Socksmith wanted their brick and mortar store and their Magento Commerce website to share the same inventory and accounting, so we connected Magento to Lightspeed POS, and then loaded the Magento site with enterprise-class features that you would only expect from sites that cost 10x the cost of this small business eCommerce website.
