Overcoming Common Pain Points of Managing Square & eCommerce Inventory

The Pain of Balancing POS & eCommerce Inventory

We hear you loud and clear and have some good news. With Square and SKU IQ you can simplify your retail operations and inventory management across multiple sales channels, including connecting with your eCommerce site.  

You probably already know that Square is one of the most powerful POS solutions for small business owners. Square gives you a lot of tools to help your business grow, but keeping track of inventory between your Square for Retail account and your eCommerce store can be a pain if you don’t choose the right integration solution.

What your business needs is software that can seamlessly integrate your website inventory with your Square POS, creating a single source of truth for all of your inventory data.

Meet SKU IQ, an app that allows you to connect your Square POS with industry leading eCommerce platforms. Control all of your inventory in one easy-to-use dashboard. You can track orders, inventory, set up stock alerts, and more.

Let’s look at how Square and SKU IQ combine to provide a unique solution to common pain points experienced by merchants like you. 


Manual Inventory Counts Are A Time-Suck

Trying to grow a business is hard enough without spending precious hours entering row after row of manual inventory counts. Entering and reviewing data from a brick-and-mortar store and cross referencing it with eCommerce inventory to maintain accurate stock can be a complex and time-consuming commitment for retail managers. Not to mention, manually entering inventory data can lead to inaccuracy or costly errors.

To save effort, money, and time you can connect your Square POS with your eCommerce site. SKU IQ provides real-time automation that eliminates the need for manual data entry and gives you greater accuracy for better inventory management. It does all the work for you. The SKU IQ app enables you to manage your product catalog, stock counts, and more with a fraction of the effort. You’ll have more time to spend on more important activities that could make a bigger difference for your growing company. 

As an entrepreneur, you know every minute counts and SKU IQ gives you back hours so you can focus on what matters most to you. Don’t take it from us, here is what one of our customers has to say in a review about using SKU IQ with their Square POS to connect with their eCommerce site.

Before SKU IQ, we had to manually update our inventory between our e-commerce site and our POS. Thank goodness we found SKU IQ. And unlike other apps, customer support is responsive and virtual meetings can be scheduled–that’s right, convenient for you!” – Glissant

Wouldn’t It Be Nice If Your Software Was Easier to Use

As a business owner, the focus on your energy should be spent on running your business, not learning new tech. That’s why it’s so great that SKU IQ is as easy to integrate with Square as it could possibly be. 

SKU IQ is incredibly intuitive to work with and even if you don’t have a lot of experience with integrations, you’ll be able to quickly set up superior inventory management with a few clicks without needing an IT background to connect everything.  In less than an hour you can run through their simple setup process that is outlined for you in a nice onboarding wizard and enjoy your newfound freedom from inventory woes.

Or if you feel anxious about setting it all up on your own, an onboarding call is only a click away and they can get everything connected for you. Plus, they provide ongoing dedicated customer support to help you or show you how to use your dashboard if you get stuck anywhere along the way. 

So what kind of data does SKU IQ update? The product quantity, name, description, price, SKU, photos, and more can seamlessly pass through SKU IQ from your Square POS to your current eCommerce site.

During the setup process, they include a link report that helps you find any duplicated items between your POS and eCommerce inventory, saving you tons of time identifying potential inaccuracies as you synchronize your data for the first time.

You have full control over your data and how it is linked and updated between systems. You can choose a source of truth – and then it will automatically update the other system when there is a change. You can update products in one system and then SKU IQ can push them to the other, or you can edit your product catalog within your SKU IQ dashboard directly, so rather than entering the same product into multiple systems, you enter it once and you’re done!
