As the growing digital population is all set to rock India's economy and business landscape, it has become vital for businesses to go online as well. A budding entrepreneur who is looking at selling his products online can create his own e-commerce website or sell products on other online marketplaces such as Flipkart, eBay, Amazon, etc.
After registering with these online marketplaces that allow you to sell products for a commission, managing different dashboards, stock list & inventories becomes difficult. In order to simplify the online selling process, tools have been developed to integrate all of these into one single dashboard.
Tools like Browntape, ecomdash, boostmysale, etc provide one common dashboard to manage all your orders and inventories across e-commerce platforms. Let’s take a look at what each of these softwares have to offer:
Selling across multiple ecommerce marketplaces in India
If Indian market is your main business focus, the below mentioned tools are some of the key players in providing inventory and order management solutions:
Unicommerce, recently acquired by Snapdeal has an inventory management software for e-commerce, integrated with some of the world's leading online marketplaces and cart solutions.

It’s a cloud based inventory management application that consolidates and processes orders from multiple marketplaces. It removes the clutter out of multichannel selling and gives real-time updates on competitor's pricing as well. It also analyses shipping rates and gets the most cost-efficient rates from leading delivery companies to process the orders.
Online selling across various marketplaces means having to oversee and manage different channels and processes. As and when the business grows in terms of more online marketplaces and product orders, resorting to such tools & solutions providers becomes inevitable. They greatly help in streamlining processes, reducing the infrastructure cost and provide great insights, which might otherwise go unnoticed in a daily tracking routine.

Great list of resources. Here, i would like to add Contalog's multi channel inventory and order management software. They are also providing the best features for cloud based interface, dynamic stock control, integration with most of the eCommerce systems and third party market places for any business. Moreover, they allows you to manage order and product information across multiple sales channel. I hope the above details gave some idea.
