Shopify Integration with ERP — The Ultimate eCommerce Tech Stack
About Shopify for eCommerce
Shopify’s Global ERP Program
Shopify’s newest Global ERP Program connects its eCommerce solution with a few of the most comprehensive Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions favoured by businesses around the world.
“Together, we’re driving a reinvention of enterprise commerce by giving our merchants the power to manage the complexity of their business operations at scale,” stated Shopify’s Vice President, Mark Bergen in a press release, “ERPs are some of the most complex integrations in the world. By making it easier to connect with them, we’ll transform how our large merchants provide commerce experiences.”
Acumatica is one of the first five that has launched its ERP integration with Shopify, bringing many unique data synchronization features and process automations to help lead eCommerce businesses to success.
Shopify and Acumatica Integration Benefits
The Shopify integration with ERP tackles all eCommerce needs, while bringing accuracy, efficiency, cost reductions, and growth opportunities. In this integration, data is seamlessly synced between Shopify and the ERP in real-time. It makes it easy for Acumatica ERP to build connections with other tools that are already made available through the Shopify App Store. Should a merchant seek to use a specific tool for shipping, distribution, order customization, or any other reason, this integration makes it easy to connect the tool’s data collection to both Shopify and Acumatica ERP.
Managing your eCommerce business with Shopify’s integration with ERP brings an assortment of benefits:
Seamless Connections Between Workflows
By connecting your Shopify operation with Acumatica ERP, you can get data on inventory, products, orders, and customer information that is all up-to-minute, complete, and consistent. With this useful data aggregated into the Acumatica solution, you can view real-time reports and data visualizations that show trends. Your ERP may reveal to you that a particular product line is doing exceptionally well or that a certain customer type favours discounted products. This is useful for making both immediate small decisions and developing long-term strategies.
Boosted Efficiency and Reduced Costs
Your ERP and eCommerce solution will likely collect a lot of the same data, or require the same types of data to produce useful reports. Through real-time data synchronization, you eliminate the need to perform manual duplicate data entries that are time-consuming and often result in errors. Additionally, Shopify’s Global ERP Program completely eliminates the extensive time and costs that are ordinarily required to form a basic connection between your website, ERP, and other eCommerce management systems. Juggling less applications reduces costs and keeps everyone on the same page.
Advanced Data Visibility and Control
Real-time data is especially important for eCommerce businesses because it provides insights into how certain product lines or campaigns are performing. It also allows you to more easily spot errors and take action quickly. In the Shopify integration with ERP, every entity, including Products, Orders, Customers, and Discount Codes, is securely passed back and forth between Shopify and Acumatica. You can set data synchronization to be done automatically in real-time, by a schedule, or manually with a click of a button. You can also add filters to incoming and outgoing data and achieve the same data syncs on custom fields. To level up your data analysis, you can also receive Shopify metafield data that is attached to products, customers, orders, or other objects on your website.
