  • Integration of Zoho Inventory and Zoho Connect
  • Zoho Inventory provides its users with three ways through which they can integrate their inventory system with other apps. These are:

    • Data Feeds
    • Web services
    • APIs

    Data feeds are basically files that contain details about the products in the inventory system. These files are stored in an XML format and can be easily integrated with other apps. Through this method, users are able to export their products to other apps without having access to the inventory system. This method also allows users to import reports from other apps into their inventory system without any additional coding. This is done through the use of web services. These web services are encoded scripts that are linked with other apps. They allow users to exchange data between their inventory system and other apps in real time. Finally, there are two APIs that are used to integrate Zoho Inventory with other apps. one for importing products into Zoho Inventory and one for exporting products out of Zoho Inventory. Through these APIs, users are able to keep their inventory updated with information regarding orders placed in other apps. A detailed explanation of each of these methods is provided below:

  • Data Feeds
  • Data Feeds are XML files submitted by users in order to integrate their inventory system with other apps. These files are sent when orders are placed in other apps. These orders are then imported into Zoho Inventory and displayed on users’ dashboards. When orders and invoices are created and paid in other apps, they can be exported from these apps and imported into Zoho Invoice Pro or Zoho Books via data feeds. After this step is completed, users will be able to view these invoices in their respective invoice management apps. Data feeds can also be used to export purchase orders from other apps and import them into Zoho CRM or Zoho Desk. Zoho CRM will then automatically add these purchase orders to its CRM module and assign them corresponding sales orders. Additionally, data feeds can also be used to export sales orders from other apps and import them into Zoho CRM and Zoho Desk where they can be tracked and monitored by sales team members. Another use of data feeds is that they can be used to export items from other apps and import them into Zoho Inventory. This way, inventory team members will be able to add these items into their inventory system without having access to other apps such as Magento or Shopify. They will also be able to add other details such as stock availability and price for each product that is imported into their inventory system through data feeds. Users can create their own data feeds or download sample data feeds from https://www.zoho.com/docs/dataset-files.html. This website has a variety of sample datasets available for different types of business models such as apparel stores, grocery stores, supermarkets, etc. Users can choose a sample dataset from this website and use it for integrating their inventory system with other apps.
