Lucy turns surplus & closeout camping equipment
Daily deals were a big deal for us when we first started doing them. We were like, wow, this could really change things - we can move product so fast! But it was super time consuming. It would slow everything down every time we were on Amazon Daily Deals or Groupon. I had one employee whose only job was to figure out what items we could put on the daily deals, and then have my warehouse guys pull it and set it aside before the sale, so we didn’t accidentally sell it somewhere else. It just wasn’t the best way of doing things.
After leaving her job, Lucy made some contacts and was able to start buying closeout and selling on daily deal and flash sale sites. She loved how daily deals made enjoying the outdoors more affordable for everyone.
Lucy is able to do even more daily deals thanks to SkuVault’s Hold feature. It allows her to place a temporary hold on SKUs. The hold removes the quantities from other marketplaces, so she doesn’t have to worry about stockouts. When the deal is over, SkuVault automatically places the quantities back on the other marketplaces.
Buying and selling inventory fast is great for cash flow, but bad for order accuracy. Now that she uses SkuVault’s Quality Control feature, her packers can scan items to check for accuracy before they’re shipped out. SkuVault shows her packers a picture of the product and lets them know that they’re sending the right item out.
Before SkuVault, Lucy had a hard time moving inventory as rapidly as she wanted. With SkuVault, she can set aside SKUs at the click of a button so she can put more inventory on daily deals sites, and move product as quickly as she wants.
