Lettuce – A Modernized Take On Inventory Management

In order to remain competitive, online retailers have to offer the lowest prices and fastest shipping times possible. Lettuce is a sales application that makes it easier for e-commerce sites to stay on top, offering powerful inventory management, payment processing, shipping, CRM, and accounting features within a unified web-based platform.

Streamline your online operation by integrating Lettuce with all the applications you currently use (including Shopify, QuickBooks,,UPS, and more). Orders that come in through your e-commerce site are processed in real-time through the Lettuce Hub, and the data generated by those orders — like invoicing, inventory, and order fulfillment — is automatically pushed to all the backend systems you’ve integrated with the platform. Just check off which actions you’d like to perform before processing each order, like charging a credit card, printing a shipping label, and deducting inventory, and Lettuce will handle these actions on your behalf.

By automating the management process, you can get more work done in less time. You can also view sales statistics and take orders from your desktop or mobile device, thanks to Lettuce’s iPad application. Lettuce offers a powerful analytics suite, with clear graphs and charts showcasing the best and worst performing products, and other pertinent sales information for online retailers.

Practical Uses:

  • Automate the sales process on your e-commerce website
  • Immediately print a shipping label each time a customer completes a transaction
  • Push all sales information to your inventory management app
  • Take orders from customers on your iPad
