Ecommerce fulfilment made easy with ekmPowershop.com and SixWorks

Leading cloud providers integrate1 in every 5 online shop owners can look forward to hassle free order fulfilment this week, through ekmPowershop.com's latest cloud partner, SixWorks.

Six provides a complete order fulfilment service at the push of a button, allowing for truly hands-off selling. This latest integration with ekmPowershop.com not only takes care of the warehousing and delivery of products; but also provides customisable, branded paperwork, customer emails and much more.

Automated order transfer, return of delivery/tracking info and up-to-the second stock level sharing are all easily achieved through SixWork’s comprehensive fulfilment solution, combined with ekmPowershop.com’s market leading ecommerce software.

How do online shop owners take a much deserved break when their business is open 24/7, 365 days of the year? In a word: fulfilment. And that’s exactly what Six does with a process that’s invisible to the end user.

John Bradbury from ekmPowershop.com says: “The ‘final mile’ is often overlooked by many businesses when they start selling online. As the operation scales, fulfilment of the order efficiently and on time can be one of the biggest challenges they face.

If consumers experience any problems in receiving their goods ordered over the internet, then you can be sure to garner a bad reputation quickly in a market that’s full of competition. Six’s integration with ekmPowershop.com means clients can re-route all of their stock to Six’s warehouse facilities, and forget about the hassle of despatches and holding their own stock - for good.”

ekmPowershop.com’s back office integrations now include multi channel stock control, order fulfilment, pick and pack solutions and an accountancy software integration due for announcement in a matter of weeks.

“We’re pushing the back office aspect of ekmPowershop.com in terms of 3rd party integrations, and for us this latest integration ticks a very large box, as  Six offer such a comprehensive fulfilment solution.
