Brightpearl joins Shopify Plus Technology Partner Program to help retailers and wholesalers manage and grow their business

AUSTIN, Texas and BRISTOL, UK – 2 April 2019 Brightpearl, the world’s largest purpose-built retail operations platform has joined the Shopify Plus Technology Partner Program to offer a new solution that will enable retailers and wholesalers to manage their entire business.

Shopify Plus provides some of the world's fastest-growing brands with a customizable ecommerce solution without the need for large investments of time, money or resources. Similarly, Brightpearl provides everything that retailers and wholesalers need to grow efficiently, delight customers and make smart trading decisions in real-time.

“We’re excited to work together with Shopify Plus to offer a complete, integrated solution to merchants that need to keep pace in the evolving world of omnichannel commerce,” said Derek O’Carroll, CEO, Brightpearl. “Our partnership will allow Shopify Plus customers to easily, quickly and seamlessly connect the storefront with the rest of the business via Brightpearl’s platform. This will provide merchants with full visibility and control over their entire business – including orders, end-to-end fulfillment and shipping – and real-time updates on inventory, accounting and sales. It’s all managed from a single, simple hub.”

Brightpearl officially joins the Shopify Plus Technology Partner Program, a community of industry-leading agencies and commerce technologies supporting Shopify Plus merchants.

"We are thrilled to welcome Brightpearl to the Shopify Plus Technology Partner Program which recognizes the best-in-class solutions that, together with Shopify Plus, enables the rapid growth and innovation possibilities of today’s merchants. Brightpearl’s technology plays an important role in ensuring our merchants have an excellent user experience while growing their business,” said Martyn Boddy, Head of Partnerships, Shopify Plus.

Brightpearl’s O’Carroll adds: “The integration with Shopify Plus provides a rapid and easy-to-deploy solution that will help merchants scale dramatically, manage their entire operations as efficiently as possible and make the best strategic business decisions.”

Brightpearl is also making its new built-for-retail Order Management Solution (OMS) immediately accessible to those using the Shopify Plus platform. Brightpearl's Order Management Solution combines inventory and order management with accounting and a purpose-built integration to Shopify Plus; making it ideal for merchants for whom managing multiple standalone apps is simply not practical as they scale.

“We’re pleased to extend our new OMS offering to merchants using the Shopify Plus platform,” said O’Carroll. “Retaining many core features of the classic Brightpearl platform, it’s the ideal solution for smaller retail businesses that are looking to accelerate efficiencies and savings while better serving their customers' needs and expectations on placing orders how, where and when they want to.”

Combining Brightpearl’s platform with Shopify Plus' multi-channel solution will maximize opportunities to enhance the entire customer journey, build shopper loyalty and increase sales. Shopify Plus merchants using Brightpearl are already seeing success.

“The integration of Shopify Plus and Brightpearl is the easiest I’ve ever been a part of,” said Andy Lockley, Head of Ecommerce at Love Shopping Direct. “It was a seamless transition that got us up and running in hours; a testament to how well Brightpearl and Shopify Plus work together.”

“Shoppers have been amazed at how quickly we now handle next-day orders, and this has translated into a huge increase in positive feedback about our service. With Brightpearl and Shopify Plus acting as the centerpiece of our entire business, we don’t just meet our customer delivery expectations; we’re exceeding them, with an experience that both surprises and delights shoppers. I would suggest using Brightpearl and Shopify Plus to any growing business that’s looking to extend channels or marketplaces while adding efficiency into their operation.”
