Each sync cycle Accumula begins the transfer of data to and from each integrated system. A cycle can be as short as about 90 seconds.
Each cycle Accumula downloads any data created and modified more recently than the last successful sync and then according to your settings will upload any data received from other systems since the last successful sync.
Once this process is complete a new cycle begins.
Your point of sale is the source for your product data. Sending a product to your online store can be done by tagging the product with "accumula". Your existing products can be matched to to save time getting set up.
Inventory and Products Update
Each time an integrated product is saved, sold, transferred, or returned in your point of sale Accumula will update the product in your online store according to your update settings.
Your online store's customers are downloaded and matched to existing customers in your point of sale by email address. Matched customers are updated in point of sale, and customers with unmatched email addresses are created.
Orders from your online store are created in point of sale as Sales, Orders, Quotes, or Invoices depending on what point of sale you use.
In most cases this ensures that inventory is committed immediately resulting in tighter inventory control and faster fulfillment. Workflows that don't commit inventory are optional but open up more opportunity to customize orders.
Each order record in point of sale will include references for shipping, discounts, and taxes.
Refunds and returns completed in your online store are downloaded and reflected as refunds in your point of sale. This will restock inventory in your point of sale if it was restocked online.
