The integration of the Unleashed Inventory Management system (Unleashed.com) with a Visualsoft store, using the TIDEConnects cloud subscription service.
Released: 14/06/2021Contact Us
This feature is the integration of the Unleashed Inventory Management system (Unleashed.com) with a Visualsoft store, using the TIDEConnects cloud subscription service.
The integration supports the automation for a number of business processes:
\- Product Management
\- Inventory Synchronisation
\- Sales Order Processing
Product Management assumes that Unleashed is the master for all products. When new products are added to Unleashed, a draft product is created in Visualsoft. Data transferred includes Product Sku, Product Name, Product Description, Product Price, Product Cost, plus any Images stored in Unleashed. TIDE provides full support for product variations like size and colour. Once the draft is in Visualsoft, then the full array of Visualsoft tools can be used to add descriptive information and SEO to the products before they are published.
When an existing product is updated in Unleashed, the product in Visualsoft is updated with all changes. Options are available to ensure that images and descriptions in Visualsoft are not overwritten.
Unleashed is queried every 5 minutes and any new or changed products are transferred to Visualsoft.
Unleashed is queried every 5 minutes and products where stock levels have changed will be synchronised between Unleashed and Visualsoft. Whenever stock changes in Unleashed, i.e. a sale is made Unleashed or a sale is made online or new stock is received, the resulting Unleashed stock level is transferred to Visualsoft for any product that has changed.
\*\*Sales Order Processing\*\*
TIDE queries Visualsoft every five minutes to pick up any new sales orders. If new orders are found, TIDE extracts details about the products and quantities purchased, prices paid, payment method, shipment charges, taxes paid and customer details and creates an order in Vend. The sales are typically written to a corresponding customer account in Unleashed, with a prepended Order number so that online sales can be separately reported. Stock levels are updated for products sold and a new customer record is created if it doesn’t already exist, using Customer email as the key.
If any additional functionality is required other than as described, please let TIDE know prior to production as this may incur additional development costs. Please also note that to enable this feature, you will require a subscription to TIDEConnects as well as a Sunbscription for Unleashed and are responsible for all associated costs.
