[Vtigercrm-developers] how to import & synchronize product inventory data

I use OSfinancials for my bookkeeping system. This has got a facility to 
sync with vTiger (I am still working on the sync, as I haven't needed 
the stock to be accurate until now.) Like you, this is my primary stock 
control. This integrates well with my e-commerce websites, and I can 
update the ecommerce sites to reflect the current stock holding.

This however is not what you are asking about, but, the SQL that is used 
there, may be useful to integrate your accounting package. As this is an 
open source package, the SQL is available.

(Which accounting package do you use?)
