Until BizSlate, small business systems for footwear and apparel manufacturers and distributors, while affordable, were limited to simple tasks and typically caused more manual work-arounds than they were worth. Fashion businesses need to track products by custom attributes such as color and size, maintain relationships between size runs, pre-packs, and open stock inventory, and effectively manage pre-stocking and made-to-order business models. As your business grows, so do the demands to keep up, including supplier quality management, daily production measurement, in short, navigating the complexity of an omni-channel market such as multiple packing and pricing options per customer, and multiple identifiers (e.g. UPCs, GTINs) per product. Any delay or misstep will cost you customers, or even your business. Today’s promise of the next hot season can quickly become a brand of the past if your order and inventory systems interfere with an accurate and efficient supply chain.
