Purchase and Installation
Pickware is ready for use within a few hours with your existing technical infrastructure. You can easily purchase the ERP and the desired plugins such as WMS and POS via the Shopware Community Store and install them in your backend within a few minutes via the Plugin Manager. All purchased plugins can be found under My Purchases. As soon as you have installed a plugin, you should empty the caches, therefore confirm the message after the installation with Yes. Then you can activate the plugin by clicking the corresponding button. Afterwards, the caches have to be emptied again.
Pickware ERP is part of the Professional or Enterprise Edition of Shopware. If you have already used Pickware ERP as a test version, but are not yet using a corresponding licence from Shopware, you first need to purchase it and add it to your shop.
Migration and Setup
In most cases, migration to Pickware is not necessary at all, as Pickware works directly on the customer and order data of your Shopware shop. This is especially true if your previous warehouse management was connected to Shopware via an import/export or connector/interface. Only data that is not maintained in Shopware by default, such as suppliers, must then be transferred manually. You can find more information on migration in our migration guide.
To set up the Pickware apps for Pickware WMS or Pickware POS, a setup wizard is available in the app. To do this, at least one user must first be created in the Shopware backend. Depending on the individual requirements, time should be planned for setting up printers, recording storage locations or even reorganising the warehouse.
If you have never worked with Pickware before, you can find tips on how to set it up in this article. If you already know Pickware, but are using one of our plugins for the first time, we recommend our Overview articles, which provide links to all relevant articles of the individual plugin.
In the following video you will find the setup process using the WMS plugin as an example.
