Creatnet Services installs ERP
Geared up for consistent growth of 25%
Some Indian companies are doing good even in this difficult scenario and one of them is Noida-based Creatnet Services. The 21-year-old company which is sourcing for design-driven brands grew 25 per cent last year and is further expecting the same growth over the next few years. Gearing up for this growth target, the organization recently installed an ERP system and is planning to explore the European market again.
“We deal in very high price products with an average FOB of around US $ 25. So, for us getting business is comparatively less difficult but its execution is more challenging. We have nearly 200 styles at one time, so to ease the overall process and to improve our efficiency, we have installed a customized ERP,” shared Garima Bhat, Co-founder of the company who is also a management graduate from the first batch of Production Management from National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT).
Currently having clients (mostly brands) in US and Australia, Creatnet Services is now again approaching Europe. Earlier it had some clients there but due to the uncertainties in Europe, including Brexit and other allied reasons, the company could not continue business in the region. But now that things are settled; the process to serve European customers has again been initiated. Some European brands are in touch with the company, mostly those that strongly admire and need India’s strengths. Talking about Creatnet’s future planning, Garima informed that her goal for the next 2-3 years is to add top brands of Australia, which will support her company to continue its growth of 25 per cent year-on-year. “We are targeting 5-6 Australian brands and hopefully we will be able to add them in our client portfolio,” shared Garima who is working with 6 vendors in India on a regular basis.
Handling a team of nearly 100 plus people, Garima is very keen to uplift the overall life of workers, the sampling staff and take interesting initiatives for them, be it their training, engagement or motivation. Sustainable efforts are also very much on the agenda for the future.
As a first seed of Green initiative by the company, team Creatnet Services planted a rooftop garden at the office. Many craftsmen working with the company are incredible farmers as well!
The company even made the boxes out of bamboo and used recycled materials to protect the plants from the elements.
