Mass Order Export allows you to create xml, csv and txt order files from your Magento admin panel and export them to any CRM application or order management software/platform. Any kind of export file types can be easily customized.
SalesCast Connector allows you to automate the data feed generation and the file upload into your Salescast account from your Magento back office. This Package includes Data Feed Manager and Orders Export Tool in a special edition.
The web application Salescast optimizes your inventory levels by using data on your business activity, current stock levels, and open orders. It is therefore important to send a daily.TSV file with this data to the Lokad service platform.
Salescast Connector completely automates the uploading of the data to the Lokad service platform. It works in conjunction with both the Data Feed Manager and the Orders Export Tool components.
Salescast Connector also allows the Leadtime and Servicelevel variables to be defined and adjusted for an individual product or for the entire product catalog.
The web app Salescast delivers two key data for your inventory optimization:
to know when to order
to know how much to order
The quantities suggested by Salescast rely on advanced statistics as delivered by the Lokad forecasting technology. Salescast saves you money with fewer stocks and fewer stock-outs; but also Salescast saves you time when reordering to your suppliers.
Open a Salescast account
Salescast comes with an Express subscription free of any charge up to 10,000 products. The Salescast Connector lets you take advantage of this offer from your Magento back office.
Note that you will need your email/password to set up the "Salescast Connector".

STEP 2: Configure Salescast Connector
Salescast Connector allows two key variables, Leadtime and Servicelevel, to be defined and adjusted to maximize the efficiency of Salescast. These variables can be defined and adjusted for an individual product or for the entire product catalog.
For more information about the two variables, please have a look at the Lokad reference documents:
A license is valid for an unlimited period of time on one single Magento installation.
If you use more than one Magento installation, you will have to buy a separate license for each one.
If you run several domains on the same Magento installation, you will need only one license for all of them.
Although your license doesn’t have a limited period of validity, your support period does. By purchasing an extension, you’ll be granted a 6-month support period for free. Passed this period, you will have to renew your Support plan (see FAQ: How to extend my support period?).
One license is valid for an unlimited period of time on one Magento installation only.
It is possible, however, to extend or transfer your license in 2 cases:
If you'd like to add your testing environments to your license. In this case, it is possible to extend your license to an unlimited number of domains for free. For example mywebsite-staging.com or mywebsite-dev.com
If you want to transfer your license to another live domain. In that case, the support period for your license must still be active.
To be able to use Salescast Connector on both your production and testing environments, follow the instructions below:

Once Salescast Connector is installed, you have to activate the license:

We use both modules included in salescast connector everyday, whilst we no longer use Lokad we have repurposed both modules to help us with our daily tasks, never been an issue and allowed use to customise our feed in house even with complex business logic, data feed module is the most flexable feed module available and even allows inline php functions. Great module bundle!

Used on Magento 1
We have used this module on magento 1 and it proved useful, as we have upgraded to magneto 2 we have purchased again. Never really had a problem and hope the same this time.
