Monthly hackathons are very common in Confianz where we build prototype apps useful for the open source community or enthusiasts. Some of these apps help us to service our clients better on a day-to-day basis.

OpenERP-Prestashop connector came out from one of the hackathons we conducted about 6 months ago. We built a prototype, sought feedback from some of the well-wishers and clients who loved the idea. Clearly we could understand that we should work more on it to make it an actual product and make it available as open source on the Launchpad.

While architecting the system, priority was given to make sure the module developed for the OpenERP end and the Prestashop end should be modular ie. We should develop it in a way that it should be easy to install/uninstall the module and at the same time no hacks on the core file structure. This will ensure that in future versions of OpenERP (OpenERP V8 is expected soon) and Prestashop  it will be easier to integrate with few tweaks looking at the changes in future APIs.

For E-commerce businesses this is a good opportunity to use a single system, OpenERP to manage their entire business departments like Finance, HR, Sales, Purchase, CRM, Warehouse, Manufacturing, multiple e-commerce stores etc. Since Prestashop is a proven open source E-commerce suite it is really worth a try to move to a platform like this considering future ease of scaling and manageability.

We will be launching the module on February 27th 2014, So keep coming  here or subscribe for updates.

Notes: Prestashop plugin talks to OpenERP V 7 using the shops concept in OpenERP. From good sources, the concept of shops is going to be deprecated in OpenERP 8, so our future plan is to have the plugin talk to the Warehouse module of OpenERP 8.

Write to us [email protected]  if you need development or support using these modules.
