Inventory management is essential to any eCommerce operation. Maintaining the right amount of stock in your storage can really affect your profitability.
Keeping a completely accurate inventory can be the difference between turning a profit or making a loss.
There are two essential parts of proper inventory management:
Ordering the right amount of stock
Making sure no stock is lost in the warehouse
Cloud Commerce Pro has built-in systems to make sure of both.
Auto Purchase Option
Running out of stock can cost you sales. Selling when you’re out of stock – overselling – can cost you, both in money terms and in terms of frustrated customers. But overstocking means increased storage costs and more of your money tied up in stock.
To make sure you’re always ordering the right amount of new stock, we designed a purchase automation system. As you set up on the system you can set a minimum stock level for your products. This level can be modified as time goes on, to deal with changes in supplier relationships, increases in demand, etc.
Once an order on your Amazon store takes your inventory below your pre-set minimum for a product, an automatic purchase order will be generated by the system to bring your stock back up to another pre-set value. A single click to approve it will send that order on to your supplier.
Maintaining Seller Fulfilled Prime
Crucial for Prime sellers is speed:
Speed of order dispatch
Speed of shipping
Speed of customer response
As you’ve already seen, our system streamlines order picking and packing, making dispatch faster.
We integrate with over 20 couriers and shipping logistics firms. By setting up custom rules, your Cloud Commerce Pro system can be set to automatically select the best service for each order, based on weight, price, destination, and priority.
We also offer a centralised Message Centre. This was designed with Seller Fulfilled Prime sellers in mind – it includes automatic, configurable autoresponses to improve your response speed metrics. You can also set up alerts to let you know when a given message has gone unanswered for too long.
How do you quickly take and process an order over the phone or on-site?
Multi-Channel Solutions for Multi-Channel Retailers
For many retailers, their Amazon Seller account is just one sales channel. eBay, their own eCommerce site, or a physical retail outlet can be just as important.
This makes inventory management more of a challenge, but one that’s easily solved through Cloud Commerce Pro. Our system is designed as a multi-channel solution. Stock sold through one channel automatically syncs to the others in real time – so you’ll never accidentally oversell.
