What is Omnichannel Commerce, and Why are Retailers Adopting it?
Gone are the days where you could setup a store and wait for customers to walk in. Today you need to travel the length and be where your customers are. Customers are making an informed purchase decision and visiting websites to complete transactions. Others stumble on products accidentally while surfing the net and decide on an impulsive purchase. If you are looking to target all these customers, you need to be present in all channels. You should invest in an eCommerce store, be present in marketplaces, and if you have the resources, then put a physical store as well. Customers should be able to buy from anywhere and get their orders fulfilled the way they want. Omnichannel commerce does just that. Provide customers a seamless shopping experience across various channels. To become an Omnichannel Commerce provider, the first step is to connect your Lightspeed Retail to the WooCommerce store. There are many benefits in integrating your Lightspeed POS with WooCommerce store.
- Better customer reach
- Significant improvement in customer experience and loyalty
- Increase in sales and traffic
- Better data collection
Automated Inventory Management
Managing inventory can be a nightmare when you have multiple stores. It is quite cumbersome to keep track of inventory and update them manually in all stores. The main advantage of POS eCommerce integration is the automation of inventory management. You need to update inventory information only once in your POS, and it gets automatically updated in the eCommerce store. Whenever you update something in the Lightspeed POS, irrespective of the location, it gets updated online. Data points that can get updated automatically include:
- Unique and expanded Item Title and Descriptions
- 30+ unique Lightspeed fields can be mapped to the WooCommerce store
- You can apply Safety Net Stock Rule to prevent over-selling
- Pricing details including Sale Price, List Price, MSRP, Cost, etc.
- Support for features like ‘Draft Items’; ‘Delete Out-of-Stock’; and ‘Matrix’ Items.
Automated Order Management
Automation of Order management is also another step that will enable you to manage your stores effectively. It enhances the buying experience and very often brings a customer back for a repeat purchase. Order automation also helps in updating stocks, avoid cancellations, minimize shipping costs and save hours by automatically routing and invoicing orders across locations.
- Set store preference and available quantities
- Automatically route ordered items to the chosen location
- Generate SO
- Segregate WooCommerce Orders from in-store
- Maintain separate ledgers for Taxes, Discounts, and Shipping Costs for WooCommerce orders
Automated Shopper Management
There are many ways to streamline your store management. Adopting an automated shopper management system is one of them. It identifies customers and segregates them into old and new, and then updates them into your POS. It ensures that there are no duplicate entries of customer data. The POS eCommerce integration comes with a built-in shopper management function and enables you to automatically download WooCommerce customer data into Lightspeed and categorize them correctly.
- Identify existing and new customers
- Avoid creating duplicate customers in Lightspeed
- Add new online customers into Lightspeed automatically
- Merge existing POS customers with the same eCommerce customers
- Download customer data – Billing Address, Shipping Address, Email, Phone, etc.
