Swann Communications Case Study APPSeCONNECT
Get to know how Swann Communications was able to achieve outstanding shipping rates through a completely integrated business through the power of APPSeCONNECT.
The Flight of Success

Swann Communications has grown to become one of the most popular DIY video surveillance, consumer electronics, and security-centric solution providers across the globe based out of Australia. They are now part of Infinova Group, providing the business with enhanced manufacturing capabilities, innovative research and development of security and networking solutions, and rank as the World’s largest DIY home security solution manufacturer.

Being the largest global manufacturer of security devices, they were operating with more data than ever with their constantly growing global orders. To simplify the process of managing their increasing bulk of online sales and company processes, they implemented four different applications, SAP Business One as the back-end ERP with Magento, eBay, and Amazon FBA as their digital storefronts. With all four applications effectively in place, Swann Communications was able to upscale its operations, however, they were soon to realize that, with greater business data, comes greater difficulties in manually managing it.

Overcoming All Challenges Through Vigilance
Managing increasing sales through three different online stores manually was becoming impractical for Swann Communications. Moreover, they had multiple accounts for eBay and Amazon. The multiple platforms and accounts drastically raised the risk of data redundancy and bad data across the entire system due to human errors. The loss of sales and business opportunities due to erroneous data and slow business reactivity are hurdles every enterprise wants to avoid. They needed an intelligent business process automation solution that could seamlessly integrate their ERP implementation with all three eCommerce solutions and digital marketplaces and enable them to flexibly scale their business growth. The solution they needed that could meet all their requirements was APPeCONNECT’s robust iPaaS platform.
The SAP Business One + Amazon, SAP Business One + eBay and SAP Business One + Magento Connector by APPSeCONNECT

The expansive bulk of sales and order data coming in from multiple channels made it extremely difficult to track and manage them manually without the help of any automation tools. The solution that simplified managing the complete software stack of Swann Communications was APPSeCONNECT’s connectors for SAP Business One with Amazon, eBay, and Magento. With the powerful and intelligent APPSeCONNECT iPaaS solution in place, they were able to achieve secure and instantaneous two-way transfer of business-critical data across their SAP Business One, eBay, Amazon, and Magento implementations.

The SAP Business One + Amazon, SAP Business One + eBay, and SAP Business One + Magento connectors by APPSeCONNECT offered fast and secure out-of-the-box ready integrations to drastically improve their shipment speed and deliver faster to markets.
