Give your e-commerce business a boostFebruary 21, 2022
As your business evolves—and with it your e-commerce footprint—it is wise to ensure that your business is positioned to handle customer expectations and the operational demands of e-commerce.
Poor preparation can devastate your process. Since e-commerce can generate a new volume of business, it is critical to anticipate change and growth to prevent the subsequent poor customer experience and ultimately a loss of sales the can come with a lack of planning.
While staying ahead of the game can be challenging, connecting your e-commerce platform to your ERP system should be your priority, especially with the evolution of your business. Consider that perhaps your initial e-commerce investment and setup allowed for manual processing of data related to product content, inventory, and order fulfillment. As your business grew, these processes showed signs of diminished return on the investment, therefore increasing operating costs and resulting in the loss of data integrity.
As development changes can become onerous and costly, you may realize the impact through negative feedback from sales and operations.
The solution: Ensure your e-commerce applications are integrated directly to your ERP.
This straightforward process boasts a great return on the investment using available cloud-based API connectors to communicate with the ERP. Enabling seamless data flow and transactions allows for increased accuracy and timeliness, resulting in precise real-time data sharing and consolidated operational workflows, with greater visibility across the entire process—and your organization.
Your business can also benefit from the ERP with cloud-based mobile applications. With cloud and mobile applications, you gain access to constant two-way sharing of information related to customer information, product content, pricing, inventory, customer information, order fulfillment, and returns. In addition, cycle times are reduced, dependency on manual processing is lessened, and profitability is increased by implementing automation.
