ERP for eCommerce can help connect the dots, but retailers must first identify the right technology partner to manage their software and service needs.

The omnichannel approach to marketing, selling, and serving customers means building a better connection between your sales channel and backend operations. An enterprise resource planning solution can help connect the dots, but retailers must first identify the right technology partner to manage their software and service needs. This includes integration, ongoing support, and customization to achieve the value of an integrated enterprise solution.Having partnered with hundreds of retailers to improve their business operations by integrating critical business processes with their eCommerce platforms, Vision33 has deep insight into the challenges retailers face when choosing the right ERP solution to integrate with their eCommerce platform.
eCommerce ERP Solution
An integrated ERP solution eliminates the problem of disorganized information—the ERP compiles data in one place so you can leverage it for real-time reporting and decision-making about product lineups and which products aren’t selling well. Customer data also feeds into an ERP solution, offering an advantage to retailers, suppliers, and other trading partners. A drastic increase in sales, boosted profits, and better consumer relationships are a few of the benefits of better customer data.
As this solution becomes more popular, retailers are partnering with professional services IT companies to implement an ERP that serves as a business backend to their eCommerce solutions.
