  • Magento Multi Node Inventory (Development)

    While working with Demac Media (an e-commerce agency) we frequently ran into issues where clients had multiple warehouses but Magento's inventory system was only able to handle one. Although there are other 3rd party solutions, none are quite as flexible as what we embarked on building.
