Inventory

Windward E-Commerce software integrates with Windward System Five to ensure that the information that is displayed on your website is current and accurate.

 

Dynamically Generated Stock Management Pages

One of the key aspects of Windward Ecommerce inventory management is its ability to display items in a dynamically generated format. This means that the content of web pages is based on the information that has been uploaded to the Windward E-Commerce system from the Windward System Five records. By using dynamically generated web pages your website will be in sync with your System Five records, reducing errors and improving accuracy. In addition, because website pages are dynamically generated, there is little need for you to make manual changes on your website for inventory items.

Windward Ecommerce Stock Control

Syncing your Windward System with your Online Store

One of the key aspects of Windward E-Commerce is its ability to display items in a dynamically generated format. This means that the content of web pages is based on the information that has been uploaded to the Windward E-Commerce system from the Windward System Five records.

For example, if a website visitor views a list of items, the visitor is seeing the information that was most recently uploaded from System Five. The next time a visitor goes to the same page it may contain different items or items with changed information – that is if that information changed in System Five and has been uploaded to the website.

By using dynamically generated web pages your website will be in sync with your System Five records. This is beneficial to you as it helps in reducing errors and improving accuracy. In addition, because website pages are dynamically generated, there is little need for you to make manual changes on your website for items.

Simplified Example...

To illustrate how dynamically generated web pages work lets look at a simplified example.

On May 25th at 1:00 pm a visitor to a website selected jackets and was shown the following web page stock listings:

ecommerce ecommerce inventory stock management items online control monitor update internet marketing pos shopping ecart sell buy catalogue managing content systems CMS

On May 25th at 1:10 pm the rain coat vendor contacts the retailer and advises them that this rain coat is in fact water resistant and not waterproof – as well the hood is not detachable. A clerk makes the change to the stock item in System Five and then uploads the change to Windward E-Commerce. Although it could be left for the automatic upload that will take place later in the day, it was determined that the change was significant and had to be made immediately. On May 25th at 1:30 pm the next visitor to the jackets page sees:

Windward E-Commerce automatically displays uploaded changes to an item – without you having to make a change on the website, saving you time and ensuring the accuracy of your website.
