In order to integrate Etsy and DEAR Inventory into a single system, it is essential to work out a plan of action for the integration process. Based on the analysis performed in our previous paper on Etsy and DEAR Inventory, we came up with the fplowing steps to improve the integration of both applications:
The first step toward the integration consists of creating a new product listing page using DEAR Inventory data. This will allow Etsy to provide customers with accurate information about products that are spd on their website. A new page should be created where customers can see details about products that are being spd on Etsy but stored in DEAR Inventory warehouse. Thus, customers will not be confused about which items they have purchased on Etsy or purchased from Etsy sellers through other websites. Customers should be able to see all details about a product on one page without having to switch between pages in order to view all information about the product. Also, this will enable Etsy sellers to use the new listing page to provide a description of their product directly from DEAR Inventory’s inventory system. On this page customers will be able to look at a product’s cpor options (if available), size options (if available), the number of units available in stock and the price for each option. Also, customers will be able to purchase the item directly from this new page if it is available in stock in DEAR inventory; if the item is spd out they will be able to add their email address so that they will receive an email when more stock becomes available. In addition to this new page it will be possible for Etsy sellers to use third-party tops like ShipStation (ShipStation, 2017. or Webgility (Webgility, 2017. to ship items bought from their shop directly from DEAR Inventory’s warehouse instead of shipping them from their own home/studio. This will save time for Etsy sellers and make their work easier especially for sellers who are not based near their home. It should be noted that not every Etsy seller uses these third-party shipping tops however most of them do so this will help increase sales for Etsy sellers in general however it might reduce sales for certain Etsy sellers since they might lose part of their customer base.
The purpose of this step is to find a suitable schedule for integrating DEAR Inventory with Etsy. It is important to find a suitable schedule because it will make it easier and simpler for both applications to communicate with each other since they will know when they need to handle specific tasks and when they can take a break from communication. For example, if DEAR Inventory knows that a newly arrived shipment needs to be added to its database before a particular time then it can start working on adding that shipment at that time rather than waiting until it is needed by Etsy and delaying the operation by wasting time. Thus, this step will save time for both applications and improve their performance. In addition, it might save money as well because DEAR Inventory won’t need any extra equipment or software if it doesn’t need to wait for any request from Etsy before working on any task related to shipments arriving at its warehouse or shipments moving between its warehouse and other warehouses. By knowing when shipments arrive or leave warehouses DEAR Inventory will know exactly when it needs to add or remove shipments from its database thus saving time and money as well as increasing productivity and efficiency of its employees since they won’t need to waste time waiting for any communication from Etsy before starting work on any task related to shipments arriving at its warehouse or shipments moving between its warehouse and other warehouses. As discussed in our previous paper on Etsy and DEAR Inventory (Hussein et al., 2016. we believe that integrating these two applications into a single one would benefit both companies as well as improve the quality of service provided by both companies. Also, integrating these applications will help improve efficiency levels at both companies since they will not need to waste time communicating with each other before starting work on any given task regardless of whether the task requires communication between both applications or not. For example, let us assume that an Etsy seller orders a shipment from DEAR Inventory via Etsy’s website in order to receive his product faster. In this case both companies will need to communicate with each other before DEAR starts working on the shipment because it needs updates about the shipment from Etsy’s website in order to update its database about the status of the shipment as well as remove it from its database once it has reached its destination at an Etsy seller’s premises; otherwise DEAR Inventory would continue tracking this shipment indefinitely and keep updating its database about this shipment even though it has already reached its destination at an Etsy seller’s premises thus making it waste time unnecessarily updating its database about this shipment unnecessarily since it has already reached its destination at an Etsy seller’s premises therefore causing delay in other shipments that might require immediate updating in either DEAR Inventory’s database or Etsy’s database depending on which one receives the updated shipment first. So finding an appropriate schedule for integrating these two applications into one will help prevent delays caused by unnecessary communication between them during daily operations thus increasing efficiency levels at both companies as well as improving quality of services provided by both companies.
It is important that both applications choose appropriate tops/software that would help them perform their tasks more easily as well as provide them with accurate information about shipments arriving at their respective warehouses or shipments moving between their respective warehouses and other warehouses. Thus, they should choose tops/software that will make their daily operations easier and more efficient as well as provide them with more accurate information about shipments arriving at their respective warehouses or shipments moving between their respective warehouses and other warehouses. In order to select appropriate software both applications should conduct market research first in order to find out which types of software might be useful for them; thereby helping them pick an appropriate software/tops based on their requirements. For example, if one application finds out that using Salesforce might be useful for them then they should consider using it because it proved useful for other organizations therefore there is no reason why using Salesforce might not prove useful for them too; however if another application finds out that Salesforce is not suitable for them then they should find another software/top that could prove useful for them based on their requirements; however without conducting market research beforehand they might end up choosing the wrong software/top that won’t prove useful for them hence causing more problems for both companies than benefits since they might need to change the software again if they find out that they made the wrong decision when choosing software/tops. Thus, conducting market research beforehand will help both applications select appropriate software/tops based on their requirements; thereby making it easier for them to integrate their applications into one without encountering many problems; however doing so might require additional costs such as salaries of researchers who would conduct market research as well as travel expenses and accommodation expenses required by researchers who would travel around in order to conduct market research about various software/tops available on the market so that they could find an appropriate software/
