About the Client

The client is a popular fashion retailer in Dubai who specializes in ready-made ethnic wear. The renowned retailer has brought the concept of ready-made ethnic wear a household reality using traditional Indian craftsmanship, intricate embroidery and Arabic rich textures. And the brand now appeals to Indian, Arab and international consumers likewise.

Objective

Consumer was amidst expanding his stores in Dubai and Sharjah. And buyer wanted fashion ERP software that could help him manage his inventory and finance with ease.

Challenges

The client had been using two legacy systems that included a POS and a basic ERP  setup. However, he encountered several challenges with the legacy systems. These included:

  • The two systems (POS and CRM) weren’t integrated together, and these involved manual data handling and input.
  • Old POS system was inefficient and lacked basic CRM features.
  • POS also lacked the promotions module, which made retail growth challenging for the client
  • After that, POS didn’t allow store-wise cost management and couldn’t report store-wise sales and profits
  • Since POS database and Head Office database were not in sync, it was difficult to take timely decisions.
  • Payables and Purchase Orders were maintained in two separate systems resulting in difficulties in handling incoming inventories and supplier out standings.
