Fueling Growth for Fashion Brands and Retailers

The fashion industry is dynamic and competitive. Consumers demand more exciting and personalized products, faster than ever, but are also seeking more ethical and environmentally sustainable options while engaging with multiple channels. There is more pressure for every SKU to be profitable and on-time but it is impossible not to make mistakes when working with piles of spreadsheets and emails — errors that can impact sales and consumer happiness while potentially damaging the brand.

We’re building in the system, and simple things like automatically-generated style and fabric numbers are just clean from the get go. We were able to configure the tech packs exactly how we wanted.
