Festival Clothing is the wholesaler you turn to when you want to sell unique and beautiful festival and beach wear type pieces. Beginning as a retailer in 1984, husband and wife team Deb Watts and Brett Hobdell turned into a strictly wholesale business 8 years ago. After they spent a lot of time looking for the right suppliers to give them the sizes and types of clothing they need, they decided to take production into their own hands.
They now manage around 2000 SKUs, spread across 3 warehouses, one in Australia, one in India and one in Indonesia, where they also have manufacturing hubs. They have 3 wholesale agents around Australia and sell to multiple boutique and independent retailers throughout the country.
Festival Clothing was using an accounting and inventory management system for many years, but as the business grew, the system became slower and slower. Festival Clothing switched to Xero for accounting and found TradeGecko after a lot of market research for an ideal solution.
TradeGecko could do all the different things that I needed to do with clothing. At the time I started working with them, they were an emerging company, they were so helpful, they even developed specialised reports for me. Above all, I like that TradeGecko is growing as our business is growing - that’s really good.
Festival Clothing says they’ve seen a great ROI in terms of time saved and inventory management problems prevented. They also especially find value in the reporting and intelligence features that TradeGecko offers, helping them manage inventory, and keeping backorders organized.
