Papini has been OrderWise users since 2005, and today are a leading supplier of quality trade clothing.
They stock a vast range of garments within their bonded warehouse and pride themselves on their next day deliveries. Debs Howse, a Director at Papini, took time out of her busy schedule to explain how they’ve used OrderWise to achieve stress-free processes and easily manage orders from warehouse to shipment.
Solo International Limited, the parent company of Papini, was founded in 1996 by Gary and Heather Fisher. After 30 years of supplying garments to Marks & Spencer, Gary’s vision was to set up a high quality label of clothing suitable for corporate, promotional, school and work wear to supply to trade. They ran the business hands-on, travelling to China, importing, creating opportunities and generating sales. Their experience and hard work paid off and Papini gradually grew in size. Today, Papini employs a 12 strong, qualified and dedicated team. In fact, the Papini brand name is better known than Solo.
Prior to implementing OrderWise, Papini were facing a number of issues causing them to look into new business management systems.
“At that time, we were using a system which wasn’t very ‘user friendly’ and the time taken to complete tasks such as printing orders and posting invoices was very long winded. As all of Papini’s orders are received and dispatched the same day ‘time is of the essence’. Papini stock a wide range of garments including 5 different style of polos, a deluxe weight contrast hoodie, sweatshirts, fleeces & jackets, all from stock held in their own bonded warehouse.”
