For small business owners, smart inventory management is crucial for reducing storage costs and keeping track of all stock, orders, and customers. TradeGecko’s enterprise-level order management system empowers SMEs to manage business operations in the one place – increasing efficiency and profitability.
The TradeGecko story
In 2012, brothers Cameron and Bradley Priest, along with Carl Thompson, saw the need for a more advanced online inventory management solution after Carl had experienced first-hand the inventory headaches that come with running an online store. To bring their vision to life, the three entrepreneurs moved to Singapore and joined JFDI – a reputable technology accelerator – where the beginnings of TradeGecko were founded.
Since its inception, TradeGecko has grown to be a market leader in inventory management, and now serves customers in over 100 countries. By marrying simplicity, efficiency, and control, TradeGecko is helping clients build thriving businesses all over the globe.
An inventory management solution for the future
While businesses used to rely on inefficient methods such as ledgers and spreadsheets to keep track of their stock, inventory management today is a completely different story. TradeGecko keeps things simple and streamlined, enabling eCommerce retailers and wholesalers to save time and work smarter by accessing enterprise-level tools.
The platform combines inventory management operations, essential business applications, and online commerce – freeing up business owners to work on the bigger picture and grow their business well into the future.
What are the benefits of using TradeGecko?
TradeGecko is ideal for primarily online businesses looking to scale up sustainably. The software is specifically designed to help streamline inventory management processes and business operations and can be seamlessly integrated with eCommerce operations such as Woocommerce, Xero, and Shopify.
For wholesalers, TradeGecko’s B2B eCommerce system capabilities allow merchants to create a private online store for wholesale customers. The store can be customized to ensure brand consistency, and products can be published easily at any time, allowing customers to purchase from you 24/7.
On-the-go inventory and order management is also easily handled using TradeGecko mobile – TradeGecko’s inventory management app for iPhone and iPad. A customer’s entire product catalog is available via the app, enabling them to sell anywhere, at any time. The app also doubles as a customer relationship management (CRM) system, meaning customers can reach contacts directly through the app.
E-commerce and inventory management can be challenging for even the most well-established businesses. That’s why TradeGecko’s Sales and Success team is also on hand to help customers get up and running on the platform as soon as possible, and provide support whenever it’s needed.
New and upcoming developments for TradeGecko and its customers
TradeGecko’s latest development, TradeGecko Payments, has recently been rolled out to the US, UK, Australia, and Singapore, and will be made available to other countries in the coming months. The B2B payments gateway gives wholesalers better operational control of their cash flow from a single dashboard that summarizes their account balance, payments and payouts history. TradeGecko invoices also come with a “Pay Invoice” function, making payments easy. Advanced functionality is also in the works, so wholesale merchants should stay tuned for further developments.
Looking forward, TradeGecko’s vision is clear: helping new and existing customers grow their online businesses by offering them access to the best order management tools on the market, and forming a strong partnership as they embark on their entrepreneurial journey.
