Press Release: fusefabric launches first Shopify App integration with Descartes Peoplevox WMS

May 2022

The first and only Shopify App to enable Shopify merchants to instantly integrate with Descartes Peoplevox warehouse management system (WMS) – one-click integration between Shopify and Descartes Peoplevox WMS.

Merchants integrating Shopify to PVX today typically have to find an integration partner, book resources and run a project to connect the two systems. Apart from the costs these projects introduce time delays, complexity and risk to bringing these two systems together.

WMS connect was born out of the desire to standardise the process of connecting these systems working with experts of both sides to ensure that the majority of common use cases are designed and catered for. Now with the one-click install and configuration screens the merchant can be up and running in hours not weeks and months.

No more time consuming and expensive integration projects to connect your Shopify Store and Peoplevox Warehouse Management System – fusefabric’s WMS Connect App can be quickly and easily installed by merchants on their Shopify store to enjoy instant no-code integration between Shopify and Descartes Peoplevox WMS.

With the launch of WMS Connect, merchants can now enable instant integration of product and price information, sales orders, despatches, inventory and returns between Shopify and Peoplevox. WMS Connect has a rich set of configurations enabling the merchant to configure their Shopify WMS integration themselves without involving a separate 3rd party integration provider which typically adds more cost and time to their warehouse management implementation project.

Warehouse management implementations are already complex and time consuming and typically require separate specialist provider to integrate the systems together. Merchants are often looking for ways to speed up and reduce costs of their WMS implementation project and allow them to control the WMS integration themselves without being reliant on an integration company – WMS Connect solve all these problems. 

After installing WMS Connect from the Shopify App Store, merchants are provided with their very own secure cloud-based environment dedicated to them meaning merchants won’t suffer from surges in volumes from other ‘noisy neighbour’ customers. In addition, their dedicated environment will scale in the cloud to absorb their own increases in trading activities.

The WMS Connect App allows merchants to configure their warehouse management integration configuration through drop down menus and settings from within their Shopify store allowing them to select which integrations they want to connect, and how they want the integrations to work.

The integrations available between the merchant’s Shopify store and Peoplevox WMS include syncing of new and updated products, allowing merchants to see the details of the SKU they are picking or despatching within the Peoplevox WMS. 

Orders are synced real time between Shopify and Peoplevox, merchants can define carrier allocation rules along with rules for automatically removing gift cards and other SKUs they might not want to send to the WMS. As returns are processed in Peoplevox, the appropriate refund is triggered in Shopify.

When an order is despatched in Peoplevox, the despatch details along with tracking information is updated in the merchant’s Shopify store. The merchant can control key business rules such as whether they allow for multi shipments or not and if there are SKUs that need to be automatically fulfilled e.g. gift receipts. In addition, WMS Connect can handle both of Shopify Payment’s methodologies: capture payment at checkout and capture payment on fulfilment – ensuring the right payment is captured at the right time.

Inventory/Stock positions are kept up to date in Shopify as inventory are added, restocked, and picked in the Peoplevox WMS. The consistent data-syncing allows merchants to sell products immediately as they add them into stock and cut out overselling and underselling.

“After implementing many Shopify integrations, we realised that merchants wanted a faster and less expensive option for integrating their Shopify store with their warehouse management system and that’s exactly why we developed WMS Connect for this need.” said Simon Hamblin, co-founder of fusefabric.

“In the fast-paced industry of e-commerce and with trading conditions becoming tougher than ever, merchants want to spend more time focusing on their customers and business and less time and expense implementing system integrations. Our WMS Connect App solves this by being available to all Shopify and Descartes Peoplevox customers through the Shopify App store and being an instant and affordable solution but also giving the merchant the greatest degree of flexibility to ensure it meets their business process requirements when integrating their Shopify store and their Descartes Peoplevox WMS”.
