For many, managing the accounting side of business through QuickBooks, and ecommerce sales through a website leads to hours of time spent manually transferring data between the two in order to keep both up to date.
The process of transferring data manually is time consuming and costly. By failing to integrate your website with QuickBooks, hours will be spent transferring data such as orders, customers and payments; time that could be better spent focusing on your business.
Manual data transfer is also a process which is prone to human error. When entering lots of data from one system to another, it can be easy to slip up. These errors could have a negative impact on both your customer and your business.
Imagine the following scenario; you make an error when inputting a shipping address from an order on your website into QuickBooks. What happens if this error leads to your customer not receiving the product they have ordered? Small errors like this one are easily made during manual data transfer but can have a significant impact on your business.
Another key barrier which arises with manual data transfer surrounds inventory. Without automation, you are required to manually update stock levels on your website. This is obviously a process which will be done on a regular basis, but not constantly. The problem which can arise from this is that a flurry of orders could lead to you overselling a product. This means you risk being unable to meet a customer’s order in the time promised as you will need to restock the product.
By integrating QuickBooks with your ecommerce website, all the above can be avoided. Processes that were previously manual can be automated, eliminating the risk of human error, while also saving you valuable time and money.
