Consumers expect affordable (free), fast, and flexible delivery options when they order online. Free and discounted shipping is a leading reason why shoppers turn to marketplaces like Amazon to purchase. The “Fulfilled by Amazon” logo makes such a difference for shoppers because it guarantees that the seller will meet their shipping expectations.
Amazon’s advanced fulfillment system is one of their biggest differentiators. It also sets the bar high for merchants. Amazon has the resources and technology to provide customers with free and fast, even within 2-hour, shipping.
If you’re a smaller merchant though, order fulfillment is a painful process. It’s tough to meet the expectations set by Amazon for your customers. Many merchants then rely on third- party fulfillment providers to manage their fulfillment processes and protect their bottom line.

As merchants grow their business, so does their technology stack. Most merchants have multiple software systems to run their business to help with everyday tasks like inventory management, order processing, shipping, accounting, payment processing and customer management. The list keeps going.
One of the more important technology investments you make is in an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system. Your ERP can quickly become the backbone of your business and where most your processes are taken care of like orders, inventory, financial, customer, and supplier information. The challenge then is how you share the information from your ERP into your other critical systems like your eCommerce, POS, and 3PL systems.
Many turn to system integration to automate data between their systems, but ERP integration projects can seem overwhelming. If you’re considering integrating your ERP, learn what the benefits and challenges are of integration projects.(more…)

Many Shopify merchants don’t realize that operating with siloed software systems is holding their online business back. While having an ERP like NetSuite is an important investment in your operations, so is integrating it with Shopify and Shopify Plus. Without integration, your NetSuite implementation is likely costing you more than you realize.
Ask yourself these questions:
- Are you operating as efficiently as you can?
- Are you able to focus on your customer and selling instead of bookkeeping?
- How much data do you manually enter between Shopify/Shopify Plus and NetSuite?
If you don’t have a satisfactory answer to all three of those questions, it’s time to look at integrating Shopify and NetSuite.
This post discusses why you need to integrate Shopify and NetSuite and how to pick an integration approach that’s best for you. (more…)
