The company designs, develops, sources and distributes for major retailers in the UK, Europe and USA. Tudorknight work with top retailers and ecommerce brands such as; Next, Zalando, ASOS, Peacocks and many more.
The company has offices in Manchester, London, LA and Guangzhou and manages sourcing from factories based in China, Turkey, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Vietnam and the UK managing a wide range of products. As a business, Tudorknight are focussed on ensuring they offer price sensitive basics and quick lead time fashion for their customers. The company is always looking to evolve and grow and with this in mind have created fashion brands: 4th & Reckless and Fashion Union.
Once the design process is complete typically, Tudorknight will raise a Purchase Order with a factory to manufacture. Once the production is complete the customer arranges for the order(s) to be collected and delivered direct to where the items are needed. The key challenge for Tudorknight was managing the operational flow of this process to ensure complete visibility of accurate information to ensure timely delivery to their customers. During their review of ERP solutions a core requirement was the system needed to provide this level of detailed insight into their business. The overall aim for Tudorknight was to be able to deliver to their customers with confidence ensuring they have the right products in the right place at the right time.
Pawan Khosla, CEO at Tudorknight expands, ‘As a business we want control and visibility of our operations to give us the confidence to focus on what we see as key to our success – our customers. We want to spend time with our customers to ensure we give a personal service and deliver to them best sellers. The Protex solution has supported this business objective. The solution has streamlined our operational processes and provides us with vital information at our finger tips.’
He continues, ‘We operate in a price conscious sector and we want to offer the best possible design and quality whilst controlling costs. With Protex we can access costings, review demand planning, quickly and simply. We have the right information available to make the best possible decisions.’
Tudorknight have worked with Datel to implement the clothing and footwear specific ERP solution. Protex fully integrated with Sage 50 financials. This solution is hosted in the Datel Cloud.
Pawan explains, ‘Datel’s cloud offering has enabled us to access the rich functionality of a leading clothing and footwear specific business management solution. Critical to our business is our products and our customers, we did not want our team managing IT. When we implemented Protex we were a relatively new business who wanted to get control of our business processes quickly. The impact of this control in the first year was fundamental to ensuring we met our key goal to focus on good customer service whilst controlling costs.’
Martin Rath added, ‘Utilising cloud technology we have been able to provide companies such as Tudorknight with a function rich solution that is flexible for growth at an affordable, predictable, monthly price.’
Tudorknight is a forward-thinking company who has an appetite to grow. With a portfolio of brands including, 4th and Reckless and Fashion Union the business is set to continue to evolve. The Protex solution gives Tudorknight the confidence and scope to grow ensuring the business is supported throughout.
