The benefits of integrated wholesale ecommerce

If you are looking to streamline your wholesale business while increasing profits and reducing the amount of manual time your staff need to spend on each order, then you need to look into ecommerce with integration.

Many wholesale business owners are already using an accounting package, stock management solution or ERP to run their business and adding an ecommerce store often results in the double entry of every product sold back into these applications. Integrated e-commerce seamlessly connects to the business software that you are using and removes the need for any double entry which frees up your staff's time as well as eliminating data entry errors.

Providing a synced inventory for your ecommerce store is one of the many benefits that integration can bring. Carry on reading below to learn more about synced inventories and how they can help your business.

Integrated ecommerce also provides the benefit of being able to have a synced inventory system. Synced inventory comes when we connect your ecommerce store with your ERP or stock management system and means that every time a customer buys your products either online or offline both systems are decreased so that your inventory levels are always correct. Syncing can happen in real-time or on a schedule of minutes up to an hour depending on your needs. This provides your B2B customers with more confidence when they place their orders as the quantity of stock they need can be reserved when placed in their cart and decreased from your stock management application once the order is placed. It also means that you are less likely to oversell your stock as you will always be able to accurately see what you have available at any time.
