Why integrate with Slack?

Do you use slack for collaborating with your team members? Hard to tell when a new order came in from an online sales channel into Zoho Inventory? Things just became easier for you! Combine your Zoho Inventory organization with your Slack team and have notifications pushed into your preferred Slack channel (#general, #random, etc.)

Let’s take a scenario where a Product team comprising of four members use Slack to communicate within the team and the organization they work for uses Zoho Inventory for order management.

The product team’s day-to-day activities involve re-stocking the much needed low stock items through purchases, ensure that the right stock levels are updated across all their modes of selling, follow up with orders across multiple channels and fulfil them.

Enabling Zoho Inventory - Slack integration would push all reorder and online sales notifications from Zoho Inventory to the Product team’s Slack channel. This will include notifications about an order generated from a sales channel say Shopify, stock updated to their online stores etc.

This saves a great deal of time as the integration brings all the information in one place, thereby keeping all the members of the team on the same page.
