Multi-Channel Technology

Single-channel distribution had an advantage of relative simplicity. Distributors thrived on strong customer engagement. eCommerce, and to a lesser extent mobility, is challenging that single-channel model, with the rise of multi-channel eCommerce. Online stores and marketplaces such as Amazon and Wayfair are both a new challenge and a new opportunity for many distributors.

  • Take advantage of high-traffic online marketplaces including Amazon, Ebay, Walmart and Overstock
  • Enhance connectivity to sales channels based in the cloud
  • Automatically maintain a single entry point for products across multiple catalogs, all synchronized with Inform ERP
