• Integral Group can integrate Shopify with your other business applications •
Some people think that Integral Group is just for their EDI and that they need an entirely different provider to deal with the API’s in their online stores: Not true. The simple truth is that Integral Group can integrate your Shopify store with your other business applications. Once integrated, you can see your Shopify store sales – in exactly the same way, and on the same Commerce Desktop web portal, that you are currently using for EDI.
Once you have Commerce Desktop integrating Shopify with your back-end accounting, ERP, WMS and shipping system(s) - you’ve enabled the flow of information – in very near real time – between all of the systems. This is obviously good from a business perspective – overall faster with fewer staff required to manage data and manual errors are minimized.
Integration makes your operation easily scalable – it works well when you are when you have a smaller number of orders but also manages volume fluctuations when your online store is inundated with orders (think Black Friday) – without extra staff needed to process orders.
Shopify ⇄ Commerce Desktop ⇆ WMS integration also serves to provide the immediate updates – like near real-time inventory and order tracking back into shopping carts - that online shoppers now demand.
• One service provider = easier process + more control + better customer experience •
In a nutshell, all of the same great features you already enjoy with Commerce Desktop are available to you when you integrate your Shopify online store.
EDI and integration - and the automation that comes with them - has helped to make ALCA Distribution more efficient and productive.

Do you need to integrate your order management data?
Maybe not. Or ...

All good business leaders carefully assess the needs of their business on an ongoing basis. Your organization may not yet be ready for integration and maybe this post is just a reminder of what integration can do for you when the time is right.
