New feature release: Automation

TradeGecko customers can now create workflows to automatically run frequent, repeated tasks on sales orders and fulfillments with the all new, rebranded Automation.

Previously known as TradeGecko Connect, it was politely buried in our App Store and yet it remained as one of our more popular, highly-installed features. After receiving positive feedback from our customers about TradeGecko Connect, we decided to improve the experience, give it better visibility (it's now sitting under "Sales Orders"!) and rebrand it to something more accurate: Automation.

What is Automation?

Automation enables you to build and customize sales order workflows to:

  1. Route Orders to different Warehouses based on Stock Levels or different Locations
  2. Add Line Items to Orders such as Products, Discounts, and Shipping.
  3. Send Email and Slack Notifications to Customers or your Team Members.
  4. Add Tags and Notes to Orders and Relationships.
  5. Send Invoices, Pack Orders and create Fulfillments.

How does Automation help my business?

Our goal at TradeGecko is to optimize your business operations as much as possible, and to help you save time. We're starting with Sales Orders and Fulfillments by enabling you to:

  • Reduce manual work and focus on growing your business. No more energy wasted on doing repeated tasks.
  • Built for businesses with multiple warehouses and expanding operations. Create fulfillments on orders globally using advanced order routing. Route orders to be fulfilled from warehouse locations based on region or available stock. Assign orders to a fall-back warehouse of your choice, if the warehouse closest to them is running low.
  • Automated communication with customers and your team members. Build and retain customer confidence with instant and accurate order and shipping confirmation emails and invoices. Keep your team working efficiently with emails and Slack messages to keep track of tasks.
