Problem

Good to play (GTP) started out solely as an e-commerce store utilising Shopify. However, they outgrew Shopify’s inventory and dispatch functionality and required a solution that was more dedicated. They also moved from utilising a 3PL (Third-party logistics provider), to bringing the warehouse and dispatch in-house. This meant they needed a system that was very thorough from picking and packing to final dispatch.

It was decided that Shopify could not cope with this and another system was required.

 

Solution

The solution was Cin7, one of the most powerful cloud-based inventory systems in the market. Cin7’s strength is in its connectivity to different applications. The Shopify connection was no problem for Cin7.

The order, picking and dispatch system is one of the strong points for Cin7 and this was achieved quite effortlessly. They also wanted specific locations and bins to assist them in packing quicker, this was also implemented for them.

 

Final Thoughts

In my opinion, Cin7 is the best-connected cloud-based inventory management system currently in the market. When I say “connected”, I mean Cin7 can connect to Shopify, Magento, eBay and Amazon (plus many more), and not skip a beat. Most other solutions currently tend to have a heart attack and seem to work so hard to achieve the same results that Cin7 does with such ease.
