Guest Blog by ReferralCandy: Can Gamification Increase Customer Loyalty?

Friday, February 15, 2019Lauren Macdonald

Gamification is the application of game playing incorporated into everyday life. Businesses have started to gamify their marketing efforts in order to engage customers more. Gamification is a strategy that motivates the customer through gaming techniques.

 

Games are the only force in the known universe that can get people to take actions against their self-interest, in a predictable way, without using force. – Gabe Zimmermann

 

When gamification is successful, it motivates the players to take action. It will also break tasks into manageable chunks and give the users a cue to complete tasks. Gamification can increase marketing ROI as customers share their accomplishments with their friends and family.

The Expansion of Headless Commerce: Guest Blog by JetRails

The Expansion of Headless Commerce: Guest Blog by JetRails

Wednesday, January 30, 2019Lauren Macdonald For many years, merchants have been forced to choose between a powerful eCommerce platform like Magento and a flexible Content Management System (CMS) like WordPress. While you could create a corporate site in Wordpress and a subdomain like “shop.” or “store.” for your eCommerce store, having two separate sites is not ideal. With your eCommerce website hosted on a subdomain, it’s more difficult to earn top search engine rankings as well as to maintain continuity between the sites. You end up managing two hosting environments, two themes and potentially require two admins to maintain two distinctive websites. Read More

Need to integrate ShipStation with Microsoft Dynamics AX/365, GP, NAV/BC, or SL? Here’s how we can help!

Need to integrate ShipStation with Microsoft Dynamics AX/365, GP, NAV/BC, or SL? Here’s how we can help!

Monday, November 26, 2018Lauren Macdonald ShipStation is one of the best platforms out there for enabling eCommerce merchants to import, organize, process, package, and ship their orders. It also comes with a wide range of features such as automated order importing, custom hierarchical rules, product profiles, fulfillment solutions, and more.

One thing merchants are noticing, however, is that ShipStation and Microsoft Dynamics ERPs like AX/365, GP, NAV/BC, or SL, do not natively integrate with the shipping tool. This means a lot of manual data entry to and from ShipStation for those merchants who sell their products online and use a Microsoft Dynamics ERP for their back-office.   Read More

How Leading Brands Are Processing Orders This Black Friday/Cyber Monday

How Leading Brands Are Processing Orders This Black Friday/Cyber Monday

Friday, November 9, 2018Lauren Macdonald Busy online brands and merchants find themselves in a major bind on Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend, when they’re forced to bring in staff and pay overtime to handle the spike in order volume. Each order made by a customer needs to be processed, picked, packaged, and shipped. And, many of these orders come back as returns.

The holiday season can be a logistical nightmare for the warehouse, the finance team, the IT team and operations.

Safari Ltd., seller of toys that teach, is one such brand that was in this bind a year ago.  Every order that came into their online toy shop kicked off manual human intervention. Because of this painful experience – when everyone had to work over the holidays – they made the decision to join the ranks of leading brands who have a much easier and faster method of processing their orders – with an integration platform as a service (iPaaS).

Become an ERP master | Creating invoices in NetSuite

Monday, November 5, 2018Lindsay Hampson We have a merchant that fulfills sales orders outside of NetSuite but uses NetSuite for their financial reporting.

Instead of creating a Sales Order, it made more sense to simplify the processing of an order within NetSuite. We made their integration flow 'create an Invoice' instead of 'create a Sales Order.'
