What is eCommerce Integration
eCommerce website integration is the linking to ensure coordination between the company’s eCommerce website and back-end IT tools like accounting SW, Inventory Management systems, CRM systems ERP system or any other Home grown SW etc..
Proper integration enables the flow of information bi-directionally between the two systems meaning data only NEEDS to be entered into one system ONLY once. This results in various efficiencies such as inventory levels automatically getting updated, once product is sold on the eCommerce site and website gets updated once product is gets received into a warehouse and added to inventory.
Many businesses choose to fully integrate both systems as it means inventory and pricing information is available to customers and staff in real-time and as demand increases the need for additional staff to handle transactions is minimized.
