Brightpearl’s retail tech burns brightest for online candle supplier
BRISTOL, UK – 19 October 2020 – Supplies For Candles, has chosen Brightpearl to support the growth of its ecommerce websites thesoapkitchen.co.uk and suppliesforcandles.co.uk and to improve upon the delivery speed and efficiency of its home fragrance and cosmetic supplies to the firm’s widening customer base across the UK and further afield.
With Brightpearl in place, the quality candle supplier now has access to an all-in-one and scalable digital operations platform that can meet the needs of its rapid ecommerce growth and expansion plans – lighting the way for shoppers across UK and Europe to buy and receive candle supplies lightning quick.
Having launched in 2016, Supplies For Candles has quickly grown to become one of the largest candle supply companies in Europe, with the widest range of complex designer fragrances.
Looking to blow out the candle on the competition, the firm turned to Brightpearl to address some of its growing pains and support its ambitious growth plans. The business now replaces its disparate systems and manual workarounds with a truly unified platform that provides a complete and real-time view over its entire business alongside a user-friendly and intuitive single source of truth for all inventory, accounting, reporting and sales.
Alongside the firm’s core requirements, the advanced retail functionality and world class integrations that come pre-built with Brightpearl made it the obvious choice to support the firm’s next stage of growth, whilst keeping up with demand and supporting multichannel selling across various ecommerce channels.
“It was a simple and easy transition implementing Brightpearl for the second time”, said Supplies for Candles owner, Nicky Story. “The Magento 2 integration worked seamlessly and helped reduce our overall implementation costs.”
With Brightpearl now automating its entire retail operation, Supplies For Candles will be spending less time on cumbersome manual tasks and can instead focus on serving its customers faster and more seamlessly, across channels.
“With a growing range of products, increasing demand and with multiple channels to serve, Supplies for Candles needed a scalable digital operations platform that removed its day-to-day operational headaches and allowed the firm to continue on its current strong growth trajectory”, says Justin Press, SVP of Customer Success at Brightpearl. “With such a huge demand for its products and a bright future ahead, we’re delighted to be the natural choice for this rapidly expanding brand.”
