Sealskinz Automates 90% of its Order Management Processes by Integrating Shopify, SYSPRO and 3PL

BPA Platform improves sales order management and logistics for manufacturer and retailer
POOLE, U.K. - March 27, 2024 - PRLog -- Codeless Platforms today revealed that Sealskinz, a manufacturer and retailer of waterproof endurance accessories, has improved its sales order management and logistics by deploying BPA Platform to integrate Shopify, SYSPRO and a 3PL company. Sealskinz has subsequently automated 90% of its order management processes.

"The circumstances that initiated the first project was Brexit and the sudden requirement to pay the relevant VAT to the IRS. We sell a fair amount of our products into Europe through our website. However, we suddenly needed to separate out VAT for specific European countries to be able to submit IRS returns. We therefore needed a way of splitting up the orders so that we could analyse the VAT and submit all the returns," explained Tim Petts, IT Manager, Sealskinz.

"The integration between Shopify and SYSPRO was very successful and BPA Platform subsequently became our main middleware. That system has now been running for almost four years and it's running very well."

The next project that Sealskinz needed to focus on was when it opened a bonded warehouse at its headquarters to address the VAT implications created by Brexit.

"We opened up a bonded warehouse at our headquarters in King's Lynn as we wanted to bond all our stock that we buy in from China. We set up the two APIs between SYSPRO and BPA Platform to a system called Descartes – a logistics technology platform," explained Tim Petts.

Sealskinz has experienced significant changes and growth in the past eighteen months, which led to the company employing a 3PL company to distribute its products.

"We were predominantly a socks, gloves and hat business. However, now we make T-shirts, hoodies, swim shorts, etc. As a result, we moved our business from our warehouse in King's Lynn, to a third-party logistics (3PL) company in Milton Keynes. We now send all of our dispatch data down to the 3PL and they distribute it for us", explained Tim Petts.

"There's a lot of task development in the BPA Platform console, using Codeless Platforms' SYSPRO connector tool ( and web connector tool to pass strings and data from A to B. It is sending stock to the 3PL as well as receiving GRNs and ASINs back in. That system is used heavily. We've probably automated in the region of 80-90% of the system, from order entry through to the customer getting it," said Tim Petts.

"It's a fantastic platform. I highly recommend it. There are so many options with BPA Platform ( – the variety of connectors and what it can do. It's the user friendliness of the GUI in BPA Platform that makes it stand out," enthused Tim Petts.
