According to Prolific North, worldwide retail ecommerce sales grew by a staggering 27.6% last year. In 2021 there is a further projected 14.3% growth, forecasting over £611bn in ecommerce sales.
This demand growth has seen a major increase in small businesses selling online. Whilst clearly a profitable avenue to venture into, it is common to see these businesses struggle to manage the demands of running an online store due to a lack of integration. Often small businesses have a variety of systems to handle processes such as sales, customer relations and accounting. With these systems unable to communicate in real time, hours are often spent manually transferring information between each system.
For many, this is the case when managing the accounting side of business through software such as Sage Accounting and online sales through popular ecommerce platforms such as WooCommerce. To connect these two systems for automated data transferring many believe a background in coding is required. However, the simple solution to this is Cloud Data Exchange.
What is Cloud Data Exchange?
A product of Eureka Solutions, Cloud Data Exchange is a data integration tool which enables both cloud and on-premise systems to communicate in real-time. Allowing businesses to automatically share data between platforms where communication is currently impossible and manual intervention is necessary.
So, how can Cloud Data Exchange benefit a business running Sage Accounting and WooCommerce?
Our Cloud Data Exchange connector allows those with Sage Accounting and WooCommerce to automatically import and export stock items between both systems, not only removing duplication of effort but maintaining accurate product information for customers at all times.
Not only can you transfer stock items to WooCommerce but also stock prices and stock levels, making sure your customers never face the dreaded “out of stock message” or purchase an item at an incorrect price.
Perhaps the greatest benefit of the Cloud Data Exchange tool is the ability to automatically send sales invoices from WooCommerce to Sage Accounting, increasing the speed of the fulfilment process whilst freeing up multiple man hours.
Our simple Sage Accounting plugin requires minimal set-up and can have you automating the transfer of data within minutes. Not only that but Sage Accounting and WooCommerce benefit from data automation from £50 per month, making it an incredibly cost-effective way of improving you and your customers WooCommerce experience.
