- How did it not go well so far?

Step 3: Exploit New Opportunities
They have reached certain limits before migration.
Now, with your new system, new opportunities and processes exist. Take full advantage of the possibilities and integrate this approach into your processes.
Inventory management, shipping, customer service, content marketing, and product development are just a few examples that can benefit from your new store technology.
Integration of your Store System with other Software
Integration and Optimization of your Online Store
A classic example of integration with the online store is inventory management. Especially if you sell via multiple channels, manual inventory management is difficult.
A simple solution is, for example, to designate one store as the leading system and to handle warehouse management via the integrated functions in this store.
Another option is external systems such as shipping solutions that access your orders through all channels anyway for generating shipping labels. Many systems also offer warehouse management, you can use this to keep the management of your warehouse under control.
If all of this is no longer enough and you need specialized functionality and customization to your own business processes, it may be time for an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) System.
Customer service can also be integrated very well with the store. Examples here include FAQ on the product pages to reduce customer service inquiries and the automatic sending of installation videos via Marketing Automation Software, for example.
