Why integrate with Brightpearl?

The Scenario

You built your new ecommerce store on an open source platform as it offers you the flexibility to expand your business. A cost effective alternative to a retail store, your new ecommerce store required less capital to start up.

Business is booming - great! You want to expand your business to other sales channels and you have invested in retail. Now all you need to do is manage multiple ecommerce stores, marketplace sales channels, ensure that stock is delivered and replenished, keep the customers are happy, oh... and keep up to date with your accounts!

Reality Check. 

Whilst you might have got a great product to sell, building or extending your ecommerce website into a thriving multichannel business is a massive task if you do not have the right tools in place. For any business, making the jump to the next level when you have limited resources can often prove time-consuming, costing the business and your sanity in the long run. 

In these situations, SMEs and those with limited capital to invest in new development often have to bridge the gaps with manual processes in order to ensure that customers receive the best online experience and the business continues to grow. 

Why we believe you should integrate your shopping cart with Brightpearl? 

Consumers shopping online are now able to buy in more ways than ever. From bricks and mortar stores to online shops, apps and marketplaces such as eBay and Amazon, you can now buy a product from the far corners of the world from the comfort of your own sofa. 

One of the most challenging aspects of ecommerce is staying ahead of the game. For Mr.Retailer, who has searched to find the right product to offer, at the right time and at the right place, this can prove to be a constant battle to ensure that you offer a seamless multi-channel experience to keep customers returning whilst also ensuring that stock and inventory levels remain up to date. 

That is one of the great things about Brightpearl. As consumer buying habits shift so will your ecommerce and the online retail experience. A constantly evolving piece of software, they are making regular enhancements to Brightpearl which means that you can become more dynamic and responsive to customers.
