Brightpearl provides a retail operating system (ROS) for retailers and wholesalers. Its mission is clear: automate the back office so merchants can spend their time and money growing the business. Brightpearl's ROS includes financial management, inventory and sales order management, purchasing and supplier management, CRM, fulfillment, warehouse and logistics. Brightpearl is built to reliably handle peak trading, integrates with the full retail tech ecosystem, is omnichannel-native, is the system of record for key trading data, provides real-time trading insights and is automated so you can stay in control and manage by exception.
Brightpearl's world class BigCommerce connector is built to manage high orders volumes and manage the complexities of a growing retail or wholesale business. The efficiencies driven by Brightpearl allow our merchants to increase revenue by 60%, order volume by 68% and reduce shipping times by 13% on average year on year.
Flexible Order Routing and Fulfillment
Brightpearl has an advanced fulfillment module that provides flexibility in how orders are fulfilled. BigCommerce doesn't need to worry if an order is shipped via a 3pl, drop-shipment or on backorder. Brightpearl handles all of the logic to orchestrate the shipment of that item to a customer. Automation allows users to build these fulfillment rules directly into Brightpearl. A drop-ship process that might have taken hours between BigCommerce and Quickbooks can be done in seconds using Brightpearl.
Multi-Location Inventory Management
Within the BigCommerce connector a merchant can select exactly which of their warehouse(s) should be considered for their product availability levels per webstore, meaning that the business is maximizing their sales potential. When the orders are created, Brightpearl's fulfilment and automation workflows will route it to the optimal fulfilment location as per the business' preference.
With separate systems for sales, purchasing, inventory management, and accounting, the same data is input multiple times introducing increased risk of errors at each stage. Brightpearl creates journals automatically when you invoice sales, take payments, receive or ship stock, and just about anything else, so all data entry is automated, evolving the accounting team to a management by exception environment rather than a data entry one.
As such, every report is available in real-time, resulting in an up to date to the second view on their business that required no work outside the system or compiling multiple data sources.
For a client operating multiple BigCommerce webstores, marketplaces like Amazon or through EDI, they would simply connect each channel individually to Brightpearl. Brightpearl will then keep them all in sync, alongside any other sales channels, automatically and in real-time. Brightpearl will then consolidate all activity, enabling the merchant with a centralized place to manage orders and inventory, and holistic reporting.
