Companies around the world are realizing the benefits of syncing Magento and Salesforce. Among them is the Canada-based organization, Protect Your Boundaries (PYB). PYB provides land and boundary consulting to homeowners, realtors, and land professionals.
Like many business executives, the leaders at Protect Your Boundaries are big fans of Salesforce CRM
. Because PYB operates their business on the Magento eCommerce platform, they were looking for a way to sync data between the two systems. In particular, it was important to view real-time dashboards and reports about Magento customer data and orders within Salesforce.
At first, PYB considered building an integration in-house to sync the two systems. They mapped out the process, considering the time it would take to develop, and the inevitable quality period working out the kinks. "We were estimating a minimum of 40 hours just to get a version out the door," said Protect Your Boundaries representative Jeff Denham. "There's no way that in that first 40 hours it would have worked the way that we needed it to work."
