To provide a consistent shopping experience and to improve eCommerce customer retention, Koopman first looked to link their existing ERP with their eCommerce platform. The client needed real-time automation for their stock and inventory, and wanted to add features within the eCommerce store to enhance the user experience for buyers.
First, OST studied Koopman’s existing ERP in detail. Then, we mapped all of their products according to product categories and warehouse locations using RESTful API.
Since the inventory status of Koopman’s products and items is constantly fluctuating, our priority was to automate changes in inventory between their Shopify eCommerce store and their ERP. Using an API to link the two, we created a way to automate their inventory management. We worked on API(s) to update Shopify variants, inventory quantities, prices and range of products.
After we integrated Koopman’s Shopify eCommerce platform with their ERP, the client no longer needed to monitor or manually adjust the product stock on the eCommerce store.
Our team of Shopify experts team worked on Shopify’s limitations. By analyzing and updating the backend code, We custom-developed multiple features, such as a custom search function, in-store pickup options, and a 4-level navigation menu with a default theme.
