Unify’s new dashboard helps you take action

Unify's new dashboard helps you take actionClean, graphical UI offers more insights, clearer calls to action than ever before

Today we unveiled a powerful new dashboard for our flagship product Unify, giving users more insights and clearer calls to action than ever before. This is the first of several product releases aimed at helping retailers like you easily take the next right steps for their e-commerce business. Unify is known to be the first e-commerce solution that connects and unifies all revenue streams and expenses so multi-channel businesses can have better perspective, make smarter decisions, and run all operations from a single view. And now it’s even easier to use.

Helping our customers conquer the challenges that come with being multi-channel and letting them run and scale their business exactly the way they want, Unify connects their financial data rather than forcing them to switch platforms. With this new dashboard, Unify users can access visualized data from across their entire company, showing quickly what is in sync and what is not across their sales channels and accounting. The Unify dashboard offers a clear call to action, suggesting next steps based on analytics and behavioral psychology insights gained from users’ past business decisions. For example, with one look, e-commerce leaders can tell if their sales and inventory levels are properly aligned, and—if they are not—receive a suggestion for how to correct the problem. Future iterations of the dashboard will propose more actions and provide additional recommendations.

By illuminating and explaining what needs to be done to move your business forward, the new Unify dashboard brings increased intelligence, engagement, and psychological motivation to e-commerce businesses. Unify is designed to gather all information to one place, and now we have taken the next step and making it easy for companies to quickly engage with and act on that data. As we reach the peak of the holiday season, this agility will be critical to our customers’ success.

The new Unify dashboard is now available to all current customers.
