Real-time data synchronization between Shopify and Xentral ERP

Xentral ERP automatically reconciles your orders, items and inventory with your Shopify store. This gives you access to live data such as sales figures, inventory and shipping status at any time. You can also create any of your items from within Xentral. In Xentral, you then maintain all item data such as descriptions, prices and so on. This is especially useful if you have a multichannel strategy and use additional sales channels.


Save time, maximize customer satisfaction

Xentral takes care of numerous processes in the background, so you don't have to intervene manually. This way, you reduce your administrative workload to a minimum. With Xentral, you automate your entire ordering, quotation and order management, as well as large parts of your accounting.

For example, the ERP system transfers imported orders directly to a shipping service provider. As soon as the service provider reports back tracking numbers, these are also immediately transmitted back to the Shopify store. Of course, this also happens when you ship goods directly from your warehouse via shipping companies like DHL and UPS. This way, your customers are always up to date and well informed about the status of their order.

Many companies are already using the interface and the Xentral ERP very successfully - including the food startup 3Bears. With the combination of Shopify and Xentral, large order volumes can be processed quickly and automatically. In particular, during 3Bears' appearance on the popular TV show "Die Höhle der Löwen," the company recorded thousands of orders per hour, which the Shopify online store system received and transmitted directly to Xentral. Xentral then automatically coordinated shipping.
