If eCommerce was a marathon race, then the integrations are the running shoes that protect your feet and keep you as comfortable as possible through the race. Now, it’s not necessary that you need a pair of running shoes to win a marathon, but it definitely helps, to say the least.
Much like the running shoes, the integrations make the journey easier not just for the user but for the administrator as well. With integrations, your business becomes easy to manage by automating time-consuming processes like tax returns, payments, inventory management, logistics, and even social media management.
Streamlining and Enhance Your Website With eCommerce Integration
Integrations also play an important role when it comes to providing superior functionality and a friction-free user experience. Integrations make it possible for users to apply multiple filters to find the product they are looking for, autosave payment details for easier checkout, and a lot more. Integrations further enable the admin to manage and control their eCommerce store from the back end making business easier and faster.
Software as a Service (SaaS) Integrations
Distributed Data Integration
SaaS or Software as a Service is nothing short of a blessing for eCommerce store owners. SaaS makes use of cloud-based service. It is usually subscription-based and centrally hosted. SaaS software, like CRM, ERP, SAP, and others, does more than just make your work life easier. It empowers you as an Admin and gives you superior control over the eCommerce store.
CRM or Customer Relationship Management does exactly what its name suggests. It manages your company's relationship with customers and potential customers. ERP or Enterprise Resource Planning helps to keep track of parts for manufacturers and distributors. Similarly, there are many SaaS software out there that can optimize the functioning of your eCommerce store regardless of your business vertical (B2B/B2C/D2C).
Most of the SaaS software can be employed in your eCommerce store by integrating their dedicated plug-in or extensions. You can also find the most popular and reliable SaaS solutions depending on your requirement and nature of business. For example, HubSpot is one of the leading CRM software that you can employ for your business.
SaaS software usually employs API or Application Programming Interface, as the medium through which the software components interact. Almost all of the major SaaS software use API. Virtina, being a software engineering company at its core, can both create and consume APIs. Our in-depth knowledge and years of experience working with APIs enable us to deliver any requirements you may have.
However, that does not mean we are limited to integrations using APIs alone. Our experts employ FTP, CST, and Scrapers for data collection. If that’s not enough, our expert team will customize the popular plug-ins to fulfill the needs of your unique business. We often had clients approaching us seeking help to implement integrations on their eCommerce store set up on a platform that does not support a particular plugin they need.Virtina has carried out countless successful custom integrations which enabled our clients to accommodate payment gateways, zip verification, device activation, handle abandoned carts, and more. In other words, no matter what your integration requirements may be, the team of experts at Virtina will exceed your expectations every time.
The data integration is quintessential to ensure that your users have a fulfilling and informative user experience. To establish this, your eCommerce needs data integration to give its users easy access to product information. As the Admin, you also need to have complete control and flexibility over what data needs to be displayed to the users.
Some of the major aspects of distributed data integration include the following.
- Product Catalog
By providing comprehensive and reliable information to the users, you are enabling them to make well-informed buying decisions. The importance of having fully-functional inventory management in eCommerce should never be underestimated. Your customer should never have to guess whether or not an item is in stock.
Aside from this, Virtina’s eCommerce integration service ensures that inventory management is no longer a lengthy complicated process. With automated inventory management, you get to spend more time focusing on running your business instead of worrying about managing inventory.

For an eCommerce business, the importance of product catalog and description could be a deciding factor for conversion. With over 950 eCommerce projects successfully completed, Virtina carries out catalog integration that appeals to your target audience and reduces friction elements for enhanced user experience.Furthermore, Virtina can optimize your order flow.
