Acumatica, the world’s fastest-growing cloud ERP company, has broadened its relationship with Shopify by supporting the development of the leading eCommerce platform’s new business-to-business (B2B) solution. Merchants can use Shopify’s solution to manage B2B and direct-to-consumer (DTC) stores in a single platform.
Building on Acumatica’s native Shopify integration, the new solution allows merchants to manage their back-office within Acumatica’s ERP whilst creating an enhanced customer experience on the front-end. Merchants can manage their entire B2B omnichannel sales experience in a unified solution that combines all essential business data without the need for manual data entry.
The company’s strategic relationship with Acumatica provides regular product developments and joint solutions to enable customer growth and seamless user experience through online and POS sales channels.
Josh Fischer, director of product management at Acumatica, said: “Our ongoing partnership with Shopify has allowed us to provide our customers with innovative business management solutions that help them scale their online and in-store retail operations. We worked closely with Shopify to develop a B2B solution that would seamlessly integrate with Acumatica Cloud ERP. The integration is designed to deliver a truly streamline buying experience to wholesalers and their buyers.”
Mani Fazelli, director of product, B2B at Shopify, said: “Our merchants have indicated their desire to sell wholesale and direct to consumers from one online store. To meet this growing demand, we’ve worked to build powerful features that B2B merchants need directly into the Shopify platform. Acumatica has added value to Shopify customers by enabling them to manage and grow both sides of their businesses from one unified solution.”
The Shopify B2B solution will be available to Acumatica customers in two phases. Phase one will be complete in September 2022 as part of the company’s semiannual product update. Phase two will be complete in Q1 2023.
