  • Admin Panel for An eCommerce Company

    This company was having a hard time managing all the third party software that they were using. For eCommerce, they were using WooCommerce, for shipping—Shipstation, for inventory—Finale, for marketing—Hubspot, and for accounting—QuickBooks.

    It was difficult for their employees to get proficient in day-to-day tasks since they had to master various software. I created an admin dashboard for them where they can update/modify their products, track their orders, get reports about their sales, export their invoices and payments to QuickBooks, and keep their customers' emails synced with Hubspot.
