In the new normal, eCommerce has become the frontrunner sales channel for fast-growth businesses. As demand increases across the globe, companies turn to eCommerce to manage the bullwhip affect in their supply chain. With a little effort, you can adjust your sales and better integrate your new eCommerce strategies with your business. Remember, it’s never too late to assess your enterprise technology and its impact on your eCommerce channel. In a recent webinar, Shopify's Olivia Boersen and Vision33’s own Michelle Dowden stopped by to talk about syncing your Shopify web store with your ERP system to streamline your e-commerce presence.
Challenges of Integrating eCommerce with Your Business
In the webinar, Boersen discusses the benefits of being agile – quick to market is one way to differentiate your business, as well as having the ability to create a localized shopping experience. However, there are a few hurdles that are preventing companies from streamlining and modernizing with an integrated eCommerce addition to their enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution.
Manually keying in orders from one system to the next and updating inventory details can be a lot of work and require valuable labor time. Transforming the data requires workflows, time, and human resources - and making data entry mistakes? Well, they can affect customer satisfaction and be quite costly.
