Clothing Distribution

Clothing distribution has multiple complexities and dependencies that must be addressed to ensure visibility and control.

Running a Clothing Distribution company is difficult without software that suits the industry.  The suppliers have a larger range than you can carry so you need to get customer seasonal orders before committing to items in a range.  Once you commit to a range you then need to contact all those customers who wanted items that you no longer plan to range and cross sell them into other items.  Customers have complex ordering – some want changes like their own brand, some want unique colour options, some want to schedule multiple deliveries 6 months in advance, some want a daily update of what you have available and reserved for them and expect you to ship direct to their customer (eg IKONIC).  The end of the season leads to stock limitations and the requirement to move slow stock at discounted prices.  There is product returns, Supplier Promotions, Supplier Claims and a very dynamic fashion market to work in – so industry specific software is a must.
