Your Shopify Sales are on the up and up which is great! However, with additional sales comes additional admin and an increasing sense of urgency to fulfil orders quickly and smoothly, while handling customer queries and keeping the website up to date. When it was just a few orders a week, one person in accounts could easily absorb the additional admin into their daily workload. But now things are getting a bit more serious, perhaps you’ve hired someone new onto the team to help keep on top of the online orders.

If the above scenario describes your business then you’re likely starting to think about how to scale your online operation whilst keeping control of customer service, accounting and costs.
