Keying in orders from your web site to your back-office systems. Missing deliveries because products are sold out. Shipping errors as the result of typing errors. Sound familiar? It may be time for you to integrate your ecommerce website with your ERP systems. As intimidating as it may sound, Speartek is here to help you unlock the power of integration for your business.
First, let’s define our terms. ERP includes any system you use to manage your business data or back-office operations, including SAGE 50/100/200, Golden, Quickbooks Enterprise as well as other versions, Oakstreet, Microsoft Dynamics, E-pic, and many others. If you have a smaller business, you may simply have an accounting program for invoicing and order management. Ecommerce sites includes any web site you’re using to sell product, whether wholesale or retail. And finally, integration means bringing the two systems together so they can communicate seamlessly.
Companies can achieve great efficiencies with integrated ecommerce and ERP systems. With integrated technology, your customer places an order on your web site, and it is automatically transferred to your accounting system, inventory management software, warehouse platform, fulfillment provider…whatever systems your company uses to manage your day-to-day business. The web site can also display information from your back-office systems, including inventory levels.
Some of the benefits of integrating your ecommerce site with your ERP systems include:
• Eliminate manual order entry (and associated errors) from your web site
• Show customers accurate inventory on your web site
• Notify customers when their orders have shipped with tracking options
• Increase order volume without increasing staff
