The agreement between Scapta and Velosio cements a strategic partnership to distribute newly launched Scapta Shopify Connector for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. The solution, developed by Belgian company Scapta, will be made available to Shopify stores worldwide, including more than 500,000 in the US market.
Shopify provides e-commerce solutions to some 600,000 retailers around the globe which account for one million active users and combined online sales of $72 billion USD. Shopify clients using Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central require a secure integration of online sales with back office financials, inventory and supply chain management. That’s why Scapta developed the Scapta Shopify Connector, an app that easily links the e-commerce platform with Microsoft’s leading cloud solution for business operations. Clients not currently using Shopify or Dynamics 365 will be able to adopt both platforms as a value-added bundle.
“We are excited about the Scapta Shopify Connector and the opportunity to work with Microsoft Dynamics 365 customers who benefit from the Shopify e-commerce platform,” says James Bowman, chief revenue officer for Velosio. “With more than 30 years in this space, our team understands the importance of fluid transactional processes and has the expertise to help these companies modernize and realize business value faster.”
The Scapta Shopify Connector was successfully launched in September 2018 and made available on Microsoft AppSource, a B2B app store for Microsoft business applications. As part of the launch, Scapta showcased the solution at Directions North America in San Diego for Microsoft Dynamics partners. The Scapta Shopify Connector was received quite favorably, leading to an initial distribution agreement between the two companies.
“We chose Velosio as a partner to distribute our product on a major scale,” says Alex Vandereycken, Managing Director of Scapta, after spending two weeks in the States. “Over 80% of Shopify clients are active in the US, Velosio’s home market. They have thousands of Microsoft Dynamics clients and manage a network of 200+ Microsoft resellers. We are both enthusiastic about the enormous potential of the Scapta Shopify Connector.”
