Perch(ed) is a mobile business-to-business (B2B) platform that leverages a game-changing approach to creating purchase orders (PO's). Over 50% of mobile phone owners have a smartphone so we decided to empower the smartphone to make a smart PO. We've studied the trade shows and showroom appointment process and developed a re-design process for writing orders, whereas the other paperless order solutions on the market have simply made an inefficient process digital. Roughly 25-50% of a showroom appointment can be spent writing up the order, totaling the quantities and costs. With perch(ed), this can be done in just a few clicks on an app.
The current wholesale apparel market relies heavily on manual ordering processes and often depends on buyers seeing and feeling a product prior to purchase. Year-over-year trade shows like MAGIC Marketplace, the largest apparel trade show in the U.S., continue to grow as more and more retail buyers and apparel sales reps see the value in doing business in-person. At perch(ed), we believe in enhancing the face-to-face buying experience in the business-to-business marketplace.
