What Makes CLORAS Stand Out?

Cloras automatically syncs your customer details, product information, orders, and other requested data across systems. It improves efficiency and delivers the real-time data necessary to sell more effectively. Even though P21 ERP comes with its own connector called ECC (Epicor Commerce Connect), it has its own restrictions and low adaptability for businesses that are progressive.

Ensure Seamless Data Synchronization With Cloras

Customer Details

Cloras checks the customer details for both existing and guest logins. Creation of duplicate customer information is prevented by verifying the name, company, email address, payment method, and geographical location. Cloras also modifies the details and appends the customer information if and when there is a change.


Orders Details

Cloras offers you the luxury of transferring the order payment regardless of the payment method. If the payment is made through eCommerce platform, then Cloras passes the payment details to P21 with necessary fields. If the order is processed on the ERP side, then relevant order details are passed on to the eCommerce platform. Cloras also makes it easier for guest orders by creating a unique customer ID for future purchases.

Inventory Details

The inventory is synchronized in real-time and without any lapse for all the products. Cloras will identify the products based on whether it is an assembly item or an individual item. Cloras will change the logic based on the desired result. Cloras is also capable of pulling and displaying inventories from different warehouses.


Product Details

Products created in P21, to begin with, have the basic information. This information changes based on business needs. When new products are created in P21 or if their attributes are modified, the changes are synced at regular intervals between P21 and the eCommerce platform. This synching of product information ensures the latest product information is available for the customer.

Dynamic Pricing

Cloras retrieves the pricing dynamically from P21 ERP based on the customer details. For e.g. discounted prices are displayed for favorite customers. This dynamic pricing service ensures that there is parity between the pricing information in the P21 ERP and the eCommerce site.
