Why do retailers, wholesalers and border-right ands choose Brightpearl over TradeGecko?

Whether you’re looking to move away from TradeGecko or trying to decide between the two systems, this clear features comparison should help make your decision easier. These are the top six reasons why Brightpearl is better than TradeGecko.

Flexible order fulfillment workflows

If you’re looking for flexible fulfillment options like dropshipping or back order management, then TradeGecko may not be able to handle this level of complexity. With Brightpearl, you can automate dropship orders or manage your back and preorders with ease, eliminating the need to focus so much time on back office processes.

24 hour support & dedicated account manager

Brightpearl offers 24 hour support so you can get help with your business at any time of the day, no matter where in the world you’re based. You can also rely on your dedicated Customer Success Manager to help guide you through big business decisions. In contrast, TradeGecko only provides 24/7 phone support to its Pro customers.

Advanced reporting & business intelligence

TradeGecko provides useful reports to give you visibility on your inventory. However, if you want to have a complete set of data-driven retail insights and analytics covering your whole business, then TradeGecko’s inventory reporting may not be able to give you the full view. Unlike TradeGecko, Brightpearl’s built-in reporting and analytics tools provide you with a complete picture of your business, from deep product and customer insights, to financial reporting, inventory and demand planning and channel performance reports, enabling true insight-led decision-making for your business.

Save valuable time with automation

Brightpearl’s mission is to automate retail, so you can rely on us to help you save time by removing manual tasks in the day-to-day running of the business. With pre-built conditions, you’ll be able to easily set up automation rules that are tailored to your business workflows. With Brightpearl, you’ll be able to automate more repeatable operations in your entire sales order workflows, email marketing and customer service, saving time to focus on your front office strategies.

Advanced warehouse management

Efficiency in the warehouse is only as strong as your processes and underlying technology. Unlike TradeGecko, Brightpearl enables fuller warehouse management capacity within a separate dedicated interface, vastly improving merchants’ agility when performing cycle counts and picking, packing and shipping orders.

Flexible payment options

Compared to TradeGecko, Brightpearl allows greater flexibility in payment options, which results in a better experience for your customers and more efficiency for your team. Take payments on account over the phone, send click-to-pay invoices and save card details on account for less friction and better ease of use.

A feature rich alternative to TradeGecko

Brightpearl puts inventory, orders, fulfillment, accounting and more in a single system. Grow your retail business with a system that will grow with you.
