We had a chat with Louisa Currie about how partner Redhead Digital and Unleashed work together.
Could you tell us about your business? How did you start it?
I have a background in marketing, management and ecommerce, launching an online retail site in 2008. After selling that business in 2014 I founded my own digital agency.
Who are your clients?
I have both B2B and B2C customers that include manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers.
And how did you find Unleashed?
Way back in 2010 I looked to implement the system within my own business. Although still in it’s early days I could see the potential as a powerful but affordable system for many NZ businesses.
Why do you think Inventory Management is important?
Many businesses live or die on how well they manage their stock. It’s imperative you accurate, up to date information available on which to base your decisions on.
What are the challenges your customers are facing with Inventory Management?
Lack of accurate costing, inability to get real time data and often they have more than one system they need to keep updated (eg, none of their current systems sync together).
How did you find the partner setup with Unleashed?
They are awesome. They don’t rest on their laurels and are constantly striving to create an even better solution.
How has Unleashed helped your customers grow?
For my ecommerce customers, the integration saves them time. Prior to moving to Unleashed they were manually updating their stock. Not only did it take forever, it meant there system was almost always out of date.
How do you find the integration between Unleashed and other softwares?
As a systems specialist, the ability to integrate into other software so easily, makes Unleashed a handy weapon to have in your arsenal!
Some customers avoid changes but they may be missing out on getting more efficiency. What do you say about that?
Change can be painful but it doesn’t have to be. Invest in your planning and set-up properly and the change can be seamless. The rewards you will see in the business will make you wonder why you didn’t do it sooner.
Why do you recommend Unleashed?
Simple, powerful inventory management software that suits a variety of businesses.
Awesome! And is there something your business is particularly proud of?
My ultimate goal is to add real and measurable value to the clients’ business and there’s a lot I like about what I do:
- There are so many amazing systems within reach now for small businesses and I really enjoy working with the client to identify their true goals and requirements for their specific business and then matching the solution to the business (not the other way around!).
- Implementation is my happy place. I love getting my hands dirty creating websites and setting up and trouble-shooting integrations that actually *reduce* work for a client.
How does the future look for your business?
Redhead Digital can build a stand-alone website or integrate it with your inventory, accounting, email marketing or booking systems.
We can help you with implementation and training for:
Unleashed, Xero, WordPress, Squarespace, Shopify, Adwords, SEO, Analytics, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Mailchimp, Mad Mimi, overall strategy and consulting
and plenty more!
And finally, what do you enjoy about working with us?
The support is great and their people love what they do.
