The high cost of disconnected data: How integration can eliminate your data entry challenges

The high cost of disconnected data: How integration can eliminate your data entry challenges

Thursday, June 14, 2018Lauren Macdonald After spending some time chatting with retailers at IRCE 2018 in Chicago last week, one big takeaway was that disparate data across selling channels and back-office applications can be very costly for businesses.

Tons of merchants selling online and/or in-store stopped by our booth, all asking some variation of this common question: “How do I get my order, inventory, shipping/tracking, product, and customer data to flow automatically between my accounting/ERP system and my sales channels?”

These conversations all solidified what we already knew: There is value (both in time and money) to be gained from automating data flow across disparate business systems and applications so that they communicate effectively as one cohesive unit. Here's an article that explains how integration pays for itself.

What we didn’t know, is that there are so many merchants out there today who still have disconnected data, and aren’t even aware that a solution like ours exists to solve their data entry problems.

We’re ready to make it known!

For those still manually rekeying data between applications, allow us to introduce ourselves so that you know who we are, and how we’ve made it our mission for 25+ years to help merchants sell more efficiently, saving them time and money.
