What Expertise did Maxiim bring to Skuvue?
Maxiim introduced Drop Shipping in 2005 – working with insurance companies, shipping goods direct to their end users. In 2009, as Maxiim’s reputation for service grew, the company added Shop Direct and JD Williams to their portfolio. Maxiim’s complete integration solution enabled the company to provide drop ship solutions to Tesco, helping them to sell and distribute consumer electronics, sport and fitness products, car tech and musical instruments, both in store and online. Recently Maxiim has added ‘Click and collect’ features to the process. Their strong relationship with one of the biggest retailers in the country has continued to this day. This reputation as a dynamic and professional distributor has helped Maxiim to build commercial relationships with other retailers, including ASDA, Sainsbury’s, Freemans, Shop Direct and more.
The inspiration for the Skuvue platform came from our creative team who saw the commercial success of Maxiim, but realised there were opportunities to streamline the processes behind listing new product ranges. Frustrations rose up out of the time-consuming nature of listing products with retailers; retailers were concerned with productivity and efficiency levels; buyers wanted instant sales and a way to track them; marketing teams needed a way to view bestselling products and collaborate with suppliers during promotional events. All of these needs – and restrictions – created a desire for something better. For something smooth, flexible, agile and integrated.
What Is The Skuvue Mission?
