A Single System for an Omnichannel Sales Environment
You manage your brick-and-mortar businesses on one system. Manually input all your eCommerce sales into a separate accounting system. Do you still track stock on a spreadsheet? Your sales teams each have separate spreadsheets to manage leads and track closed opportunities. Wait! Why not consolidate your operations, inventory, accounts, sales, CRM, and inventory management into a centralized system and allow enterprise-wide collaboration and visibility? In this guide, we discuss using a single system for an omnichannel sales environment.
Whether you sell B2B, B2C, or direct to the customer, you require a strong connection between your front-end sales engine and back-end accounting system. In the current business ecosystem, omnichannel sales have become the norm. Businesses that, before the pandemic, only operated offline through physical store locations have had to deal with new challenges of incorporating an eCommerce aspect to their business.
Common challenges for new eCommerce businesses
Let’s face it. eCommerce is no longer just a nice-to-have. Secondly, it’s a bit more than having your tech-savvy cousin set up a Shopify, Wix, or WordPress eCommerce website. You need to consider how you’re going to ensure that the stock available online is in sync with the stock at the store.
You have one last item in stock. What happens when a customer makes an order online while another walks into the store. Do you have a system in place to ensure that both your eCommerce and retail stores are accurately tracking stock availability to avoid disappointing customers?
Let’s assume you indeed got your cousin to set up your Shopify website. Sales are booming but, you soon realize how time-consuming it is to export that sales data and manually capture it onto your accounting system. It is why business leaders need to consider investing in a single system for an omnichannel sales environment.
