It seems like a simple business: selling mobile phone and tablet cases online. But with the explosive growth of the mobile market, family-owned Accessory Export, LLC found it’s anything but easy keeping up. Husband and wife team Will and Laura needed to evolve their processes to regain personal time for their other passions: golf and their canine friends.

The Problem

Will & Laura Empire CaseAs mobile adoption drove up product demand, Will and Laura were seeing more competition daily. They struggled to update the prices for marketplace listings in a timely fashion. And their manual fulfillment process was both inefficient and costly. As sales grew, they added employees to keep up with the manual fulfillment. They needed a way to optimize this process to add profitability.

 

While they initially utilized some technology solutions, they faced several challenges that weren’t being addressed.

  • Manual re-pricing: Mobile adoption had driven up product demand, and their competition mounted. They struggled to update marketplace-listing prices in a timely fashion. Will was literally going to the office at night trying to manually re-price items to stay competitive.
  • Inefficient fulfillment process: The manual fulfillment process used at Accessory Export was also inefficient and costly to the business. Rather than adding more and more employees to keep up with manual fulfillment, they needed to optimize this process and scale their business profitably.
