in Seythenex (Haute-Savoie, France). This release is the kick-start of a new Open Source software project called PrestashopERPconnect and driven by two companies: Akretion and Camptocamp.

Sebastien Beau, e-commerce project manager at Akretion in Lyons, declares: "Our target was to be capable of importing orders from PrestaShop to OpenERP at the end of the code sprint. But before importing the first order, we needed to develop the synchronization of shops, currencies, languages, countries, carriers and products. We reached our target, so we deserved to go skiing the last afternoon at the Seythenex La Sambuy ski resort!"

Joel Grand-Guillaume, Business Solution Division Manager at Camptocamp in Lausanne adds: "We did not only bring the finest swiss chocolates to this code sprint; we also brought our long experience of software development on the OpenERP framework and our knowledge of software architecture."

The PrestaShop company contributed to the development of the connector by providing technical support on the PrestaShop webservices that are used by the connector. Nebojsa Stojanovic, Chief Technical Officer of PrestaShop, declares: "The development of the PrestaShop-OpenERP connector is the proof that our large developers community is a key differentiator compared with proprietary e-commerce solutions. We are very happy to see our award-winning Open Source e-commerce platform connected to one of the leading Open Source ERP solutions."
