Do you ever wonder how you can expand your business and make more sales, without working more hours?
In this article, Joseph Anderson, Founder of Sync with Connex, shares his insights to help e-commerce business owners scale their businesses.
Back in 2009, Joseph worked for a software company where an intern manually entered 100 orders into QuickBooks every day. Joseph realized that the company wouldn’t be able to grow if they relied on manual data entry, and wondered how the process of entering data into QuickBooks could be automated.
“The company made software that helped move data in and out of databases, surely there must be a way,” Joseph thought.
In 2010, Joseph started his own company and automated data transfer between e-commerce platforms and QuickBooks Online and Desktop. Besides automating data entry into QuickBooks, Connex also helps ecommerce stores manage online inventories, map sales taxes, and match deposits into bank accounts.
Overall, Sync with Connex integrates QuickBooks Online and Desktop with over 30 different ecommerce platforms, shipping solutions, and payment processors.
According to Joseph, “What makes Sync with Connex unique is that our software was developed specifically for e-commerce business owners who are looking to grow their business.”
Sync with Connex simplifies the process of expanding your e-commerce store to multiple selling channels.
One of Connex’s customers, Soap and Paper, started in the basement of their founder Lisa. After success at local farmer’s markets, Lisa partnered with Shannon to expand to online sales, wholesale, and Amazon.
Soap and Paper needed to outsource in order to continue expanding. Outsourcing comes with managing many moving parts, from filling orders, to shipping, and managing inventory. Lisa and her staff had to manually enter data into QuickBooks and the process was tedious and time-consuming.
Soap and Paper Factory had a diverse set of needs; they wanted to both import orders to their shipping solution, while syncing a spreadsheet.
Sync with Connex helped Soap and Factory to bridge the gaps between their online stores, shipping solutions, and outsourced locations so they could expand their business.
In the words of co-founder Shannon: “Connex has totally changed our world.”
Soap and Paper is just one of the thousands of small businesses that have been able to grow using Sync with Connex. What all of these business owners have in common is that they realized that automation was the key to scaling sustainably.
“As a business owner, your time is very valuable, so we want to help you automate as many things as possible,” Joseph says.
Some businesses are relatively small (a few thousand orders a year) when they sign up for Sync with Connex. Having automated data entry in place at the very beginning helps them to streamline their workflow and start expanding because they are not wasting time correcting errors or manually entering data into QB.
As your order volume grows and you expand to new selling channels, Connex’s advanced features can simplify your workflow.
Specifically, Connex’s summary sales sync, two-way inventory sync, and Rules Engine help you to keep QuickBooks up-to-date and manage your inventory on multiple selling channels.
“As the business owner you need to focus on high-level decisions and delegate as much as possible. Our tool replaces multiple apps so you can simplify things.”
Sync with Connex prides itself on helping you “have one less thing to worry about.” By automating data entry into QuickBooks and keeping up with QuickBooks upgrades, Sync with Connex helps you keep QiickBooks up-to-date.
“No one should type several hundred orders into QuickBooks,” Joseph says. “Business owners should focus on what they do best, which is selling their products and services.”
As a business owner you should focus on what you do best: selling your products and growing your business.
