Collaborative agreements with B2B businesses

“In our industry software is a necessity. It must be completely reliable, free from downtime and have complete unity with real time. fulfilmentcrowd provide this flawlessly." Martyn Lester, Co-founder/ Director

Adapting the business

ILG specialise in fulfilment and distribution across the ecommerce fashion and beauty markets in the UK and worldwide. Boasting more than 700 customers and 200 employees, with a turnover of £24 million, these hugely impressive targets couldn’t have been reached without the help of fulfilmentcrowd.

When it was founded in 1990, ILG were a global distribution company for businesses distributing printed matter financial, legal and banking sectors. Towards the turn of the millennium, the demand for these goods was on the decline. Knowing that they needed to create a new customer base, LG decided e-commerce was the way to go.

A rounded package

ILG began using fulfilmentcrowd software in 2002 and upgraded ten years later to the newer version. Mike recognises that a strength of the fulfilmentcrowd system lies in the scope of fulfilment services on offer.

Mike Stephenson, managing director of ILG, reports: “ We needed a system that would give us control and visibility over all parts of our business, whether that was in finance to automate creation of client billing, connectivity to the clients own commercial web and marketplace platforms to automate order handling and stock management or the warehouse management system providing visibility of our global warehouse operations. That is ultimately why we chose fulfilmentcrowd, no-one else ticked all those boxes, especially not to their high standards." 

“One of the reasons our relationship has withstood the test of time is because not only do fulfilmentcrowd create great end-to-end solutions they also excel in creating partnerships. Trust is absolutely paramount, not only do we implicitly trust the software, but we trust the people equally.”

A new target audience

Thanks to fulfilmentcrowd’s team of informed and dedicated experts, ILG were able to tweak the business model and tailor their resulting fulfilment preferences to suit their crowd of new customers:

"fulfilmentcrowd have helped us transition from a B2B company to a B2C company operating completely across the e-commerce, fashion and beauty Omni-channel sector.”

In the time that ILG outsourced their fulfilment through fulfilmentcrowd, they have grown exponentially from a business with 30 employees and a £4m turnover to a business of 200 employees with a turnover of more than £24m.

“One of the reasons our relationship has withstood the test of time is because not only do fulfilmentcrowd create great end-to-end solutions they also excel in creating partnerships. Trust is absolutely paramount, not only do we implicitly trust the software, but we trust the people equally.”
