Can Mintsoft and Unleashed work together?

Mintsoft and Unleashed as stand-alone solutions offer great benefits and features; however if you need a selection of both of their capabilities, for example, production, B2B and B2C sales, and shipping, you may be wondering which would be best for your business.

Luckily, as both solutions are owned by The Access Group, the systems integrate with each other and work together, so you can have the best of both softwares.

An example use case of when you’d need both softwares is if you’re a business that manufactures or assembles products, and needs to import orders from both ecommerce sales channels for B2C sales and B2B wholesale orders for fulfillment, and despatching orders through outsourced shipping services.
