Acquiring and maintaining accurate inventory quantities is a problem common to most all eCommerce retailers — from overselling (aka out of stocks, aka stockouts), mis-picks, and mis-ships, to forgotten stock sitting on a shelf, not even listed for sale. Our system, SkuVault, helps to greatly reduce those inventory issues, and many other problems online retailers face.
SkuVault is a cloud-based inventory and warehouse management system that integrates with ChannelAdvisor, Amazon, eBay, ShipWorks, ShipStation, Bigcommerce, Shopify, Magento, Volusion, and more, and is complete with barcoding and jam packed with other cool features to help e-commerce retailers prevent out of stocks, improve warehouse efficiency, and reduce human error. SkuVault deals with your actual, physical inventory, scanned into and out of your warehouse, and then uses this real time data to sync to ChannelAdvisor.
The SkuVault & ChannelAdvisor integration ensures that the product in your warehouse is reflected in listings on all your marketplaces. Anytime there’s a change that affects the quantity of a SKU available for sale, that SKU’s quantity is updated across all of your ChannelAdvisor sub-accounts. No SKU is left behind with our “SKUs missing in ChannelAdvisor” report that shows all SKUs that have quantity in SkuVault, and yet don’t exist in ChannelAdvisor. Conversely, SkuVault is able to generate another report, the “SKUs missing in SkuVault” report, which reveals all SKUs that have quantity in ChannelAdvisor, yet aren’t represented in SkuVault. This sync occurs automatically every thirty minutes, to ensure that all quantity differences are rectified. SkuVault also performs a nightly comprehensive sync to provide updated lists daily.
The benefits of our SkuVault & ChannelAdvisor integration are far-reaching, and its effects can be seen in lower out of stock percentage, increased rankings and therefore greater visibility on your online channels, more positive customer feedback, lower customer service costs, increased warehouse efficiency and saved man hours, and fewer mis-ships and undersells. SkuVault’s efficient pick lists, which utilize locations, means that you’ll always have a pick list that takes you around your warehouse to pick in a sensible manner, which helps you to pick faster. Full quality control features can be employed to ensure fewer mis-ships or shipping of damaged product, resulting in fewer returns and negative feedback. Advanced reporting of our quality control allows you to see just who approved the sending out of a defective or incorrect item, allowing you to easily identify the cause of difficult customer service issues.
SkuVault also supports a ton of other features to help out e-commerce retailers. A small sampling:
Our product kitting feature helps you to easily sell product bundles without worrying about bundle components’ quantities. Alternates help you to sell kits when kit components stock out.
SkuVault’s inventory audit, streamlined for fast-paced barcode scanning, makes cycle counts and physical counts easier than ever.
SkuVault’s hold feature turns daily deals from an arduous process, involving tedious physical reallocation of product, to as easy as selecting the SKUs to hold, and stipulating the dates to set aside the product.
Send out purchase orders and receive product from vendors with our POs & Receiving feature.
… and more!
