Automate the flood of data coming at you as your sales rise.

Businesses have been taking to Amazon in droves to reach new markets and sell more products through Amazon Marketplace. The service has seen double-digit growth, because it’s an extraordinary opportunity for businesses—but there can be growing pains. And, knowing the complexity they might face, some companies may hesitate to dive into the program at all. As volume grows, reconciliation can be challenging. Your accounting department could face manual data entry for hundreds of new orders every day. And the transaction data doesn’t always line up with your ERP.

Amazon Marketplace Integration from Innovative Solutions can help. We’ve built a system that:

  • Interacts seamlessly with Amazon’s web services
  • Runs automatically, customized to complement your existing infrastructure
  • Translates order information and transaction data from Amazon to your ERP
  • Eliminates manual data entry, completing days-long jobs in hours
  • Aggregates Amazon orders into batches that your ERP system can understand
  • Lets you monitor the progress of orders as they’re packaged and shipped by Amazon

If you’re a retailer, this could be the ticket to get you started on Amazon.

We can help you take full advantage of the growth opportunity Amazon Marketplace represents—without fewer obstacles and more profit potential.

Sometimes, it doesn’t matter if ‘there’s an app for that’

As InformationWeek reported, some eye-popping forecasts came out of Gartner’s annual Symposium ITXpo this fall. The company revealed their top 10 predictions for the next several years of IT. My personal favorite is “By 2019, 20% of brands will abandon their mobile apps”.

 

Sounds absurd, right?

But I think this prediction is right on the money, based on trends we’re following at Innovative Solutions. And when you consider the total cost of ownership for native mobile apps, this prediction should come as a surprise.

I’ll let you in on a little secret:

Most customers who come to us to build a native app for them don’t really need one. At all. Often, they simply want their website to look its best and function elegantly on mobile devices. As Gartner notes, what people really want and need is a responsive website. One that seamlessly adjusts the user interface to the user’s device. Unless you need an app that interacts with the unique features of your smartphone or tablet (say, a camera, accelerometer, or GPS.) there’s no need to start dabbling in an expensive, elaborate apps.

Reality check:

Native mobile apps cost 10X more to create and maintain than responsive websites. Which takes us back to total cost of ownership. Factor in the ongoing costs of maintenance and quality assurance, and you may have a shiny new native app you never needed—and will cost a small fortune to tend to.

Our team talks to customers all the time about how to reach their audience on a multitude of digital devices.

The landscape is shifting and you want to keep up. We get it. But when the conversation turns to your brand presence on mobile devices, turn to us. We might be able to spare you from a cost—and an ongoing responsibility—you can happily live without.
