This client is an online retailer and wholesaler with B2B, direct-to-consumer and affiliate sales. Sales orders were received from three main channels. The first, directly from their own online retail storefront, hosted on Shopify. Secondly, B2B and wholesale sales were received via the Unleased ecommerce platform and the third channel was via Amazon.
With a network of global suppliers, purchase invoices had to be recorded and payments made in multiple currencies. Alongside an extensive payroll list, the internal accounts department was under pressure to keep up with demands and the existing hardware-based accounting platform was no longer fit for purpose.
