How it works

The project to use the Instore App must have Commerce, Omnitron and Omnitron FE as part of mandatory integration.

Instore App provides the functions mentioned above through integration with Commerce, Omnitron, Omnitron FE and OMS. For adding packaging orders and transfer orders functions, OMS (Order Management System) must be integrated with Instore.

The brand defines the functions to be used in Instore App and desired functions can be applied with these integrations. After installing Akinon Instore App to a project, the application automatically has the mandatory and optional integrations. Configurations must be done after the installation as you can follow from Instore Tutorials.

NOTE: In case of integrating the Instore App in Akinon Commerce Cloud with the brand's Omnitron which is not in the cloud, you should follow the steps described in the section Omnitron Integration for integration.
