TRIMIT Fashion And Sisters Point – Fashion On Short Notice
The Danish fashion house, Sisters Point, has a unique business model that revolves around keeping up with the latest trending clothing fashions, and selling to shops at short notice.
"With short delivery time on styles that are selling here and now, both our business, and the shops, need to meet demand fast. This requires an IT solution that is transparent and offers an overview at any given time, and that’s exactly what TRIMIT Fashion gives us."
With 15-20 new items every week, Sisters Point has to move fast, and that demands sharp inventory management, an effective solution for sales people and agents, and a good overview, as they go about their everyday work. With this in mind, Sisters Point has been using TRIMIT Fashion for the last three years – a solution that sharpens their competitive edge.
Sisters Point has designed clothes for teenagers and women aged 15-25 since 1994. They send new designs to the market every week, and take orders on a daily basis, all of which demand a good overview of everything – from inventory status to order flow. This is why the company chose TRIMIT Fashion, a Microsoft Dynamics NAV-based solution, for the fashion branch. The solution supports and benefits their business in many ways.
Optimized For The Best Possible Results
According to Nicolai Olsen of Sisters Point, one of the key benefits of TRIMIT Fashion is that it helps shops to optimize their cash flow.
“With short delivery time on styles that are selling here and now, both our business, and the shops, need to meet demand fast. This requires an IT solution that is transparent and offers an overview at any given time, and that’s exactly what TRIMIT Fashion gives us,” Olsen says.
Olsen says that this gives them a big advantage compared to the competition. “Others in the industry see their results only at the end of the season. They lose the opportunity to adapt their offering to actual demands in the course of the year. We want to make sure that our business is always optimized for the best possible results,” he says.
Precise Order Handling And A Fast Workflow
TRIMIT Fashion also helps Sisters Point make sure of the quality of the orders. All the items have bar codes, which are scanned during packing, so that they match the orders. This ensures that orders are packed and invoiced correctly the first time around – something that is critical for the fast deliveries that are an integral part of their brand’s offering.
The fast response to new styles means that popular items are sold out quickly. But TRIMIT Sales Agent (which is part of the TRIMIT Fashion package) makes sure that sales people and agents make agreements for popular products directly with the shops – with no risk of offering sold-out goods. In this way, sales are optimized.
“With TRIMT Sales Agent, our sales people and agents always have access to up-to-date inventory status,” Olsen says. “The inventory status continuously changes, and everyone gets updated if an item is sold out. If an item isn’t sold within a couple of weeks, we have the opportunity to respond to this. This precise overview of stock is invaluable to us. It improves our customer service, so we can always answer customers quickly and accurately. At the same time, it allows us to sell more items because we can easily see which items we need to focus on here and now."
TRIMIT Fashion Grows With Their Business
Earlier, Sisters Point had a customized NAV solution, but, when their support disappeared, they went looking for a standard solution. One reason that TRIMIT Fashion was chosen was that it is based on the best practices from the fashion industry.
Olsen says that they chose TRIMIT Fashion because the solution is developed in collaboration with fashion houses, and it really addresses industry needs. Plus, it is scalable.
“We can develop and expand our business as needed, without being overly concerned about IT because TRIMIT Fashion follows our growth,” Olsen says.
