eBay isn’t just for consumer auctions anymore. Retailers and Distributors are now taking advantage of eBay’s reach (as well as Amazon) to get rid of excess inventory and even reach new markets. eBay has made launching an eBay store, Dutch Auction or even traditional auction a relatively easy endeavor, however without integration, managing items, inventory, sales orders and customers can become chaotic.
Microsoft Dynamics Retail Management System (RMS) provides retailers with a complete point of sale solution that streamlines operations and increases revenue. One of the strengths of Microsoft Dynamics RMS, (as well as the complete line of Microsoft Dynamics Business Solutions), is its ability for developers to integrate it with different software solutions. This is vitally important in todays retail environment as many businesses look to extend their selling efforts to include web stores and marketplaces. That includes a site like eBay, which can quickly provide expanded reach and increased revenue streams for brick and mortar retailers.
