Automotive Shopping Cart Web Order Import

When you are getting a few orders a week it makes sense to simply receive a web order email or log onto your admin portal and print a copy. From there you enter the web order using your sales order entry or accounting software.

The problem begins when you start doing 30, 40, 50 web orders a day. Not only is this time consuming for someone at the company sitting behind a computer key punching all of this data in but it takes time away from other tasks.

We all get busy with phone calls, customers coming into the shop and things just bogging us down. By the time we get around to entering those web orders from yesterday it has been well over 12 hours from point of cart entry. The quantity you had on hand at the time the order was checked out of cart was enough to satisfy the order. However you have been selling parts all morning long to retail and wholesale customers. By the time you get around to entering the web orders into your inventory control / sales order entry system you are already negative QOH and now the part is on back order.

With an automotive shopping cart by Cartanium and Auto Plus on the back end this issue becomes a thing of the past. Inventory quantities on hand will never again be out of balance. Auto Plus downloads and imports all web orders from Cartanium in real time. Auto Plus then creates picking tickets for each order 24 hours a day so your inventory quantities on hand are always accurate.
