Gloucester-based footwear distributor, Gardiner Bros, have been awarded Highly Commended in the Footwear Industry Awards in the category of “Best Use of Technology”.
“I am thrilled at the results,” says Ash Kapoor, Gardiners’ E-Commerce Manager, “Over the past two years we have had a focus on developing unique software that brings our e-tail customers and brands together to give them complete visibility. The recognition in this category is fantastic news to us and realised by the advancements in the service we as wholesalers provide.”
The new software helps Gardiners’ growing e-tail network to list products quicker and effectively, bringing more choice and innovation to the end user. Whilst Gardiners remain traditionally a wholesaler, the growing family-run firm are embracing the e-tail revolution and supports its customers on ways to sell online. Mr Kapoor continues, “The software is in continuous development to integrate with major high street retailers on e-commerce. Since we embarked on the software in late 2013, our customers selling online has grown substantially.
The wholesalers, based on the outskirts of Gloucester recently ranked 28th oldest family firm in the south west.
