Magstar Total Retail

Quick Facts

Magstar, Inc., based out of Toronto, Ontario, has provided robust enterprise resource planning (ERP) software/systems for over 30 years.  In 2012, after being recognized as a very strategic and powerful system for retailers--particularly in the wine and spirits industry--the company was acquired by Constellation Software, Inc. 


As a solution, Magstar Total Retail tends to best fit larger scale retail operations--usually spanning across multiple locations.  It's built and implemented in such a way where individual businesses can have their solution customized to best suit their needs.  Additionally, beyond the POS system itself, there's a native customer relationship management (CRM) component and accounting software.


While Magstar Total Retail is used across multiple industries, the company specializes in the wine and spirits retail vertical and can easily accomodate its needs.

How BevSites Integrates

Magstar Total Retail is actively used by our clients--and we have built single-store and multi-store eCommerce solutions powered by this software.


Reading Inventory Updates

BevSites can read ongoing inventory updates from Magstar Total Retail to our eCommerce platform--for a single store or multiple locations. Depending on the way the store has chosen to implement Magstar Total Retail, we can either handle this through our eStage desktop software, which can read updates directly from Magstar's SQL database, or, we can work with a file extract produced by Magstar.


Importing Processed Web Orders (Closing the Loop)

BevSites can and has worked with Magstar to import finalized web orders back into Magstar Total Retail to consolidate inventory and customer order history.  This works in both single store and multi-store set-ups.


Price File Integration

For businesses in markets where Beverage Media has wholesaler data, this information can be made available within Magstar Total Retail so that you can monitor updates to inventory costs from the distributors you work with.  



eOrders Integration

eOrders, a Beverage Media software, allows for flexible estimates of reorder quantities based on previous sales history. A purchase order can be imported back into Magstar to prepare for the receipt of goods, or goods can be received within eOrders before writing the completed order into Magstar. Orders are then placed directly with the wholesalers using eOrders.
