A digital transformation has taken hold of the retail industry, making use of technology table stakes and access to data critical. And digital business-to-business wholesale management platform businesses, like JOOR, are
initiating that transformation by creating solutions for brands and retailers that provide immediate insights for smarter, informed business decisions.
50% of brands’ style changes are caused by drops/cancellations. With JOOR’s Cancel/Replace Styles tool, you can easily cancel, replace and notify buyers of changes to ordered styles.

Using the Replace Style functionality, you can recoup potentially lost revenue by replacing cancelled styles.

Brands and retailers are similar in nature when it comes to the role upselling plays. While providing outstanding customer service and producing quality products is certainly important, it’s the sometimes-forgotten art of the upsell that remains a key priority for any and all wholesalers.
With the new "Self Serve" feature, lite brands will have the long-awaited ability to upload styles and create linesheets instantly by uploading a .csv template to your style data.
The industry’s current growth story isn’t sit-on-the-edge-of-your-seat. The macro view suggests stable or slowed growth in both emerging and mature apparel markets for 2018-2019. Global JOOR ecosystem data1, however, fills in some details--and adds some spills and thrills. In fact, for the same time period, certain developing and recovering regions show a spike in GMV.
Time with customers is precious. Focus your market efforts on the human side of your wholesale business: building orders, understanding your customers’ needs, and creating strong partnerships for now and in the future.
As the world’s industry-standard wholesale platform for fashion, beauty and home, JOOR works daily to make the entire wholesale process smoother and smarter for brands and retailers. And now, that includes our pricing model too.
