What struggles David faced before he discovered Smart Manager?

David and the team at Shot Scope used to manage stock manually. And with their fulfillment centers located in different parts of the world, viewing or editing global stock levels was very time consuming.

They found it difficult to keep a track of regionalised pricing from one e-commerce store due to the product range being available across several countries.

They also have a very successful affiliate program, but keeping on top of affiliate marketing codes was a challenge. And at times, it took hours to update several conditions individually for each coupon code.

Why did David pick Smart Manager only?

David and team were aware of the Smart Manager plugin and were very impressed with the free version.

They tested it on their development environment and decided that the Pro version would fulfill their requirements.

How did Smart Manager help David overcome the struggles?

By using Smart Manager, Shot Scope were able to set up custom dashboard views, with the ability to easily switch between them.

Custom dashboard views enable you to create your own dashboard to make frequent changes to a specific data set.

The Export functionality replaced their previous manual stock management process, enabling them to export global stock levels into a CSV file efficiently.

They also utilized bulk editing to update stock levels across all fulfillment centers in just around five minutes, saving 3 hours per week and significantly improving efficiency.

Moreover, they used Bulk Edit to update pricing across several regions at SKU level from one dashboard, rather than having to manually and individually change each price per region. This saved another 2 hours per week.

Additionally, they used Bulk Edit to update affiliate marketing coupon codes to exclude / include conditions and update expiry dates. More about bulk editing coupons.
