When a side gig turns into a full-time job
Stefanie Kapp exaggerated slightly when she called her company just "a bit of extra income". But that was her original plan when she first founded styleBREAKER along with two other business partners. No one anticipated that the number of employees would grow from 3 to 28 in just a few years. Or that their basement storage room would be replaced by a large warehouse. styleBREAKER started out in 2012 by selling trendy accessories in their online store. But soon the company began following a multi-channel strategy and offering products on Amazon and eBay too. In the beginning, they didn't spend much time looking for a software solution. Instead, they meticulously created invoices on their home computer after a long day's work. But the number of orders kept increasing and soon the work load was too much to handle. They needed a solution.
Mit plentymarkets gewachsen
When Stefanie Kapp started using plentymarkets, she saw many different possibilities for automating the business processes in her office and her warehouse. It didn't take long for styleBREAKER to begin improving their most tedious day-to-day tasks - it was a real time-saver! styleBREAKER also profits from the fact that plentymarkets includes a large number of interfaces to major online marketplaces. They no longer have to manage each sales channel separately. Instead, they can control everything from one central location - even their international sales.
Thanks to plentymarkets, styleBREAKER was able to focus on expanding their business.
Nowadays, we've got about 2700 m² of storage space in two different warehouses. We've been able to simplify our day-to-day tasks with the help of processes for booking incoming items, single-order picking, multi-order picking, packing, etc.
