Nowadays 70% of fashion brands have enrolled some sort of online solution to enable retailers to restock their shop inventory. This is often a basic scenario focussed on digital order intake for replenishment. What does your setup look like and are you getting enough out of your current solution? Does it have a wow effect on your customers? Does it make life easy for your customers? Is it smart? Does it communicate your brand story? And is it helping you and your team innovate the way you do business?
A good digital order intake process is the first step in the digital transformation of your wholesale channel. At Colect we started with our Ipad app specialized in digital order intake but slowly added more digital storytelling features like the digital lookbook, shop-the-look and ultimately our new Digital Showroom product.
We see this development towards digital storytelling also emerge in our B2B shop solution. On top of digital order intake our B2B shop is embracing more digital storytelling functionality like digital lookbooks .This approach delivers a better buying experience for your B2B customers and communicates your brand story on a higher level. Using modern, intuitive and visual orientated user interfaces, reps and customers enjoy a B2C-like selling and buying experience.
We believe there is still lots of room for improving the digital order intake process. We believe a data driven approach will take the digital order process to the next level. Make your ordering process smarter and more efficient using insights on historical orders, buying behaviour to improve order optimisation, repeat purchases, price optimisation and sell-through.
At Colect we are commited to innovate our wholesales solutions. We want to lead the way in digital sales innovation so your team doesn’t have to.
