Ecommerce Inventory Management
Ecommerce inventory management entails the balance of product type, quantity, and cost for the greatest profitability of online sales. What is unique to ecommerce is the ability to operate as a fully functional store without necessarily having a physical brick-and-mortar location. At times, the key to on-time fulfillment is having strategic warehouse locations or a 3pl solution in place.
Highly functional inventory management software for ecommerce is the means to managing all product details and costs from end to end for the most thorough control over business expenses and decisions. When product is stored at different locations, for example, having a central database track total quantities as product moves in and out of different facilities is a big advantage over working with data segregated on spreadsheets. When product quantities vary because information about the product isn’t updated in real-time as it moves from one workflow to another, your business could risk stockouts, dead stock, lost sales, and lower profitability. SOS Inventory software is unique in its ability to maintain coherent data across multiple locations, whether tracking product just received, in production, or at any warehouse. SOS performs high end ERP software functions at a highly affordable price range that make it easy for any small business to take that first step towards better ecommerce inventory management.
QuickBooks Ecommerce Integration
Many small businesses turn to QuickBooks Online when they are ready to upgrade to a more sophisticated tracking system; however, QBO only provides very basic inventory features. Any business that wants to manage all backend inventory operations can quickly and easily add SOS Inventory’s advanced functionality to bi-directionally sync information with QuickBooks Online.
If you are currently working in a single ecommerce platform and want to add multi-channel ecommerce capabilities, your SOS Inventory account can send information to any platform using EDI software. SOS Inventory’s works with Shopify, BigCommerce, and additional shopping platforms through EDI and Zapier. Ecommerce inventory software integration can streamline work, save time and ensure your data is consistent across many platforms with no need to implement code to make them work. Ultimately, it will make your job easier and your information more accurate.
When your ecommerce software sends a sales order to SOS Inventory, that sales order will trigger any production steps associated with fulfilling that product order.
