Core features of Brightpearl’s Automation Engine


Automate order fulfillment workflows

Easily automate order fulfillment and inventory allocation based on a vast range of configurable conditions and fulfillment options. That lets you create rules that meet the needs of your business.


Automatic dropshipping 

Automatically raise a purchase order with your supplier when dropshipping goods, and choose which supplier based on your preferences.


Automate multi-location fulfillment

If inventory is stocked in multiple warehouses, our automation engine can find inventory to fulfil an order in the warehouses that you choose and in the order you set, saving time on manual inventory allocation.


Automatic purchase order creation 

Automatically choose from the cheapest, primary, or specified supplier for each item when you’re out of stock in the warehouse or for your normal business operations.


Automatic partial fulfillment

Enable partial allocation in automation rules, to get any available items to your customers as soon as possible.


Automated warehouse transfers

Automate warehouse transfers in selected warehouses for either unallocated inventory or a full order. Enable partial transfer when not all items are available from a single location.


Invoice your orders without lifting a finger

Ensure your accounting is always up-to-date by automatically invoicing orders that are fully paid and shipped, or at any other stage of the process you choose.


Configure your own rules

Easily determine which orders should be picked up by the Automation engine or managed manually, and assign associated actions to each rule to meet your desired workflows.


Automation works to your schedule

By default, automation works around the clock, processing orders as soon as possible. But we also have a range of scheduling options to suit your needs. Choose from daily, weekly, or monthly routines so the automation engine only runs when you want it to.


Tag customers for targeted marketing

Use the automation engine’s configurable rules to tag customers based on what they’re buying. Sync these tags with your customer lists in MailChimp or other marketing platforms, for true campaign automation.
