If you’re having flashbacks to high school algebra, there is no need to be concerned. Nexternal has the teacher’s text book with all the answers: Fulfillment By Amazon leveraging  Nexternal plus TrueCommerce combined with your Enterprise Resource Planning system equals No Big Deal. In other words, we make it easier than ever to ensure that your Amazon orders flow seamlessly to Nexternal and merge with your ERP of choice through the TrueCommerce connector, even those that are fulfilled by Amazon.

While we have had an intuitive and efficient integration with Amazon for years, until recently merchant fulfilled orders were the area of focus. Now that FBA orders are supported in the integration, the end result is that your Nexternal Order Management system can act as a centralized database for both traditional web sales through your own online store as well as a catch-all for both types of Amazon orders.

So what is this TC part all about? TrueCommerce, another HighJump division that specializes in data migration to ERP’s (as well as trading partner EDI), has a direct tie in to the Nexternal Order Management System. The outcome is that any order in your Nexternal back-end  can be automatically pushed to your ERP, such as Sage, Dynamics, QuickBooks, Oracle, or SAP to name a few. Those orders of course include ones than flow into Nexternal from Amazon, namely of the FBA variety.

In all, running exports from your eCommerce system, which may or may not include your Amazon orders (or possibly only some of them) and then importing those files to your ERP is a thing of the past (just like your long forgotten algebra skills). For existing clients who would like more information on the Nexternal/Amazon integration or the powerful TrueCommerce connector, please contact your account rep. Now who’s ready to revisit chemistry?!
