ODS Launches Multichannel e-commerce Platform with ChannelUnity

ChannelUnity, the e-commerce and marketplace specialists, and On Demand Solutions, the ERP and B2B e-commerce specialists, have announced a ground breaking partnership, which is already winning new business.

This new multichannel e-commerce partnership enables businesses, with just a few clicks, to publish their entire product ranges on more than 30 global marketplaces, including Amazon and Ebay – all directly from their back office system.

Selling direct through an e-commerce site and online marketplaces from a back office system used to involve costly custom integrations. Today’s announcement offers brick-and-mortar stores all the necessary functionality required to sell their products on web stores and in global marketplaces, reducing product management and data entry overhead to an absolute minimum via complete integration with your ERP system.

Any company using Sage 200/1000 or SAP Business One as a back office system can use this new capability.

David Bristow, Director of On Demand Solutions said, ‘The new connector gives businesses the ability to manage and streamline the whole process of selling their products just about anywhere online, and then manage order fulfilment through their supply chain.

Our end to end integrated solution, ODSNet, automatically synchronizes inventory across all marketplaces and physical locations, increasing customer satisfaction, reduced management costs and delivering better operational efficiency and higher profit margins to the merchant’.

Matt Gardiner, Chief Executive at ChannelUnity, said ‘The number of global end customers who are choosing to buy via marketplaces like eBay and Amazon is continuing to grow at unprecedented pace and it’s more important than ever for retailers to focus on achieving an integrated multichannel e-commerce platform. We are delighted to have been able to create a best of breed solution for organisations using Sage or SAP through our partnership with ODS.’

In fact, the partnership is already bearing fruit, as automotive parts and number plate supplier Sandhurst Autoprint Group have just selected On Demand Solutions as their e-commerce partner for five branded sites, across both B2B and B2C, which will include the new Marketplace Connector.

Sandhurst CEO Tim Sanders explained ‘We chose ODS because they took the time to understand our requirements, the supply chain experience of their team and not least their flexible, up to date e-commerce software that can support our multi-brand organisation.’
