About The Brand
With the team’s continued efforts and smartly curated product range, the brand started to witness a boost in traction.

- Tracking inventory manually across different software and spreadsheets was time-consuming
- Lack of systematic management of inventory across multiple sales channels
- Difficulty in following Government compliance (mention country where the product is manufactured) due to the absence of a stable backend system
- Hard to manage warehouse operations, including batch management, bulk order management, inventory accounting, and more
