Unleash the full potential of letting your systems talk to each other.

We love online shopping. And many have something to sell – it could be the local installer who sells spare parts alongside his primary work, or one of the many companies that makes a living exclusively by selling their own products online.

If you are thinking about starting a webshop, or already have one, you should be aware of this point: A webshop system is not enough to keep track of finances.


A webshop is not the same as a bookkeeping system

When you buy a piece of software to manage your webshop, you basically get a website. Webshops are a system for managing a website optimized to provide a good shopping experience for your customers.

Most webshop systems give you:

  • Shopping basket
  • Product comparison
  • Product images and descriptions
  • Overview of how much you are selling
  • Which products sell best

But there is still a long way to go to keep track of the company’s finances. In addition, some countries set requirements for digital bookkeeping, and expect you to use an approved accounting system.

For this reason, most people choose to have a separate system for accounting next to the webshop. The advantage of a system for bookkeeping is that it is optimized to keep track of your finances.

EG Xena is such a digital financial system that can be used together with your webshop. With EG Xena, you have everything under control:

  • Article groups and articles
  • VAT, tax and duty
  • Stock management
  • Price management
  • Bank reconciliation
  • Follow-up on order and delivery
  • Reports, statistics and more


How to connect your webshop to your accounting system

Now we arrive at the main point. It’s fine to have a webshop system that makes it easy to manage the store and an accounting system that can keep track of the finances. But if you have to manually transfer data from one system to the other, you have gained nothing.

On the other hand, if you get the systems to talk to each other, you will achieve the full effect of digitisation and you will avoid a lot of manual work! This can help you save both time and money.

Fortunately, it’s not as difficult as it might sound. Thanks to our business partner Pairy, EG Xena can be integrated with seven popular webshop systems!
