You’ve got a store to run, you shouldn’t be doing data entry, scrambling to find inventory, losing orders, and juggling an eCommerce website too. That’s where we come in. At Retail Dimensions, we’ve spent the past 15 years helping small business owners to grow their sales through seamlessly integrating the most popular eCommerce platforms with their favorite Point of Sale systems in ways that dramatically improve business. Our hands-off service takes your favorite eCommerce platform — Shopify, Woocommerce, BigCommerce, Magento, and many others — and integrates every detail with your Point of Sale. Never be concerned about cross-platform inventory management, customer order tracking, product specification updates, and other administrative headaches and also find new opportunities for sales that you may not have yet considered! We make it easy to offer customers in-store pickup, web-to-store discount codes, and much much more.
Here at RDi, we believe that the only good integration is one that’s custom to your business. You have unique business processes, goals, needs, and operational details that plug-and-play may not serve well. That’s why we work directly with you to make integration between your web shop and brick-and-mortar store custom-fitted and stressless.
The fact is, technology has come a long, long way since the dawn of the internet and eCommerce platforms. What used to be incredibly complex to jump into is now easier than ever — if it it’s still not all that easy for everybody. That said, with each use-case there are specific considerations that come into play when selecting a web store platform or POS. Outside of our own software service here at RDi, technology really hasn’t successfully made integration across all of the various combinations of platforms easy yet. That’s why we’re here. We’ve helped hundreds of business owners like you to “stress free” tie their online shopping sites to their in-store systems to make the life of running a retail store just a little easier. We can help you too.
The most popular POS system that we work with is, by far, RetailPro. It is an actively evolving Point of Sale that is great for retail shops and it has a number of capabilities that make integration with eCommerce platforms effective. While there are many popular ecommerce / web shopping platforms available, we’d say that Shopify is most popular for small product-catalogue shops and especially those with their own products. Magento, on the other hand has some amazing functionality if you can get past the learning curve and it’s popular with larger catalogue retailers for that very reason.
Most integration can be done in less than 30 days and you won’t see any meaningful platform downtime during this time. The speed depends entirely on how deep your inventory goes and the level of custom support you need. Our team is here to discuss the details for you specifically!
Your involvement is minimal but dependent on how far along you are already. If you have a functional and ready eCommerce platform AND POS system in place at your storefront, as long as these platforms work with RDi, we can make it fast and low-touch for you, the business owner. When business owners are at an earlier point in their platform development, however, we like to involve you to meet your needs closely. We like to be a collaborative partner with our business owner clients. In this way, RDi is your partner in business success.
