Why you need drop ship automation for Magento 2

Jun 8, 2017 12:00:00 AM / by Becca McCarthy

It is no secret that numerous successful retailers and brands rely on Magento to power their ecommerce business. In fact, Magento was named a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Digital Commerce. With a robust out of the box solution and extensive partner network, it is no wonder that Magento received such prestigious recognition, or that more and more merchants are adopting Magento 2. With the wide variety of tools available, Magento merchants can expect serious growth. With great growth can come plenty of bottlenecks. Fortunately, there is a way to add time-saving automation tactics to your storefront.

Magento 2 customers can now quickly enable the Logicbroker extension to take advantage of all Logicbroker platform capabilities. The extension provides complete EDI and drop ship automation with suppliers & 3PLs. In addition, merchants can easily send and receive orders, tracking information, acknowledgments, and inventory via CSV, XML, EDI, the Logicbroker API or a web-based supplier portal.

In addition to providing incredible efficiency to Magento 2 stores, Logicbroker offers a robust supplier portal that gives merchants’ vendors the ability to fulfill orders and generate branded packing slips. The Logicbroker extension supports partial shipments and tracking information is automatically updated in Magento 2 as the supplier ships. This triggers a store-branded email notification directly from Magento 2. By harvesting the power of EDI, merchants can create new business opportunities and rapidly onboard suppliers while expanding their product offering.

To successfully compete in the ever- changing world of digital commerce, merchants need an extension that meets their specific demands. With the Logicbroker extension, the developer community is given the flexibility needed to fit their unique environments. The extension also connects directly with the Logicbroker API, giving merchants instant visibility to their supply chain data and the drop ship order lifecycle.

With this level of automation, Magento merchants can easily add trading partners to expand their inventory offerings. Virtual inventory provides clients a wider product range and can help to ensure there is sufficient inventory to help minimize out of stock merchandise. By leveraging the power of the Logicbroker extension, merchants can provide the exceptional digital commerce experience today’s consumers expect.
