Simplify and Streamline Your Ecommerce and More
Retailers who ignore the internet are going to have a hard time staying in business. But retailers who attempt to be active in ecommerce also have a hard time because it can be difficult to keep all the data accurate. So, how can retailers handle the complications of having multiple channels? By using software like ChainDrive’s ecommerce Gateway.
Keep It Simple
ChainDrive uses a centralized database that enables all kinds of functions that retailers need. The shared common set of data makes it simple to see exactly what you have in your inventory no matter where it is because you see inventory status in real time. You can keep track of client web purchase details, identify supply chain snags, and more.
The ecommerce Gateway component of ChainDrive’s Integrated Retail Management solution links the website and the back office and everything else in your enterprise. That simplifies and streamlines the way your data is processed:
- Product creation can be managed centrally.
- Price changes can be initiated and monitored.
- Inventory can be tracked in real time.
- Fraud rules can be managed.
- CRM data can be captured, analyzed, and used effectively.
- Order fulfillment and shipping can be streamlined.
- Reporting and analytics can be optimized.
- Third party interface can be synchronized.
- Tracking can be accurate in real time.
Each of these functions needs to be done effectively in order to be competitive. But unless it is done in a simple, streamlined manner there will be more complications than retailers need.
Make It Streamlined
The centralized database enables a streamlined approach to retail management and the many channels that today’s retailer operates on. Streamlining is the result of eliminating the things that obstruct movement.
Streamlining your data infrastructure makes it simple to pass orders from the online shopping cart directly to the fulfillment process and then process the payment when the shipment is confirmed. Inventory control that is streamlined maximizes your sell-thru and minimizes stock-outs while it facilitates order fulfillment and shipping. Customer relationship management that is streamlined gives associates accurate information so customers can be served in the ways they prefer. Linking the online store and the centralized database streamlines the updates of product information so your site is reliable and consistent.
