Inventory Integration Solution for Better Accounting SystemsRequest a Quote
Ecommerce accounting can be complicated due to the fact that ecommerce inventory levels are constantly moving. For growing ecommerce businesses, manually keeping track of inventory, rather than implementing an inventory accounting system, can be time-consuming and stressful, especially during tax season.
To optimise workflows and improve accounting accuracy, it’s important to find a way to streamline and automate your inventory accounting operations, which can be achieved by integrating your inventory and accounting systems.
What is inventory integration?
Inventory integration refers to the process of optimising and streamline an inventory management system with accounting software, as well as other solutions that power your ecommerce tech stack, such as order fulfilment.
Accurate inventory and accounting systems
Integrating your accounting and inventory management systems is a strategic move that can dramatically optimise your ecommerce supply chain. Through integrations, your company can match the specifics of financial reports with items that are physically in your inventory.

By using ShipBob’s inventory management system, you can track fulfilment performance and shipping insights to get insights on what parts of the supply chain need to be optimised or improved.
3. Instant and reliable financial reports
ShipBob understands that all companies need to balance out their inventory with accounting and that’s why using an integrated inventory system makes this process easier with fewer delays and inaccuracies. With ShipBob’s advanced data and analytics tool, business owners can gain insight into key figures such as shipping expenditure, profitability by order, and how much the average consumer spends on your store.
