Fashion Retailer
Looking to streamline its supply chain

See how Vendor Management and Workflows improved their processes.

Client Profile

A fashion retailer offering a mix of custom and off-the-rack products needs flexible systems to manage various vendors and new product acquisition workflows.

As the company grows, there is an increasing need for new vendors and processes. However, the buying team faces challenges due to outdated systems that hinder effective communication with internal and external partners.

Key issues include:

  • Multiple vendors are involved in processes, from sourcing agents to third-party Quality Assurance to brokers, necessitating collaborative tools and specialized information access
  • Buyers need tailored access to category-specific information
  • The team is roadblocked in accessing historical data to inform current decision-making
  • There’s little visibility and control over multiple complex processes

Let's examine some key pain points and solutions to this fashion retailer's issues.

Critical company product and transaction history is trapped in spreadsheets.
