ERP Case Study
Pretty Rapid Growth
An ambitious online fashion start-up in 2012, PRETTYLITTLETHING needed business management software to propel growth and bought Sage 200 to support rapid UK and international expansion.
From Little to Large
Ecommerce orders started to come in thick and fast and the existing Sage 50 accounting software could not handle the order processing or warehouse management volume.
Seamless order fulfilment day in day out, scalable to the volume of orders received, rapidly became a business priority.
Happy CX with Extra software
Sage 200 proved the optimal ERP solution, integrated with a bespoke web order software development, WebExtra, designed to automatically pull orders from the PLT website into Sage ERP. This eradicated manual data entry and guaranteed no ‘out of office hours’ delay.
WebExtra software also updates stock and product data to the PLT website. RetailExtra was implemented alongside to manage the product matrix and allow for styles and SKU’s to be controlled with a stock hierarchy.
For fast and accurate order fulfilment, FastDespatch inventory management software was integrated, designed to reduce picking, and packing errors to zero, and provide product traceability from order to delivery. For PLT, the software integration also enables wave picking and categorisation of orders for the warehouse.
To eliminate manual actions from order fulfilment processes, Metapack, one of the largest repositories of carrier labels in the UK, was integrated to Sage ERP.
Scalable, seamless, successful solution
Favoured for their enviable customer service, PLT deliver fashion fast and efficiently, expanding seamlessly into overseas markets.
On average, PLT add 120 new SKUs to the website every day and sell an average 50 dresses every minute.
At the heart of this success, is a fully integrated, scalable ERP system designed to support growth, with bespoke .net development providing a solution unique to PLTs’ existing and future requirements.
