When iBead.com wanted to streamline their online processes, they turned to an integrated solution from StoreFront. Using Microsoft’s RMS Data Integrator, iBead.com can now automatically download order information from their StoreFront database, as well as populating customer data, transaction items, shipping charges, and payment information in the RMS system. Before implementing the integration iBead.com received orders, printed them out and then one of their employees would manually input those orders into their RMS system. This would often take several hours. However, with the new integration they now print orders directly out of RMS. This process has resulted in a drastic improvement in efficiency.
