LIMs is a home and office goods retailer selling from a physical store. TradeGecko takes care of the operations and allows the Lims to focus on sourcing.
Reasons why LIMs loves TradeGecko:
It allows for immediate inventory updates.
It makes eCommerce possible.
It integrates seamlessly with Shopify.
I go out to the market in places like Vietnam, source the products I like, update the inventory details, and create the purchase orders - all on the spot using TradeGecko!
LIMs specializes in unique home and workplace goods sourced from all over Asia, but the Lims have to head overseas every other month to search for new additions to their eclectic collection.
Prior to using TradeGecko, the Lims had to go to Vietnam to source for products,, update inventory manually, and then pick up the containers with the products later. On top of that, they had a team of eight to manage the server and the warehouse.
Now, with TradeGecko, the Lims get all their stock up on TradeGecko by themselves, and the warehouse is handled by only two staff members. Now, when they find something they like, all they need to do is snap pictures of new products, and immediately add new stock to their inventory using their smart phone.
As their company grows, the Lims are considering opening up an online store. TradeGecko, with its Shopify and Shopify POS integrations can sync all the products to one place, eliminating the need to set aside inventory for an online store. LIMs has successfully managed a period of transition in its business, all while staying true to its history and customer expectations. TradeGecko is proud to have facilitated the expansion process.
