"It’s a must have for any Magento Store"

What do you like best?

Easy to use, and there are so many features you cant even use them all! There is an entire wiki for help and documentation, as well as pretty quick support. We use the bridge connection rather than the direct database connection. This allows me to make all necessary changes locally using the software, and then post those changes in bulk once I'm ready.

What do you dislike?

I have found a bit of a language barrier at times for support, and you have to pay once a year to continue receiving updates. I have had some issues figuring out proper configuration of import templates for things like images, etc. But it's easy enough to fix any issues once the import is complete and prior to posting the changes across the bridge connection.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a no brainer, if you're managing a large catalog of products, many customers, or high volume of orders in bulk, you must have this tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Importing apparel into Magento in bulk instead of having to do it one by one.

"EDITED: Can be a massive time saver when bulk handling large Magento product catalogs"

What do you like best?

The ability to be able action various tasks from the same interface (as opposed to switching between multiple tabs and pages in the Magento backend) and the usefulness of various other functionality that you cannot carry out from within Magento (like changing attribute sets and product types).

What do you dislike?

EDITED: The software does come with it's bugs and can be a bit clunky plus I am not sure the pricing model works for everyone but after previously been an unhappy customer, I relayed my issues directly to the developers who took each on board with view to implement and help improve their product for their customer base.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

EDITED: Frequent product pricing exporting/importing is live saver with this software. Ongoing minor tweaks to products saves a huge amount of time than what the Magento backend provides out of the box.

"Makes Working with Magento Easier"

What do you like best?

Store Manager makes working with Magento sooooooooo much easier. The main feature we use is for bulk product updates. Imports / Exports / and Product Updates are faster to make and easier to do using this tool. In addition to this core feature, we use the apps Amazon, eBay, and Doba integrations to make our workflow smoother by using less tools.

What do you dislike?

Due to the sophisticated nature of the app, and the deep functionality it has, this app is not for beginners. You need to know what's going on within Magento, how to use data handling best practices, and make sure you backup what you have online before making any changes. It's easy to wipe out or overwrite the data you want to keep with updates you don't want to make. Be careful... with power comes responsibility.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Store Manager is a great product and if you have more than a few dozen SKU's to manage, it's well worth the investment. The app is feature rich and allows near total data manipulation for products. Integration with other apps (Quickbooks) and online services (Amazon, eBay) are added features that really do make running an ecommerce store (or more than 1, as we do) that much easier.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Workflow efficiency when working with an ecommerce platform like Magento is critical. The faster you can get new products online or update information on existing products, the more sales you will have. Store Manager makes these efficiencies happen. Also, using fewer apps makes life easier, and by providing so many features, Store Manager allows us to consolidate the number of apps we use. Less apps to purchase and support is also a great benefit.

"Un grande gestionale per magento"

What do you like best?

Un programma davvero facilissimo da usare che permette di fare di tutto e di più con il proprio ecommerce. Il prezzo bisogna dire che è un po altino all'inizio ma poi non ci sono costi aggiuntivi a parte il costo degli aggiornamenti che sono facoltativi anche se per il bassissimo costo che hanno vale davvero la pena acquistarli. I vari addon disponibili sono utilissimi sopratutto quello di ebay che vi permette di inviare tutti i prodotti presenti su prestashop direttamente sul proprio negozio on line di ebay ma anche il modulo di importazione automatica di prodotti in modo da creare dei cron sui vari profili di importazione dei propri file csv. Ce ne sono anche altri che vorrei provare a breve come il pdf catalogue che vi permette di generare un listino pdf di tutti i prodotti presenti nello store.

What do you dislike?

Ci sono tanti limiti soprattutto nei vari addons come quello di ebay che non integrano completamente tutte le funzioni ebay come la gestione dei codici iva ad esempio. Inoltre gli addon non sono utilizzabili in caso si acquista la versione della postazione aggiuntiva dello store manager.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ho iniziato a conoscere questo programma da una pubblicità fatta sui moduli e dalla possibilità di provare gratuitamente la versione prova. Ho fatto cosi e mi sono trovato benissimo già dopo pochi giorni.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Tempi di importazione prodotti drasticamente ridotti. Ci sono delle configurazioni di import salvabili che permettono di importare i listini ogni qual volta che ci vuole direttamente da file locali o anche se sono on line inserendo l'url relativa al csv salvato.

"Makes Magento imports/exports much easier"

What do you like best?

Importing and exporting product details is what I use this software for most of the time. Without this software, it would be a nightmare!

What do you dislike?

Can be quite clunky to run, but this is probably due to the connection to Magento's database

Recommendations to others considering the product

An absolute must if you have got Magento with lots of products (we've got 28,000)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"This a most effective software i used"

What do you like best?

I used this application for 2 years and I really like the way it performs. There are no complicated installation tricks, you get it set up within minutes. I have immense database and great deal of categories so for me quick product search is a big plus. Product import is fast and when it comes to updating I can complete it having several fields in the file, instead of hundred records. I can’t but mention configurable product management conveniences. Also quick associated product generation is perfect

What do you dislike?

I have discovered that there is the possibility to add additional product attributes to the grid, but not all attributed and I would like to enable custom ones.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As I have mentioned the application is very helpful when it comes to inventory update. I am a store owner and it is critical for me to keep everything under control. I used some reports to see products selling best and I saw other reports there. In my opinion, statistics is very important and I am interested in more delicate figures.

"Useful management system for Magento stores"

What do you like best?

Ease of real time reporting of sales data, and extremely easy data exports.

What do you dislike?

Custom reporting could be better, and should come with some set up to modify.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want easier access to store figures, product exports, and the ability to update mass data, Store Manager would be a good application to consider.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Access to data in real time is sometimes an issue in Magento, Store Manager alleviates this problem.

"Really useful to manage Magento ecommerce"

What do you like best?

Magento Store Manager is the best if you need to manage an eCOmmerce based on Magento. The best part is the catalog management, where you can schedule import, update prices for multiple products, update stocks, practically everything

I don't like that it's only Windows compatible, not a big deal, i use it with Parallel Desktop on an iMac 21" and it's working flawlessly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Really useful if you need to manage an eCommerce based on Magento. Scheduling looks really easy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used it to manage an eCommerce with thousand of products, scheduling daily import for stocks and prices.

"magento = magneto"

What do you like best?

nothing! this is one of the worst shop manager programs i've used. we frequently had errors with our items displaying correctly and found lots of ways to cause errors in testing.

What do you dislike?

Lots of errors during testing - adding discount codes or messing around with a shopping cart could cause the site to break and page loading errors

Recommendations to others considering the product

ultimately magento is the worst

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We did not ultimately continue using this product
