Running your retail business and an online store on disparate systems is a difficult task and extremely inefficient managing data separately and it is also prone to errors. 

Due to incomplete and inaccurate information, goods can be sold online even when they are out of stock resulting in the cancellation of web orders by disappointed on-line customers.

Aralco Retail Systems closes this gap with its capability to integrate your E-commerce website with its main retail database so that products and inventory are centrally managed in one database, and communicated to the E-commerce website every few minutes.

 

 

 

CONTENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS (CMS) & E-COMMERCE PLATFORMS

Our project team is able to work on your existing E-commerce website to build the bridging to Aralco. For clients who want a new website, we can design and build a functional website in accordance with your corporate requirements. 

Aralco Retail Systems' API for E-commerce can be integrated with any CMS/E-commerce platforms such as Wordpress. Joomla, Magento, Shopify, Woocommerce, Open cart, etc.

 

MANAGE PRODUCTS & INVENTORY IN ONE PLACE

With E-commerce integration, all information on products, stock status, brands, categories, promotions are synced from Aralco's central database. Simply check the "E-commerce" box on each product designated for listing on the website, and uncheck it to remove any product from the website or online store.

 

Information of products synchronized are:

 

  • Product Name 
  • Additional Product Description - long names with 4000 characters that can be used for product specification or any other purposes
  • Product Categories
  • Product images
  • SEO Description and Keywords
  • Product Prices
  • Promotion Prices
  • Product web status for Promotion, New Arrivals, etc
  • Packagings' weight and dimension for freight calculation during checkout when applicable
  • Stock On Hand level 
  • and any customized outputs

 

 

 

ONLINE ORDERS

Orders submitted or paid on the E-commerce are instantly synchronized in real-time to the Aralco Retail Systems' central Database Server for simplified and seamless order fulfillment in the back office.

Whenever required,  the E-commerce server can be "programmed" to synchronize each online order in real-time to a third-party logistics provider (3PL) for SKU pickup by location and sorting before they make delivery to customers.

 

LOYALTY REWARD PROGRAM

Online checkout and in-store POS are configured for issuance or redemption of loyalty points hence latest points status from Aralco is communicated in real-time to the E-commerce website.

Customers are able to login to the E-commerce website with their account credentials anytime to see their loyalty reward points status.

 

 

UNIFIED COMMERCE - RETAIL STORE & E-COMMERCE

Your customers can shop anywhere seamlessly with unified commerce in place - online customers can visit any physical stores for goods exchanges, make further purchases using the same account number.

With one central database on a single platform, unified commerce increases your productivity, gives you full visibility of the whole business and consolidates real-time data on everything for you -

Interface to Third Party's Ecommerce

 

This option is offered by Aralco through our Universal Data Interchange (UDI). With this solution, clients can utilize third party shopping cart applications and have their developers interface with Aralco's UDI data base.

When you create a product in the Aralco back office system, the information is written into the UDI database which can reside on the same server or external to the brick and mortar database.

Web Orders are also automatically imported from UDI into the main database for viewing and shipping through the Aralco POS. The information in the UDI database can be limited to what the ecommerce site requires such as product information, web-orders, web customers etc.
