Inventory Management for X-Cart
Both SkuVault and X-Cart’s user interfaces were designed to be as simple, intuitive, and to-the-point as possible. X-Cart allows you to sell your inventory online. SkuVault allows you to track the activity of the inventory in your warehouse. By utilizing both SkuVault and X-Cart, you gain total control of your inventory, as well as your online marketplace, all from the palm of your hand. When an item is sold from your online X-Cart store, then your SkuVault automatically updates your quantities in both your warehouse and online store. SkuVault utilizes barcodes in order to achieve this. Every item has a different barcode. These barcodes allow you to locate, track, pick, and ship all items with ease. SkuVault is compatible with X-Cart 4, and can pull orders and push quantities as is typical of our integrations. SkuVault is also compatible with X-Cart 5, and that integration is a bit more robust. X-Cart 5 pulls products from SkuVault, and in so doing can either create a listing on X-Cart (if the product does not already exist in X-Cart) or can update a listing on X-Cart (if the product does already exist in X-Cart, but the information has since been updated in SkuVault). The X-Cart 5 integration also pulls orders & pushes updated available quantities, as is the manner the X-Cart 4 integration operates.
Quantity syncing between SkuVault and X-Cart
Any time an available quantity is changed, that quantity is automatically updated on your X-Cart site to prevent oversells and undersells. This quantity syncing between our inventory management solution and X-Cart is one of our favorite features, because out of stocks can be so dangerous for your eCommerce business. SkuVault does not just update your inventory whenever a sale occurs. Several things can happen to affect the available quantity and prompt an update: returns, employee sales, wholesale orders, and the dreaded physical counts are a few reasons your inventory could change not due to online orders. This available quantity is what we update to X-Cart and any other channels you have that we integrate with such as Amazon, etc.
Why we love X-Cart
We at SkuVault love X-Cart because they make it possible for anyone to have a clean and beautifully designed web store. They are putting the power of eCommerce into the hands of everyone. While X-Cart has made creating a web store easy, SkuVault has made keeping track of the inventory in your web store easy. SkuVault and X-Cart work together to make the daunting tasks of web store maintenance and inventory management a little simpler. This allows you, the seller, to focus your efforts on other important areas of business: marketing, sales, customer relations, and the overall growth of your company.
