BEAUTI Breaks Growth Barriers With Shopify Plus Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations Integration
Reducing manual processes and workarounds unlocked the flexibility and efficiency needed to deliver great customer experiences for BEAUTI’s client base. Let’s take a look at BEAUTI’s journey creating an ultimate unified experience with Shopify Plus and Microsoft Dynamics Finance and Operations integration.
Established in November of 2018 by the holding RCITH.com, BEAUTI comes from the desire to cater to Saudi Arabia’s most discerning clientele. From its flagship store in Jeddah, the company has made its presence known by its unique attention to customer needs and dedication to first-rate customer service standards.
BEAUTI has become one of the most innovative beauty and personal care companies in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). Offering a lineup of thoughtfully selected luxury products from the world’s most loved brands, BEAUTI is a destination that guarantees a seamless experience to their clients offering authentic international luxury brands while maintaining spectacular customer service, shipping services, and unexpected surprises to customers.
With over 300 brands on their website and physical store in Jeddah, BEAUTI houses the most desired, 100% authentic makeup, perfume, skincare, haircare, wellness, and lifestyle products in the region. Growing in the eCommerce marketplace internationally, BEAUTI was looking for an agile and scalable integration solution that would connect their Shopify Plus eCommerce store with their ERP, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations.
Case Study: The Need for Seamless Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations and Shopify Integration
BEAUTI’s team met VL OMNI at the second annual Shopify Plus event in Dubai. They wanted to remove their dependence on manual processes and knew they needed a robust integration solution to do so. They were unsatisfied with the current solutions on the market as they could not tailor the solution to their specific needs.
By utilizing expertise by integration veteran VL OMNI, BEAUTI reconfigured their ecommerce strategy to include seamless Shopify integration with Dynamics 356 Finance and Operations.
The Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations and Shopify Connector eliminated manual processes and was configured to the specific business rules of BEAUTI. This integration solution allowed the beauty retailer to improve their customer experience standards to better serve their customers.
Creating An Omnichannel Commerce Experience with Back-end Integration
Merchants like BEAUTI sync Customers, Orders, Products, Shipments, and Price data between Shopify Plus and Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations with our Integration Connector. With our pre-built integration Connector, BEAUTI can do all key operations in Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations and key eCommerce processes in Shopify Plus. All without having to manually sync data back and forth or duplicate processes like manual data entry. Seamlessly connecting both their ERP system and eCommerce platform ultimately benefits the eCommerce experience.
BEAUTI’s Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations Shopify Integration
Let’s go through the overall integration process created by VL OMNI for BEAUTI.
Orders and Shipments
When orders are made on their Shopify Plus store, the order information is picked up by VL OMNI via webhook. The Order information flows to their Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations ERP via API call. An order is open on Microsoft Dynamics 365 until marked as fulfilled.
Once the order has been fulfilled in Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations, another event is then fired off in the webhook set up by VL OMNI. VL then takes this information and delivers it into Shopify via API call. This call closes the order in Shopify Plus and marks it as invoiced/complete.
Updated inventory information is picked up by VL OMNI from Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations. This happens via API call at a schedule and then updated information passes along to Shopify Plus via API. The information on Shopify’s end will then reflect any inventory information changes.
Price and Product
Updated Pricing information is picked up by VL OMNI from Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations via API call. Price changes will then appear to reflect updates on Shopify’s end. New Products and updated existing products on D365 are then picked up from the API call. Then, the updated information passes along to BEAUTI’s Shopify Plus store.
