LS eCommerce Magento

Introducing LS eCommerce Magento

Th importance of omni-channel retail has never been more prevalent than it is now. LS Retail and allonline365 now bring you the opportunity to take your business online. LS eCommerce Magento is a mid-market out-of-the-box eCommerce solution that can get your online business up and running fast. This easy to use end-to-end solution ensures all items, prices, discounts, order fulfillment etc. are maintained in the robust LS Central management system and seamlessly integrates with your eCommerce platform.

An end-to-end retail solution

It is critical to have the same customer experience regardless of which sales channel your customers use to purchase your products. Businesses are able to quickly and easily get their eCommerce platform up and running, but their problems start when their eCommerce platform does not integrate with their order fulfillment and finance systems usually supported by their ERP system. With two separate systems you don’t have visibility across your entire operation to track stock, view sales across all channels, store and warehouse inventory, manage loyalty and discounts etc. effectively between the two separate systems. This results in separate data and information that must be reconciled in order to gain a holistic view of how your business is performing. With LS Central and LS eCommerce Magento, all your business processes, stock, and sales information is recorded in one end-to-end solution.

Putting your customers first

Using a unified commerce system ensures all your business data is consistent across all your channels. From pricing, to items to product availability, your eCommerce system is in sync with your ERP solution with updated information in real-time. Having access to real-time data ensures you are always offering your customers stock items and promotions that are current and accessible. The Click and Collect option allows customers to choose if they would like their items delivered directly to their homes, or pick them up at their nearest store location. Once an order has been placed online for collection at a store, the staff at the store will be notified to put the item aside, and the order will be recorded in the centralized ERP system.

A multi-channel inventory module in Retail ERP

Why your retail ERP needs a good multi-channel inventory module

Merchandise management is what sets retail ERP systems apart from ERP designed for any other environment. Merchandise is the inventory a business has right now for sale to customers desiring those items. To have exactly the color and size a customer wants immediately available is the goal for any retail business. Further, it just arrived in minutes ahead of that customer and can be priced at an amount that begs that customer to buy immediately and yield a profit at the same time. Is this possible? Yes, most of the time, the right retail ERP system can help make it a reality.

Retail today goes beyond the physical storefront. ECommerce is a major part of retail now. Merchandise management is largely the same, you need the right item on hand and available for sale when the customer is online or present in the store. If your retail business trades online then it is essential that your centralized inventory module is fully integrated with your ECommerce system.

Cost and price management

COst of an SKU is closely related to the supply chain component of retail ERP. A successful retailer works closely with current suppliers to stock merchandise that a customer wants at the lowest possible total cost. Supply chain systems also connect to new suppliers who might have products even more desirable at even lower prices. The low initial cost is the first target. Total cost includes the ability to easily and quickly make returns to the supplier at little or no penalty. The cost can also include financial terms such as payment due after the sale. If the supplier can monitor sales and inventory levels using an inventory module, they can replenish fast-selling items without the need for a purchase order.

In addition, price management might mean a supplier can provide special, lower prices for seasonal or promotional merchandise. These cost and price management tools should be sought after in any retail ERP.

Retail stock ledger

An accurate count of each SKU on hand with separation by every size, color, and other distinctions is an important part of retail ERP. As customers pay for their purchases and leave the store, that stock ledger should be automatically updated. Return merchandise that cab still sold should be added to the ledger right away. Shrinkage or other unexplained loss of inventory is an unfortunate reality in retail and each SKU should have a reasonable rate used to adjust the ledger.

An accurate ledger helps determine when to replace replenishment orders. An accurate ledger also is a tool to monitor those items that do not sell so that they can be returned or moved to a store where a sale is more likely. An accurate ledger is a critical component in determining expenses and profit or loss over time.

Forecasting and planning

Retail has a strong seasonal element to it, so accurate forecasting activities are essential. ERP is a valuable tool to ensure an optimal profit in any season. How many soccer balls were sold last year in the weeks before the start of the season? What was the weather like last year and what is the weather forecast for this year? ERP doesn’t maintain all this data, but in retail, an ERP can match data it has with external data to predict how much to order and when to accept delivery. A supplier might make those soccer balls over months and make several deliveries to a warehouse to match your requirements against their ability to produce. Those early delivered soccer balls are a part of the stock ledger but also a liability as payment will not be made until the season begins.

These are key features of any good centralized inventory module. Know which ones are important in your particular business and be sure the ERP you select has the ones you need. LS Retail is a top-performing solution that can manage all inventory merchandise, forecasting, and omnichannel aspects of your business.
