ERP integration is critical to a successful eCommerce experience. In fact, it’s a requirement for unified commerce. Unilog has a pre-built integration with Epicor Eclipse that allows you to display inventory availability, order and invoice history, customer-specific pricing, and more on your eCommerce site or mobile app.
Unilog understands the complexities of working with an established software solution like Eclipse. We have complete knowledge of the API schema, how data flows throughout the system, and how making a change in one part of Eclipse may impact other data in your ERP.
Why Unilog eCommerce for Epicor Eclipse Users?

Real-Time Product Availability
Today’s B2B buyers expect to see product pricing and availability. And they don’t want to create an account or login to your website to do so. Unilog’s platform displays on-hand inventory and negotiated pricing for your current customers. It also provides list price for anonymous buyers. Price and availability transparency are key to increasing site traffic and conversion rates.
PIM (Product Information Management)
Where many other vendors require you to look elsewhere for a PIM solution to power your digital branch, Unilog has a native PIM included in the base eCommerce platform. And don’t be fooled by others who try to convince you that they have a “true” PIM in their offering. The Unilog PIM provides complete control over your entire catalog, including the ability to manage taxonomies, define catalog subsets for particular customers or groups of customers, manage your digital assets, maintain quality measures for item data, schedule imports and exports of items, and much more.
“A complete website refresh, a storefront with over 300,000 SKUs, and a fully functional catalog… all within such a short time frame! That’s an achievement only the best in the industry can deliver.”
– Ajay Kamble, CIO, Turtle & Hughes
Unilog’s B2B functionality has been ranked best in the market by leading industry analysts, which is why so many Eclipse users have selected Unilog as their eCommerce vendor of choice. In 2020, Andy Hoar’s Paradigm B2B Combine (Midmarket Edition) awarded Unilog’s eCommerce platform with more gold medals than any other vendor in their research. In fact, Unilog medaled in an amazing 9 out of 10 categories in the vendor research!
Allow contractors and other customers to access your catalog, make purchases, or look up their account history from a dedicated mobile app for iOS or Android. Make commerce easier by leveraging capabilities only available on a mobile device, such as the phone’s camera, barcode scanner, microphone, and location services.
Unilog’s CMS (content management system) is a user-friendly tool that gives non-technical users the ability to create, organize, and deliver engaging content on their website – without requiring any coding knowledge. Deploy new web pages or promotional banners, launch marketing campaigns, or create original content like blog posts. You have complete control over your eCommerce website and don’t need a third party to manage it.
Did You Know?
In addition to a leading B2B eCommerce platform, Unilog also provides Eclipse users with enriched product data and content, including multiple product images, complete specs and attributes, robust item descriptions, and more. This content is especially important to those wholesalers who specialize in decorative plumbing or have showroom products they wish to market and sell online.
