Join Patrick Rauland for an in-depth discussion in this video Note other integrations, part of Ecommerce: Scoping Projects.
- You may have noticed a pattern that the more things…you try to integrate, the more work you have to do.…And it's helpful to pass along that idea to your clients.…They might not realize that adding a weather app,…a stock tracker, and a feed of recent purchases, et cetera,…takes time and costs them money.…For ecommerce to work, you have to accept money online.…That is the only required integration.…There are a lot of integrations that can make your life…easier, but they aren't mandatory.…And with a client who's never built an ecommerce store,…they might not realize that.…Let's say a client wants a particular integration…we haven't talked about yet.…
For example, an accounting integration.…Most ecommerce platforms do have integrations…for accounting services, but even when the integration…is there, it doesn't mean it's easy.…It could still take hours to set up.…If the client has an ERP, enterprise resource planning,…or inventory management solution,…those also take a ton of time to integrate.…Ask them about reporting integrations.…
