Exceed your customers’ expectations

The dynamics of the fashion industry are changing significantly and the market is expanding faster than ever. Consumers not only want to have access to the latest trends, but also enjoy a discerning shopping experience. This concerns buying as well as returning products, even to a location they have chosen themselves.

This presents fashion warehouses with a unique set of challenges. These include the increased pressure to handle rising operational costs, linked to a lack of available workforce, intensive training for operators and the need for shorter lead times. In the fashion industry, you also have to cope with unpredictable demand and seasonal trends, as well as handling a high volume of returns. The fast-moving nature of the market means that you must meet consumer expectations instantly and respond with the right product at the right time and place.

At Vanderlande, we understand the complexities of running a successful fashion business. As such, we have defined the next generation of scalable solutions – evolutions. They are designed to efficiently handle returns, flexibly cope with seasonal and fast-changing trends, and can be easily scaled up.

The next generation of scalable solutions

In order to meet any customer’s demands in full, Vanderlande has defined the next generation of scalable solutions – evolutions. They will allow these challenges to be met through an integrated portfolio of innovative systems, intelligent software and life-cycle services.
