Inventory Management

Connected systems, clean data, and a supply chain that runs itself

Automate your inventory management in Easyflow to break free of the supply chain labor routine.
Warehouses are still using spreadsheets to manage inventories. Easyflow allows you to turn hundreds of hours transferring the data manually into minutes to double check it.

The Problem

Managing inventory is especially difficult when your systems are disconnected and people have to fill in the gaps.
Between pulling CSVs from emails, monitoring returns, and manually updating tools like Shopify, keeping tools in sync can become a person's entire job.

The Solution

Transform your supply chain into one where the links are actually connected.

Inventory is the least standardised part of ecommerce, so your automations need to respond to lots of triggers.

Whether you get inventory updates from emailed CSVs, text messages, or directly from supply tools, Easyflow was built to receive them.

1. Automatically update store inventory

Intake inventory CSVs from your suppliers and update the items in Shopify

Many ecommerce teams have to periodically process CSVs of inventory data from their suppliers. That can add up to many, uncoordinated files, from multiple suppliers, in different formats.
Managing all of those files and updates can be a full-time job - but Easyflow can pull together your sources, clean the data and schedule syncs with Shopify.
Create an Easyflow flow to run whenever it receives a supplier email with a CSV attachment. From there, clean up the data with a few easy transforms (thin: find and replace a few values, update the cases on the titles, and filter out the product that you no longer carry). Then, connect it to update Shopify by mapping columns to fields. Once finished, this flow will run every time an email comes in, fully automating the process.

Update your Shopify inventory levels from any other tool

Use a Easyflow flow to monitor your inventory levels and make bulk updates efficiently. Create a Flow that simply syncs the inventory numbers from your primary source – a Google Sheet, an Airtable base, or even a 3PL – directly into your ecommerce tool of choice.
For example: your manufacturing facility runs out of key material and can't get more another for two weeks. Just hop into your Google Sheet and Zero out the items that use that material - your Easyflow flow will make sure Shopify is also zeroed out, so no new orders can come in for that product.

Issue refunds from a spreadsheet of returned merchandise, on-demand or automatically

Processing returns is a periodic, manual task. Perhaps a fulfilment partner or a colleague sends your team a spreadsheet of items that have been returned, along with some of the order information. Your team has to manually reconcile those returned items by issuing refunds in Shopify, which can be an entire day's work! Instead, an Easyflow flow can handle issuing refunds end-to-end.
Your Flow can be built to fit your exact situation - trigger it from an email with CSV attachment, upload an Excel file, or connect directly to another tool. Add custom logic to handle items where the refund isn't straightforward, or exclude items that are non-refundable.

2. Manage unique products

Automatically manage custom orders

Fulfilment isn't always as easy as shipping out the item that was purchased in your store. Customised orders, and items made to order, add a layer of complexity that ecommerce platforms don't always handle well. Introducing another workflow between the order and the fulfilment also creates the possibility of orders slipping through the cracks. Manage this with a Easyflow flow instead.
In a Flow, pull in unfulfilled orders, filter for those that are customised or made-to-order, and update the relevant information in a Google Sheet shared with your manufacturing partner. You can also add few easy steps to your Flow that ensure an item has not been sitting unfulfilled for too long. If it has, fire off an automatic email to yourself and anyone else who needs to know.

Organize Shopify collections automatically

Shopify's collections and tagging systems are powerful tools for creating rich store experiences. With Easyflow, you can automatically adjust which collections products are in and what tags are applied.
Build a Flow that moves products in and out of a manual collection based on which products are top sellers, or which products match the season. Or add and remove tags so that your smart collections in Shopify move the products around for you, based on their tags.

Manage bundled products

Tracking inventory, managing orders, and processing fulfillments on bundled products can be painful and extremely manual, especially when you have to deal with the occasional error. Let Easyflow do the heavy lifting.
Build Flows that properly adjust the inventory levels of the based products in any bundle ordered, split out the ordered bundle into individual items for fulfilment, and create reports that accurately reflect your business from bundles.

3. Quicly respond to low inventory

Automatic alerting for low inventory

Make your inventory levels actionable. Build an Easyflow Flow to watch your inventory levels and automatically send an alert when your available inventory dips too low. Slack, email, SMS, or your other favorite messaging platform can all be used.
Want to send alters to multiple channels, based on multiple conditions? Easyflow Flows can handle multiple destinations and logical branches, so it's easy to do in a single Flow.

Automate purchase orders based on custom low inventory thresholds

It's impossible to time your restock orders perfectly. You probably want to factor in the average turnaround time for an item, and how fast it typically sells – which is a daunting model to build and manage! This is where a Easyflow Flow can take over.
Build a Flow that calculates dynamic inventory level alerts and fires off orders as your items reach their own threshold. That threshold could even be adjusted to account for high to low demand months.
