Providing inventory software that gave Stokke instant visibility and control.

What we did:

Replatforming to Shopify
Multi-Environment Integration
Unleashed Inventory Management Software


The Brief

Stokke replatformed from BigCommerce to Shopify Plus platform with COG Branding. What was needed was inventory software that gave Stokke instant visibility and control, so we went to market to discover the most appropriate inventory management software that makes, manages and moves products. 

Stokke needed real-time stock management and to know what’s on hand — and where it is — at any time with perpetual inventory control. They also needed to keep stock counts quick and stock levels lean, no matter how many products they managed.

The new Stokke Website also demanded that they could buy and sell at scale with ease, and wanted to avoid stockouts, be able to raise sales orders in seconds, master margins, control stock across global supply chains, use advanced pricing strategies.

Our job was to ensure Stokke were set up for as little disruption to their BAU as possible. Integrating inventory management software for the Stokke ecommerce business successfully needed to include a robust strategy and precise planning.

The Client

Stokke AS was founded in Ålesund, on the west coast of Norway, in 1932. Stokke provides worldwide distribution of premium children’s furniture and equipment within the highchair, stroller, baby carrier, home textiles and nursery market segments.

Since 2006 Stokke has focused exclusively on premium children’s furniture and equipment within the highchair, stroller, baby carrier, home textiles and nursery market segments. Today, Stokke continues a long tradition of designing smart, sustainable products that promote bonding and healthy development for a whole new generation of children and their families.

More than forty years after the launch of Tripp Trapp®, the Stokke philosophy continues to be based on one core concept; to design products that are in the best interest of the child. All of our products are designed to encourage child development and to strengthen the bonds between parent and child. From our high, parent-facing strollers, to our award winning ergonomic baby carriers and versatile line of adjustable seating solutions, Stokke prioritizes the needs of the child above all else.

Stokke knows that it is of the utmost importance that children have a sense of connection with their loved ones to feel safe and secure. That is why a “higher is better” and “parent-facing” approach is taken toward so many of our products. These features promote better eye contact and interaction between parent and child.



The COG Branding Solution

The Stokke inventory management software integration project initially commenced with a workshop with stakeholders that combined with the website replatforming project. COG Branding needed to be certain we understood the Stokke concerns and what they would most need form this integration.

COG Branding found the most appropriate software was Unleashed, inventory management software that’s perfect for manufacturers, wholesalers and eCommerce retailers such as Stokke.

Unleashed allowed real-time inventory control and reporting. It also provided Stokke the opportunity to enjoy real-time stock visibility and maximise control, and understand their product margins and make better decisions based on real-time, accurate profit reporting.

There is also a Unleashed Sales App that allowed Stokke to make more sales and better manage their customers, products and orders while on the road.

What provided COG Branding developer support was that Unleashed provided instant data integration with platform partners, such as Shopify. As a cloud-based platform, Unleashed software creates an enterprise-level business management solution to streamline business. Synchronizing your data to the best-of-breed applications you need to run your business.
