Whether its eCommerce, omni-channel integration, marketing, retail or customer interaction you’re interested in, Dx3 provides insight from successful businesses about these and other topics.

This year Blue Link is proud to support Dx3 along with several of our integration partners. Visit us at Booth #316 where we will be speaking to attendees about an often overlooked and certainly less glamorous aspect of eCommerce - back-end inventory and accounting ERP software. In today’s world, many non-traditional retail operations such as wholesale and distribution businesses, are beginning to sell through multiple sales channels in order to reach more customers. For example, many distributors also cater to walk-in customers, provide showrooms open to the public and sell through online channels both B2B and B2C. eCommerce provides the opportunity for any type of business to sell product online, 24/7, 365. However, eCommerce is just one piece of the puzzle – in order to be successful online, consideration must be made for back-end business management and proper integration. There is no advantage to selling online if you do not have the processes and systems in place to then process those orders, pick, pack and ship items from your warehouse, invoice your customers and receive new inventory to replenish what has been sold. For many eCommerce businesses, proper inventory and accounting management can be the difference between your company succeeding and failing. In such a saturated market, consumers will not easily forgive those eCommerce sites who sell inventory they don’t have, lose orders during shipment and are slow to respond to customer service issues.
Dx3 is a great place to interact with businesses from all parts of the supply chain. eCommerce agencies and platforms such as Demac Media and Shopify are attending the show to share their insight on how to successfully sell product online and remain competitive. Virtual Logistics is onsite as an omni-channel data integration service provider to discuss proper integration between multiple systems and channels, including eCommerce and back-end software. Blue Link is onsite to discuss the importance of having back-end systems in place to manage online sales and to successfully ship product to customers, and Canada Post is onsite in order to answer all your shipping questions.
