Fons Hofstra is working as a Team Manager E-commerce in BMN Bouwmaterialen. He had some few questions regarding the Magento 2 Akeneo Connector module. He was migrating to Magento 2 platform and was looking for a new PIM System like Akeneo. As he wanted to connect it together through an API.

After completely testing the connector integration between Magento Enterprise and Akeneo. We asked Fons to share his experience with Webkul. Please see the review –

Five Stars Review

Easy, innovative and great solution for Akeneo 2+ and Magento 2+

We’re using Akeneo 2+ Community and Magento 2.2 (Enterprise/Commerce). Therefore I was searching for a connection to sync the product data. There a few extensions on the market but it’s most of the time working by CSV import/export. Which I think is really the old way of syncing this amount of data. Then I founded this extension for Akeneo, which really surprised me.

– Easy to install on Akeneo.

– Good manual how to install

– Great support from

Webkul (sometimes it’s a bit hard to get the connection with security these days). But we have solved it. What we have now (not in production yet) – Akeneo 2.0.7 with this connector – Magento 2.2 EE/Commerce – Syncing products(simple and configurable)/categories/attributes/Sets/options and this all really fast.

I think they made a good extension for Akeneo and Magento and support is fast. And on both sides, the API’s getting better and better, this is the future. Feel free to contact me if you want to have a customer reference.
