A cloud-based consignment inventory management solution for Auckland's fashion icon.

Back story

Tatty's is a consignment based boutique that helps customers buy and sell pre-loved designer clothing. With three Auckland stores in prime locations, and an online store, Tatty's was using a mix of off-the-shelf software and paper based systems which was holding them back.

The pandemic threw another spanner in the works with retail heavily affected by lockdowns and the stores unable to trade.  Their online store only had a very small selection of their total inventory but clearly that needed to change under New Zealand's "new normal".

The Approach

A fully integrated solution

Customers visiting Tatty's are now able to register and complete consignment drop off forms using iPads at the counter. This reduces errors and eliminates the double handling of paper forms that was occurring previously.

Inventory is then processed at the warehouse against each consignment and automatically synchronised with Shopify and Shopify POS. As items are sold the back office system is again updated in real-time.

Customers are able to login to the portal to view consignments and stock, check their account balance and organise payouts. Payout requests are then batch processed daily and uploaded to internet banking in a single file, all in a matter of minutes.
