Fashion Homeware Brand Moves to the Cloud to Support Rapid Growth and Regional Expansion
NEXT READY BUSINESS TOUR 2017, London—16 October 2017—Oracle NetSuite, one of the world’s leading providers of cloud-based financials / ERP, HR, Professional Services Automation (PSA) and omnichannel commerce software suites, announced today that London-based home fashion label, Buster + Punch, has chosen NetSuite OneWorld as the foundation to support its growth beyond Western Europe. With a B2C ecommerce website, showroom in London, retail store in Stockholm and over 71 stockists selling its select products across 27 countries, the company was ready for its next move to build a physical presence in the United States. With NetSuite OneWorld, Buster + Punch will be able to standardise, streamline and scale its operations across its multichannel business within one unified cloud solution to support this continued global growth.
“Our business has gained massive popularity over the last couple of years. In order to keep up and continue to deliver the premium service and products our customers expect, we realised our back-end systems needed a revamp,” said Martin Preen, CEO, Buster + Punch. “NetSuite’s capabilities have the ability to make us smarter. With it, we will be able to manage our operations on a single platform, all while combining data from across our manufacturing plants in Asia, physical locations in Sweden and the UK, and from retail channels across the world, to get the insights we need to keep driving Buster + Punch forward with certainty.”
Architect and industrial designer, Massimo ‘Buster’ Minale, launched Buster + Punch in an East London garage in 2013. In a matter of two years, the company was selling its unique items to customers across 84 countries. Inspired by London’s distinctive fashion, music and sub-culture scenes, the company has quickly grown to create a wide range of products from lighting and home hardware to custom motorcycles, collaborating with street artists, bike builders, musicians and fashion designers. Those collaborations include a contemporary version of the Edison light bulb created with Rolls Royce, new packaging with renowned British design firm ILOVEDUST and a steel candle holder for chef Tom Seller’s FAT CANDLE dish, a beef fat candle created in homage to Seller’s father who saved the fat and juices from family lunches to eat later with bread.
Buster + Punch selected NetSuite OneWorld to provide it with a real-time view across its operations, from its manufacturing facilities and warehouses, to its supply chain and customer service. This will allow it to align its business across all markets and get products to customers faster and at a lower cost, all while maintaining the high product quality and service that have shaped its success to date.
With visibility across its entire global operation, Buster + Punch will have the ability to more precisely forecast product demand and consequently scale its manufacturing and delivery processes to prevent supply bottlenecks. Buster + Punch will also be able to use the data from the NetSuite OneWorld platform to successfully roll-out new product lines.
NetSuite OneWorld supports 190 currencies, more than 20 languages, automated tax calculation and reporting in more than 100 countries, and customer transactions in more than 200 countries. Further, to help today’s B2B and B2C businesses with omnichannel commerce, NetSuite OneWorld delivers commerce-ready capabilities that can help both B2B and B2C commerce businesses to move from siloed online, in-store and phone consumer shopping channels to an integrated commerce solution, connecting ecommerce and in-store POS to order management, inventory, merchandising, marketing, financials and customer service, while delivering a seamless brand experience and exceeding customer expectations.
