Websites offering a multi tasking ecommerce service to a consumer mean successful online business. With integrated web management and stock control systems, accounting and purchasing can be controlled in addition to the stock which means running an online shop, or ecommerce business, is made much simpler than before.
When considering a stock control system, ‘System as a Service' – in which businesses integrate most, or all, of the systems on which the business is run.
Having a stock system that is controlled and can handle use by many users can be paramount to smooth running of an ecommerce business, and indeed integrating stock control does ensure other sectors of a business run well and without glitch.
Some features of a recommended stock control system are:
- Accuracy – a live system that updates in real time to ensure stock reports taken at any time are correct, invoicing is made easier as is auditing and planning
- Automated – systems which update as a customer clicks and pays
- Allocation – stock allocation capability in which the system can fulfil and confirm orders to customers, then pass details to staff for invoicing
- Integrated – an integrated stock system can ensure other areas of your business are enhanced by ensuring other departments outside stock and warehousing are kept up-to-date – no more need to update the system on a daily basis
- Linked in – EPOS and Ecommerce go hand in hand, linking a stock control system in with alternative areas can ensure systems are updated and reports are accurate
With even more of the above, a web based integrated system can allow for reports to be generated and downloaded into a windows based application such as Excel for further adaptation.
Powerful order processing and a strongly structured stock control system allows you to run your online shop in a professional manner. Being able to tell your customers whether something is in stock when they click offers them one more reason to come back.
Successful software makes for successful online business or shop – running ecommerce made simple.
