eCommerce integration for your business in Texas
Friday, January 27, 2017Lauren Macdonald
In the United States, online sales are expected to grow more than 17 percent this year, according to eMarketer
. One area seeing significant eCommerce growth is Texas. UPS spokesman Dan McMackin has said that the company plans to add about 3,370 workers in Houston to keep up with the growth in shipping from online shopping.
As the eCommerce industry expands in Texas, more and more retailers are looking at integration between their eCommerce websites and their accounting packages as a means to make business easier and more efficient.
Why online retailers in Texas are applying eCommerce integration solutions:
To automate data entry, eCommerce folks in Texas are connecting their eCommerce platforms (i.e. Shopify, Magento, BigCommerce, Volusion, Miva, etc.), or online marketplaces (i.e. Amazon, eBay, Walmart Marketplace, etc.) with their accounting/ERP systems (i.e. products by MS Dynamics, Sage, NetSuite, Epicor, Intuit, etc.).
With this integration, they’re able to automate their order data, inventory levels, customer information, shipping and tracking data, and more. As a result, they’re able to process orders faster and more accurately, keeping their customers happy and helping them grow their business.
Even better news? Businesses in Texas can integrate more than just their eCommerce websites…
An integration solution built using a universal connector, such as eBridge Connections’, can also connect accounting/ERP systems with CRM applications and EDI trading partners.
With a CRM integration solution, businesses can connect their accounting with Salesforce, MS Dynamics CRM, etc., in order to automate customer data, leads, partners, opportunities, etc.
If businesses are interested in selling their products in-store as well, they can use eBridge to connect their accounting/ERP system with big-box retailers like Home Depot and Walmart, in order to electronically exchange documents necessary for doing business (EDI).
