Fashion Cloud presentation
How a platform is revolutionising the interactions between suppliers and retailers.
11:30 am – ‘Alte Schmiedehallen’, Pump Room
Speaker: René Schnellen
In his presentation, René Schnellen will be talking about the challenges facing fashion retail and, based on the example of Fashion Cloud, showing how brands and retailers can benefit from working with a platform. He will introduce the Fashion Cloud products (web platform for Content & Order, sales assistant app Clara for placing re-orders at the POS, and OrderWriter as a buyer app for the showroom) and explain the potential uses for retailers and suppliers.
Over 6,000 retailers and 350 brands have meanwhile joined Fashion Cloud and are working together to build a strong wholesale community. As Europe’s leading B2B platform for the fashion industry and an ‘all-in-one’ solution, Fashion Cloud makes it possible to transfer data such as delivery availabilities and product details via one central point of contact, thereby simplifying everyday tasks for brands and retailers. As well as an online platform, Fashion Cloud also includes two apps. The audience will be able to ask questions after the presentation.
