Ecommerce

Managing retail business and online store on two separate systems is an extremely difficult task, inefficient with zero visibility on current inventory status. 

As a result, goods are sold online with insufficient stock at hand or is it always spending too much time hunting for physical inventory during picking? This causes cancellation of web orders and late fulfillments to your customers.

Aralco Retail Management Systems closes this gap with its capability to integrate your CMS/E-commerce where both shares the main Aralco's main retail database - synchronizing product data, gift card status, inventory on-hand status, customers' loyalty points. 

Inventory adjustments, stock picking for order fufillment and billing are entirely managed by the Aralco Retail Management Systems.

 

CONTENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS (CMS) & E-COMMERCE PLATFORMS

Our project team is able to design and build functional website in accordance to your corporate requirements, including interfacing any hosted payment gateways of your choice for the checkout payment such as Paypal, Stripe, Wirecard, OneCash, etc.

For clients who need not replace their existing website, we are always staying on top delivering functional bridging solutions between Aralco Retail Systems' API and their existing site.

Aralco Retail Systems integrates with most popular CMS and E-commerce platforms such as Wordpress. Joomla, Magento, Shopify, Woocommerce, opencart, etc.

 

MANAGE PRODUCT IN ONE PLACE

With E-commerce integrated to Aralco Back Office Systems, simply check "E-commerce" box on each product designated for listing on the website, and similarly you can uncheck it to remove products from the online store.

There is no further need to manage the CMS separately on the web server. Information stored in Aralco's central SQL database for synchronization with the E-commerce includes:

  • Additional Product or Web Name for E-commerce
  • Additional Product Description - long names with 4000 characters that can be used for product specification or any other purposes
  • Product images
  • SEO Description and keywords
  • Product web status for Promotion, New Arrivals etc
  • Packagings' weight and dimension for freight calcualtion during checkout when applicable   

 

 

 

ONLINE ORDERS

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

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

 

INTEGRATED LOYALTY REWARD PROGRAM

Online checkout and in-store POS are configured for issuance or redemption of loyalty points and they communicate real-time with the Aralco's central server via the Internet on points status instantly and reliably.

Customers are able to login to the E-commerce site 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 -

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.
