Let's assume that apart from IdoSell online shop selling cosmetics, you conduct sales in a medium-sized brick-and-mortar store in which you averagely sell 300-400 products a day. Let's also assume that you sell about 50 products daily in your online shop. Of course you would like to avoid the situation when, by mistake, in a brick-and-mortar store you sell a product which has already been ordered in your online store. You also wouldn't like to face a problem when your online store offers products which have already been sold out in a brick-and-mortar store. If both types of your stores are not integrated or are managed by one system, you have to manually synchronize stock levels of both shops. In case of a traditional sale which involves selling about 300-400 products and an online shop selling about 50 items, you will probably need to hire an employee who can focus only on synchronizing the levels. Remember that filling another job position in your company will cost you around £2063 net monthly.
