BigCommerce Integration case studies
Here at DSYNC we spend time talking to a wide variety of BigCommerce partners, retailers and implementors. We find different examples where businesses have selected best of breed software and would like to connect them all together. In this post we would like to share a few common case studies where we see customers creating efficiencies by making their systems talk to each other. We see common data flows between systems with partners creating efficiencies between systems. View more about BigCommerce here at the BigCommerce blog

What systems are we seeing being connected?
We have seen an increased demand for connecting BigCommerce to Point of Sale systems. DSYNC have partnered with NCR Silver and Revel Systems who both provide great IPAD based POS units. Both POS systems are easy to set up have a vast range of in-built CRM, Inventory, Product and POS features and are an affordable option.
IPAD point of sale devices are trending as they are affordable, scalable, have good API access and can handle the volume. DSYNC is seeing a trend away from traditional legacy-based Point of Sale systems.
How does DSYNC help? DSYNC connects customer, product, inventory, and ORDER data between BigCommerce and the Point of Sale systems. A key data flow would be synchronizing data from the main inventory source with BigCommerce, plus having the ability to pull ORDERS from BigCommerce back into the POS unit.
Keeping the right stock and quantity levels when you are selling in multiple channels can be a challenging task. DSYNC partner with inventory platforms such as Unleashed software where we are able to offer customized integrations and special requirements to the partner or the customer.
How does DSYNC help? We work with the partner or the client on the data flows. If something is sold on BigCommerce then it must deduct here and push the order to the right location. We work with our BigCommerce partners as they implement these integration processes with their clients.
