Business Central & Shopify Integration is one of the most sought-after solutions these days. This blog discusses this solution in detail.
Shopify is, by far, the most popular e-commerce platform available today. Shopify is popular in the SMB market segment because it is affordable and user-friendly. Moreover, Shopify is a feature-rich, adaptable, and comprehensive e-Commerce platform. In addition to it, Shopify allows organizations to create their flexible online store with many built-in features and an array of apps. Likewise, Shopify is to eCommerce what QuickBooks is to ERP.
Why Integrate with ERP
In the post-COVID world, selling online is no more an option. Selling online is a must for the survival and growth of the business. Also, this new phenomenon of online presence is here to stay and not going to reverse. Furthermore, the fate of the companies is unsure in the future who refuse to ride the current wave.
The real issue that businesses face right now is to find a way to handle their web presence effectively. An online store requires continuous monitoring and data updating. This ensures that customers are given the choice and selection to evaluate, compare and buy the right products at the correct prices. This means that customers should not be allowed to add the items in the cart that the organization does not carry or that are not in stock.
For better customer retention, the requirement is to accept the order of only those items that are in stock and the ability to deliver them promptly. Since the inventory is dynamic, with the inventory balances changing, there is no way of manually updating the inventory balances on the web store.
The best tool available to the companies to keep their web store updated with the available quantities is to fetch the inventory quantities data from their ERP system. Quantities update continuously in an ERP and it's better to update eCommerce sites with ERP quantities.
The customers today are demanding. In fact, they expect the companies to keep their words of supplying the right product promptly at the promised time. This is possible with the instant availability of orders in the system so the warehouse ships them as soon as possible.
Downloading a web order right away in Dynamics 365 is important. It reduces the staff's manual work and chances of error and omission. Also, to inform the warehouse about the orders instantly and to ship goods swiftly, it is important to have integration between the two platforms.
