Altitude Overview and Comparisons

Altitude architecture utilizes:

 

    • Magento Open Source
    • Grey Wolf Web Services for ERP Integration
    • Porto Theme
    • authorize.net Payment Processing

Grey Wolf’s eCommerce solution for Infor (SX and CSD) or Epicor (Prophet 21) is powered by Magento Open Source.  Magento Open Source is arguably the best open source solution for online storefronts and eCommerce.

 

As the Magento Open Source improves over time in the base system, Altitude eCommerce solution upgrades with those changes as well.  Magento Open Source is developed both by Adobe and the Magento Community.  So enhancements, improvements and upgrades happen on a regular basis.  Altitude stays on the latest supported version of Magento Open Source.

 

While not as robust (or expensive) as Magento Commerce, the differences have been compensated for by the integration with your existing ERP solution.  That is how Altitude excels as an eCommerce solution for Infor and Epicor.

 

Since Altitude is powered by Magento, the resources available in the community are fully utilized.  Themes and extensions from the Magento Marketplace as well as website consultants are all available for Altitude by default from the Magento community.

 

Grey Wolf is integrating with your Infor or Epicor system through Grey Wolf Web Services Lite (a prerequisite for Altitude).

Integration touch points include:

 

    • Real-time pricing
    • Real-time availability
    • Real-time order insert
    • Real-time invoice and order status
    • Real-time payment processing
