Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) is a convenient way for businesses to free up time, reach more customers, and drive profitable growth. Use FBA to eliminate the headaches of storage, shipping, and customer service and focus on what you do best. The process is simple: store your products in Amazon’s fulfilment centers, and Amazon picks, packs, and ships them directly to your customers. They also provide customer service, process returns, and offer a dashboard that allows you to track your inventory and create ads targeted to customer searches. You pay for FBA as you go – Amazon only charges you for storage space and the orders it fills.
FBA packs a powerful punch by saving time and aggravation while also handling your data and transactions. And you’ll need the time for moving valuable information to your accounting or enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution.
Things get complicated here. As the middleman between two systems (yours and Amazon’s), you must transform data into a format acceptable for your ERP system. Transforming the data requires workflows, time, and manpower, and mistakes are costly.
Saltbox is the answer. It seamlessly connects FBA and your ERP solution so you can transfer data at lightning speed. The Saltbox Platform is Vision33’s cloud-based, integration-as-a-service platform that eliminates human error and maximises your ERP investment. Drag-and-drop functions within Saltbox’s visual data mapper convert your FBA data to your ERP solution’s format, and its engine moves information through the cloud with the power of AWS scaling, allowing it to handle an infinite data load. Most importantly, Saltbox allows you to keep a human involved in workflows or automate the entire data connection process.
