Hi, I am Jane, I launched my own clothing brand back in 2008. I started in my spare bedroom, I now supply over 300 independent clothing retailers in the UK. My manufacturing partners are based in India, China, Vietnam and Thailand. I joined importwise in early 2017.
Before we joined importwise we found the multitude of processes involved with managing our imports very difficult and time-consuming. The volume of work required to ensure this element of our business ran smoothly was immense and rarely without costly delays or misunderstandings with each or all of the parties involved. This often felt overwhelming and we longed for a more integrated solution that gave us more control and insight.
We use the importwise platform for a range of services, we book our container shipping, arrange interactive quality control inspections and also use the currency facility to pay our suppliers who are located right across south-east Asia. All of these services offer total transparency and this allows us to have a very firm grip on the tasks involved. We have saved many thousands of pounds and countless days of admin over the past year thanks to importwise.
