Your Sage ERP is the lifeline of your business. The quality of data in it affects almost all departments – sales, marketing, finance, operations, and more. It’s crucial then that your team has control over how, when, and what data moves in and out of Sage especially when it comes to your online orders and customers from Shopify. One way to control that flow of data is through integration and automation.

Sellers operating Magento and NetSuite separately aren’t getting the most value out of their platforms. Instead, sellers spend most of their time manually moving critical data like online orders and fulfillment between these platforms, which easily leads to data errors. Teams then aren’t confident in the accuracy of their data and spend too much time fixing their own mistakes for customers.
To overcome these challenges, sellers need to integrate their Magento webstore with their NetSuite ERP. Integration automates your business processes so you can get back to growing your business and stop wasting time policing your data.
Many sellers don’t realize that operating with disconnected systems can hold your online growth back. You invest in an ERP like Sage and in eCommerce platform like Shopify, BigCommerce, or Magento, but are you getting the most out of your systems?
Ask yourself these questions:
- Are you operating as efficiently as you can?
- How much time do you waste manually moving data between your systems?
- Do you focus more on fixing your data mistakes or creating better customer experiences?
If you don’t’ have satisfactory answers to all those questions, then you’re ready to integrate your Sage ERP system and eCommerce platform. Learn why you need to integrate Sage and how to pick the best integration solution for your business.(more…)
Online flash sales are a popular strategy to drive revenue. Successful sales can increase a merchant’s sales from 50/day to over 10,000 in a single 24-hour period. This is great for your revenue, but can undoubtedly put major stress on your operations during and after the sale.
When not handled properly, flash sales can quickly turn into disasters for merchants. Your website can crash or stall. Orders can take forever to process. Inventory can oversell. Once disaster hits, it’s hard to see why you wanted to run a flash sale in the first place. When poorly executed, sales can lead to upset customers, lost sales, and erode your brand image.
While the risks of failed online flash sales are real, they can be avoided!

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.
While Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) is a popular third-party fulfillment service, it’s not for everyone. This post helps you compare top alternatives to FBA.(more…)
