TradeStone addresses this important issue two ways: first, we have designed our MLM solutions based on Retail industry Best Practices, practices that have been refined over countless hours of actual customer use and feedback. For some retailers, however, there is a requirement for additional assistance in applying Best Practices in a rapid time-to-implementation context. For these customers we have developed our Industry Models.
TradeStone Industry Models are designed to simplify and accelerate the implementation of our award-winning MLM solution by leveraging Best Practices gathered from dozens of customer implementations and rollouts.
Best Practice, ‘out-of-the-box’ solutions, TradeStone’s Industry Models have been developed specifically for organizations wanting a low-risk approach and shorter time frame from purchase to production. Industry Models make it possible for retailers to more quickly realize the many financial and operational benefits of TradeStone MLM, taking advantage of years of in-field accumulated knowledge to significantly improve the way they currently design, source, order and deliver their private label and branded merchandise.
Our Best Practices span the value chain from vendors and import/export agents to third party inspection companies, logistics providers and banks. This enables collaboration, validation, and rapid decision-making all driven from a single environment.
Implementing an Industry Model enables retailers to leverage the same best practice processes and methods adopted by their peers and refined / validated over numerous implementations. This approach helps retailers, brand manufacturers and suppliers to avoid the challenges and risks that a fully custom approach can entail and shortens the time to realize benefits.
