4 Top Benefits of Connecting Your Back Office Tools

By Jeff Stuncard | August 30, 2023 | Tips and Tricks

When you are running a business, whether it be a brick and mortar store or eCommerce site, you may find yourself working with many different software solutions. It can be tedious and time consuming to keep all of your systems up-to-date. It can be frustrating working to ensure that they are all communicating accurately and efficiently with one another, but these are all necessary pieces of the puzzle when you are running a business. 

Or are they? 

While all of the individual systems you have in place may be necessary individually, keeping them working in harmony might be easier than you think. With the integrations we offer, you can easily set up workflows for your back office platforms. Here are some benefits of connecting your operations: 

  1. Increased Productivity – This may seem like a no-brainer. However, it stands to reason that when your back office solutions are functioning as one cohesive unit, you’ll free up more time to focus on your business. You started your business for a reason, and we bet it wasn’t just to enter and re-enter data into your platforms.
  2. Smoother Operations – When your business is operating efficiently, you’ll have happier employees who can do their jobs better. That increase in efficiency means an increase in the positive interactions they’ll have with your customers. It’s the circle of (integration) life. Everything can be so much easier and more manageable when you streamline your operations!
  3. Enhanced Visibility – When these are synced up and connected, you’ll gain greater visibility into the data that keeps your business running. If your business is operating with disconnected software systems, it’s vulnerable to big mistakes and human errors in data entry, or missing data entirely. Integrations act like a translator, talking about and to data from one system to another, without you having to do all of the manual work.
  4. Happier Customers – Think about why you’re really in business. In part, it may because you want to share the love you have for creating and selling your product with your customers who wish to purchase your product. When your platforms are communicating and sending information to each other, your processes are more efficient. In turn, you can provide a better experience for your customers. A customer doesn’t necessarily need or want to know what goes into making your business work, but if something with their experience goes off course, they are sure to notice.

At Flowlink, we’re committed to helping our customers find the right integration solutions for their business – even if they don’t currently exist (we build new ones all the time)! We’ll help you streamline your workflow by seamlessly enabling you to share information across all platforms. We’re ready, willing, and able to connect almost any software to your eCommerce operations.
