Selling online is fast becoming an absolute must for all types of businesses. There are several benefits like generating awareness of your company and reduced administration costs, but you are probably aware of these already. So having an eCommerce site is a good idea, but you need to consider the implications further.
How easily can you maintain it? What payment options will be available? Will you offer discounts? Is it optimized for search engines?
One question in particular stands out, “How easily can you maintain it?”
Administration is too often overlooked and many people don’t realize the implications of a poorly organized eCommerce solution. Efficiency is important, to cut down on costs and improve staff morale, no one likes doing unnecessary repetitive work, and that’s where Sage integration comes in.
By using sage integration there is no need to re-key product information, stock level information or pricing information, and this is all done in real-time. Orders from your website can also be automatically imported into Sage. Most of your eCommerce administration can be managed through Sage and the process can be as automated as need be. There is no need for staff too learn how to use a new eCommerce administration panel to add products or view orders, they can do it all through Sage, which is something they are more familiar with.
Sage Line 100, Sage MMS and Sage 200 can all be integrated with your web-shop. Or if you use another accounts package like Opera this could also be catered for.
