Katana’s Shopify order management integration ensures sales data synchronization

Direct-to-consumer (D2C) manufacturers on Shopify often struggle with managing and syncing sales order data between their manufacturing software and e-commerce store. Katana’s Shopify integration allows you to manage sales and production in one place — it also makes it easy to track inventory across multiple locations, both online and offline.

Katana cloud manufacturing software is also a certified Shopify Plus app that is used by thousands of product and sales managers.

Shopify store owners are aware of their inventory levels

Customers expect fast response rates in the digital era. Many directly-to-consumer manufacturers have experienced it first-hand, and some rely on third-party AI bots to handle simple questions for them to free up time.

However, there are no bots out there who can resolve an interrupted supply chain. You know the drill – customer made a purchase, you gave them a deadline, but there’s a delay with the delivery of raw materials that are needed for manufacturing products. Your attention is drawn to solving the problem and communication with clients can become clunky. Often you reprioritize your workflow, so you can use the little materials you have on hand to somehow finish the ongoing sales orders.

Katana’s Shopify order management system is your reliable assistant when facing these challenging situations. Katana enables live inventory management, which shifts every time a sales or manufacturing order comes in. There’s no need to modify data every time an order comes in because the system does that for you.

Shopify order management FAQs

Yes, you can handle order management on Shopify admin. In that regard, Shopify is a great tool for merchants and dropshippers who don’t make their own goods. However, Shopify’s basic options may not be enough for a manufacturer who sells directly to consumers and needs to track different inventory types.

Helping out manufacturers, Shopify has partnered with multiple third-party enterprises like Katana who can be found from Shopify’s apps store.

An order management function is responsible for coordinating and executing orders placed by customers. This can involve taking customer orders, processing payments, managing inventory, and shipping products. A company’s sales or customer service department typically handles order management functions. Sometimes, a separate order management team may be responsible for these tasks.

Effective order management ensures customers’ satisfaction with their purchase experience. It can also help to improve operational efficiency and reduce costs. Order management can provide valuable insights into customer behavior and preferences when done well.

Several software solutions are available to help streamline order management processes. These tools can automate order entry, invoicing, and shipping tasks. They can also provide real-time visibility into inventory levels and customer order histories. Order management software can be integrated with other business systems, such as accounting and CRM applications.

Order management process refers to receiving, tracking, and fulfilling customer orders and it can be divided into three categories of purchases, manufacturing, and sales.

If you sell products in an online store, the purchase order management process begins when the customer orders a product and pays for their virtual shopping cart list.

If you make products, the manufacturing order process starts from BOM (bill of materials) and verifying the raw materials needed for the manufacturing. Then you make the product if you have enough materials and ship it. If you don’t have enough materials, you need to restock and potentially delay the delivery.

Order management process is usually managed via an order management system (OMS). Learn how to choose the most suitable order management system.
