Synergy takes Girly Chic to Cyber Chic.

Houston based children's wear company, Greggy Girl®, known for their personality defining clothing, is announcing yet another perk for their boutique customers. This news follows the most recent launch of the Greggy Girl® Fall/Winter 2007 collection, when the Greggy Girl sales staff discovered after the first show of the season, that business as they knew it, had changed forever with the help of "paperless tradeshow solution" provider, Groupe BDM™ of Montreal, Canada.

Greggy Girl® is proud to announce the implementation of "The Assistant™" by Groupe BDM™. "This software was designed to change the face of the fashion and gift industry, and it's doing just that", says Stéphane Blanchet, co-founder of the seasoned company.

"It was incredible to me that from the very first show we used the system, we cut our customers' wait time in half, allowing us to service more customers in less time. The results keep getting better as it continues to successfully revolutionize our sales process. They get it. Groupe BDM™ knows what the manufacturer needs" says Charlene May, founder and designer of Greggy Girl®.

Aside from shortening the buyers time in the showroom and trade booths, additional perks for the buyers include:

  •     The use of a mobile device during the sales process vs. handwritten orders. This enables the buyers to shop freely by touching and feeling the merchandise which allows them to focus on the collection instead of paperwork.
  •     The implementation of the Greggy Girl® electronic catalog that buyers can log into for reviewing, changing or placing new orders.
  •     The buyer leaves with a clean and totaled order with photos attached of each purchased style.
