TRADEGECKO CUSTOMER SUCCESS STORY - Wanderer Bracelets
Wanderer Bracelets sells hand-made, locally sourced bracelets from Bali. Founder Ben Katzaman loves that TradeGecko allows him to keep his operational team lean and create more jobs for the skilled hands of Balinese carvers.
Reasons Why Wanderer Bracelet Loves TradeGecko:
Cloud based software ensures the business can be managed from anywhere at anytime.
Integrations with Xero, Shopify, Shipstation and Aftership.
With operations and employees on two continents, TradeGecko is a centralized platform for running the business.
When Ben Katzaman came across a group of skilled carvers in Bali, he saw an opportunity to bring their beautiful works of art into the international market, and create more jobs for local artisans. He formed Wanderer Bracelets with that main goal in mind.
Inventory for Wanderer Bracelets is produced in Bali and sold globally. With 240 SKUs, employees in Bali, the USA and the Philippines, and customers all over the world, it is a truly international supply chain.
“Because of the opportunity to use TradeGecko, 15 artisans have full-time jobs and many more have work. You’re enabling what could never happen before - the underdog can now compete with the big guys.”
Using TradeGecko, Wanderer Bracelets can easily coordinate between international offices. The lead carver in Bali controls production and inventory levels, while an employee in Florida receives the products and deals with purchase orders. The rest of operations such as accounting, marketing and forecasting are managed through TradeGecko and its integrations.
For the future, Wanderer Bracelets is ready to keep on growing with TradeGecko at its side. Its expansion is driven by the goal of creating more jobs for local craftsmen in Bali.
