Kensium's Holistic Approach to eCommerce and ERP

09/03/2021 Categories: Articles

To elaborate further on the value proposition above, we specifically implement the BigCommerce and Magento eCommerce platforms, as well as the Acumatica ERP platform. Kensium also specializes in connecting eCommerce and ERP platforms so merchants can rapidly sync transactions and data between both platforms.  We have been at this for 15 years now, helping hundreds of retailers, wholesalers, and distributors optimize their sales channels in the eCommerce space. Out of these years of experience, partnerships, and successes, we've identified the three pillars needed to successfully sell and distribute online.  Our front-end eCommerce practice: Implementing the Magento and BigCommerce platforms, including Magento/BigCommerce support and maintenance and custom Magento/BigCommerce development. Our back-end ERP practice: Implementing and supporting the Acumatica cloud ERP system as an official Acumatica cloud ERP partner. Ecommerce – Acumatica connection: Developing, implementing, and supporting integrations that sync ERP and eCommerce data instantly, including the Magento-Acumatica Connector, the Acumatica-BigCommerce Connector, and the Acumatica-Shopify Connector.  The proof is in our people.

Where is your business going to be a few years from now? Will you be able to scale it with your current technology? If you want to pivot to a new business model, does your technology have the flexibility to support that?  Our goal is not to sell you on the platforms we implement. Our goal is to figure out what will work for your business and advise you on your best options, no matter what they are. When you work with Kensium, you are getting a lifelong partner that helps you as your business evolves. Just with no wedding ring. Let's say we initially implement a BigCommerce site for your business. A few years later, your business may have grown, and you've realized you need an ERP to keep track of inventory and distribution. Instead of gambling on a new partner, you know you have Kensium available to implement and connect your new ERP with your BigCommerce platform.  Here's one more analogy: If you're a race car driver, you may have one team dedicated to the mechanical side and one team dedicated to coaching your driving skills. But what if you had one super-team that does everything at once?  That's Kensium, a complete end-to-end service provider. Here's the proof:  Magento & BigCommerce - The Best of Both Worlds What makes us different is we understand how an eCommerce tech stack should look and function. Digital commerce is not just about the front-end eCommerce store (although that's still at the core of it). It's also about synchronizing your front-end and back-end systems.

Whether you prefer the flexibility of Magento or the ease of management of BigCommerce, we can design and implement an eCommerce website and/or a customer portal that fits your business and exceeds your customers’ expectations.  Look at the full suite of Kensium's services on our website to get a sense of how much our company can do for you.  Acumatica ERP - Your Business Command Center Every day we help merchants like yourself to get the most out of their back-office operations through Acumatica ERP implementations, customizations, and unique third-party integrations. Our vast eCommerce experience has positioned us as much more than an Acumatica VAR; We are Acumatica’s Official eCommerce partner.

Acumatica ERP - Your Business Command Center

Every day we help merchants like yourself to get the most out of their back-office operations through Acumatica ERP implementations, customizations, and unique third-party integrations. Our vast eCommerce experience has positioned us as much more than an Acumatica VAR; We are Acumatica’s Official eCommerce partner. We are the go-to tech partner for retailers, wholesalers, and distributors who want to optimize their operations through the Acumatica cloud ERP system.

Online merchants and distributors often use separate software systems for eCommerce, financials, warehouse management, and reporting. This approach leads to siloed operations and a lack of visibility across your organization.

Cloud ERP solutions are extremely powerful tools because they provide all these separate systems on a single platform. However, to harness their full power, you need a partner like Kensium. We implement Acumatica and integrate it with your eCommerce platform and any third-party extensions you need. Then, we provide Acumatica support and customizations to keep it all updated and operating seamlessly.

Ecommerce + Acumatica ERP - The Synchronization You Need

Focus on what’s important. Maximize efficiency and optimize data flow throughout your organization by connecting your online sales platform and your ERP system.

Kensium has seen the horror stories that occur from a lack of sync between a company's back-office management systems and front-facing eCommerce platforms. Low sales funnel conversions, false product availability, and error-prone manual data entry, to name just a few. 

That's why Kensium built our Connector series of products, to establish tight integration between your eCommerce platform and Acumatica. Whether you use Magento, BigCommerce, or Shopify, our Connectors ensure the data traveling to and from Acumatica is consistent and correct. 

We also helped develop Acumatica Commerce Edition, the Acumatica eCommerce solution that allows you to manage eCommerce orders, inventory, picking-packing-shipping, returns, customer support, and accounting from a single dashboard. It even has a native BigCommerce integration built-in.

When your eCommerce and ERP platforms are tightly integrated, expect the following: 

  • Product information (pricing, product details, availability) come from the ERP database. Any manual or automated show up immediately on the front end.
  • Customer transactions (sales, allocations, shipping instructions) go directly into your ERP's order management and inventory systems.
  • Order status from the ERP will be available to customers during the life of their transaction and beyond. Many eCommerce companies send status updates via email (order accepted, processing, order shipped, etc.). With tight platform integration, this information becomes available on the customer portal.

Kensium is the only certified partner that implements Acumatica, BigCommerce, and Magento, then fully syncs data and systems between the platforms. The result is consistent data flowing in real-time from the back-end to the front-end (and vice versa). There is no other Acumatica Value-Added Reseller (VAR) who can accomplish this type of end-to-end implementation. That's how we stand out from our competitors.

Let's Review: Why Kensium? 

Commerce Technology Table

Put all our pillars under our core mission statement, and you have Kensium in a single graphic. 

If you're looking for eCommerce help, our knowledge of back-end systems is valuable because we understand eCommerce beyond the interface. We know how to work with data and how it should sync. Our ERP/eCommerce integration knowledge helps us ensure your inventory is always reflected correctly on the website. That means there's no chance a customer will order something that appears to be available on the website when it's really out of stock. 

If you need a partner to implement Acumatica, we not only can implement its excellent out-of-the-box functionality, but Kensium can also implement custom features and extensions to service any gaps you find in your supply, financial, and fulfillment systems. Our products are carefully designed based on our direct experience with retailers, wholesalers, and distributors who need custom features that don't come out-of-the-box with Acumatica.

To summarize, we help retailers, wholesalers, and distributors to sell and distribute more efficiently by implementing Magento, BigCommerce, and Acumatica ERP, as well as the connection technology that gets all these systems working in tandem. 

If you're a mid-size merchant struggling to succeed in the digital era, Kensium may be the right partner for you.  Click here to contact us today and get started.
