United Legwear & Apparel Co. use eBridge Connections' Universal Integration Platform to Automate Data Between Their Fun Socks Shopify Store and Their ERP
Founded in 2017 by Isaac E. Ash, Fun Socks is part of a lifestyle brand that encourages people to have real fun with self-expression. According to their website, Fun Socks reflects the attitude and vibe of New York: Fashion-forward yet classic, edgy, outspoken and most of all, FUN.
But as Fun Socks became popular and their online Shopify business took off, the fine folks at Fun Socks and United Legwear & Apparel Co., quickly realized that there was nothing “fun” about manual data entry between their online shop and back-office ERP.
The Situation: Manual data entry was taking the fun out of selling Fun Socks.
Who doesn’t love ordering fun pairs of socks online?
As orders came flooding in through Shopify, the team at Fun Socks were finding themselves buried in data entry and knew that they would never be able to keep up with demand if they couldn’t create a more efficient process.
IJ Ash, Assistant VP - MIS and Candace Williams, EDI Manager at United Legwear & Apparel Co. decided to reach out to eBridge Connections for help solving their data flow challenges so that order, inventory, shipment, and other important data would flow seamlessly between their ERP and Shopify.
The Solution: eBridge Connections’ universal integration platform was able to pull data from Shopify and convert it into an EDI format that could easily be pushed into their ERP.
With the help of eBridge Connections’ pre-built connectors for Shopify and ERP, the implementation team at eBridge was able to configure a solution that would pull Shopify data from Fun Socks online store and push it into the ERP so that no manual rekeying of information would be required.
Order, inventory, and shipment data is now pushed and pulled, bi-directionally, between Shopify and the ERP in near-real time for Fun Socks. This integration solution saves them dozens of hours a week on manual data entry and greatly reduces the likelihood of errors being made.
Here’s what Fun Socks integration flow looks like:
