HOUSTON – August 23, 2019 – Gecko Jewellery has partnered with DiCentral, a leading global provider of B2Bi Managed Services to streamline their ordering processes, and position the company for growth into additional markets.
Since 1992, UK-based Gecko Jewellery (https://www.geckojewellery.com) has supplied fine jewelry to the UK, Ireland and other parts of Europe. The company provides high-quality goods to independent retailers, big chains, department stores, as well as dropship fulfillment for online customers.
Prior to implementing EDI, the company received most orders through website forms, with order information then transmitted via email to fulfillment staff. As Gecko Jewellery looked to expand its line to American retailer Lord & Taylor, the renowned luxury retailer requested that Gecko automate communications and ordering processes through EDI implementation.
“Gecko Jewellery is entirely focused on delivering what the retailer most needs from their suppliers; speedy and efficient service. DiCentral supports this goal by simplifying order fulfillment, which is a huge advantage when dealing with so many different systems across our customers,” said Massimo Lucchesi, international sales manager at Gecko.
Lucchesi leads a small team that is responsible for processing orders across the globe by using a number of different fulfillment systems. Although the company is a relatively new DiCentral customer, Lucchesi is already impressed with DiCentral’s EDI solution.
“With other EDI systems, the onboarding program was a mess, with long, complicated testing processes,” noted Lucchesi. “DiCentral was easy to set up. Everything was very clear, which makes it very likely we will use them in the future for other companies.”
With DiCentral’s streamlining of the Lord & Taylor order fulfillment process, Lucchesi and his team can now spend their time continuing to grow their jewelry line throughout the world. The ease of use and efficiency of DiCentral’s platform has prompted the company to make plans to expand the system to additional luxury retailers to further their growth in the fine jewelry market.
