Wouldn’t it be great if you could use your familiar Excel for WooCommerce store management? Instead of navigating through multiple sheets, get everything at a single place. Big time savings, improved store efficiency and better life. That’s what Natalie desired and achieved it using Smart Manager. Let’s see how.
Natalie runs her online WooCommerce store “yourlingeriewholesaler.co.uk” which sells luxury lingerie and hosiery collections from some of the industry’s most-established lingerie manufacturers, such as Leg Avenue, Elegant Moments and Coquette.
Established in 2007, the brand has been operating for nearly 15 years. Currently, her portfolio range consists of 600+ products, including festival wear, nightwear, fetishwear, and body accessories.
How difficult was store management for Natalie before using Smart Manager?
As Natalie says, before Smart Manager, she only had a basic stock quantity input plugin and had to manage all the inventory with excel spreadsheets.
So, she had to deal with multiple spreadsheets to view inventory, keep updating quantities daily and using these sheets to refer to track orders. Now, navigating through multiple spreadsheets each time is a big pain. It’s also prone to errors.
And if you consider doing it with default WooCommerce, whether you want to add new products, add categories to them, track and modify order statuses, you need to go through each product and order to do it.
If you get stuck, it can impact your other business activities. Doing it for hundreds and thousands of products is a nightmare.
All Natalie needed was a global overview of her store inventory so that she could quickly update inventory, manage orders, bulk edit items and export files.
In short, she wanted freedom from these stressful and time-consuming tasks.
How Smart Manager made store management simple and quick?
With Smart Manager, Natalie could achieve all mentioned above easily and have all of her data in one place. Here’s what she mentioned –
Entire store overview at one place
It’s easy to have all 600+ products listed in one place in an Excel-like spreadsheet, so navigation becomes easy and editing any product is just a click away.
Bulk editing products
Used the bulk edit feature to add certain items to a new category. If used the earlier method or the default WooCommerce way, it could have taken an hour or so. But not from now onwards. All I required is just to select the products and assign a category using the bulk edit feature. Takes hardly a minute.
Can also easily bulk edit prices, update stock as and when required and export data by applying filters.
Customers and order insights
However, where Smart Manager stood out for me is analyzing orders data and customer data.
I can check when a customer last ordered, see how many orders have been placed during a certain time frame and also manage orders as and when required.
Using this data, it becomes helpful to target specific customers using email marketing. Learn more about customer export and insights.
The StoreApps support team is really helpful and always aims to resolve any issues.
