RICS Software and Modern Retail have an integration that allows your Shopify, Bigcommerce, WooCommerce or Magento website to synchronize data with RICS. This article gives you an overview of how this integration works and the interaction between RICS and your e-commerce website.
The following is how data flows back and forth between RICS and your website that's been built using Shopify, Bigcommerce, WooCommerce or Magento, which we will call your "e-commerce platform."
- The RICS integration starts by the creation of a "Webstore" within RICS. This is something the RICS sale and support teams do for you and must be done before any sort of integration can be done with your store.
- This Webstore in RICS looks like any other store, and just like these stores, you can apply pricing and inventory business logic to the products in this store. Want to price the product on your website differently from your other stores? No problem you can do this within your Webstore. Would you like to show inventory from Stores 1, 3, 5 and 7 online? Again, not a problem this can all be done in the Webstore.
- The RICS Webstore has many more capabilities and feature. For more information please contact RICS's Sales or Support groups.
- Modern Retail can perform some advanced data manipulation features in our Integrator. Magento customers typically need "attribute mapping" done before the data gets to Magento and this is all done with the Integrator. For example, Modern Retail has the ability to map colors so instead of 20 different colored reds being added in Magento for Red, Rose, Wine, etc. all you will see in Magento is one attribute called Red.
- Showing all in-store and online orders in RICS give you a complete view of your customer's in-store and online buying habits.
If you have any questions on how this RICS integration works, please send us a Support Request and we'd be happy to help.
