Veeqo helps some of the fastest growing retail brands provide an incredible customer experience, shipping every order from every sales channel on time and with 100% accuracy.
Veeqo is a platform for retailers to automate their entire back office - a powerful Brightpearl alternative.Discover our features»
Veeqo is full of innovative features that Brightpearl simply doesn't support. Below are just some of the reasons people at fast-growing retail brands choose Veeqo as a Brightpearl alternative.
Veeqo is fully-loaded with features any retailer needs to manage and grow an omnichannel retail business.
Retailers love the fact that they can control everything from our platform – including purchasing from suppliers, shipping and tracking orders from any channel, using our Veeqo Scanner to manage their warehouse operations and reporting on their entire business via our analytics and reporting dashboard.
With Brightpearl, you’ll still need to use additional 3rd-party apps for vital requirements such as shipping and warehouse management. This adds additional costs to your business, and results in an inconsistent customer experience.
Veeqo integrates directly with 17 of the world’s largest shipping couriers, including Royal Mail, DHL, UPS, USPS, FedEx and more. You can handle the entire shipping process from a single platform, without ever logging in to your main courier accounts.
In contrast, Brightpearl uses third-party shipping providers such as Metapack and ShipStation to handle shipping.
Not only does this mean their users have to pay an extra cost for shipping, it also means logging in to multiple systems every time you need to ship an order, or track a delivery – which can become extremely inconvenient and problematic when shipping a high volume of multichannel orders.
Veeqo integrates directly with the world’s leading accounting platforms – Xero, QuickBooks Desktop and QuickBooks Online. Sales data from any channel is automatically synced with your accounting software, making it easier for retailers to stay on top of their numbers.
Brightpearl have built their own accounting platform, rather than integrating with these world-leading platforms. The functionality is far more limited than the likes of Xero and QuickBooks. You’ll have to migrate all your accounts to Brightpearl’s platform, and train your accountant on a new tool that they won’t be familiar with.
As soon as you’ve made the decision to sign up to Veeqo, our friendly implementation team will have you up and running quickly. You’ll be live on our system anywhere between one day and four weeks.
Brightpearl reviews indicate you’ll be waiting many months before you’re live with their system, and have to pay set up fees totalling many thousands of dollars just to get up and running.
All Veeqo retailers get access to our handy smartphone app – giving key business insights and turning their phone’s camera into a barcode scanner. So you can update stock levels and pick orders from the palm of your hand, and check sales from anywhere in the world.
Brightpearl doesn’t offer a smartphone app – you’ll need to be tied to your desk in order to use any of their software’s functionality.
Veeqo is designed to scale as your business grows. Our pricing plans start out at $200p/m and increase to $1,350p/m for our enterprise customers – all depending on the features you need access to, and the amount of turnover your business processes through Veeqo.
Brightpearl no longer advertise pricing on their website – but their monthly pricing far exceeds Veeqo, and also comes with an eye-watering set-up fee that needs to be paid before you start using their platform.
We’ve built Veeqo on a development language called Ruby on Rails. This is the world’s leading software language, which also powers software applications like Zendesk, AirBnb and Shopify.
Ruby allows us to be constantly rolling out new features and enhancements to the Veeqo platform. In fact, we upload a new version of the Veeqo software about once every day! You can view our live ChangeLog here.
