Leading boxing equipment supplier, Boxfit UK, has swapped out an ineffective on-premise ERP for the one-two punch of Brightpearl and BigCommerce as it seeks to implement a more scalable, agile and future-proofed solution.

Brightpearl LogoFounded in 2006, Boxfit UK are one of the UK’s largest boxing equipment suppliers, with a 24/7 online shop, now powered by BigCommece, plus two newly refurbished and extensive stores.

The move comes at a critical juncture for online retail in the wake of Covid-19 and Brightpearl has been questioning what commerce will look like post-Covid in order to arm their clients with the necessary tools and solutions.

The team at Boxfit knew that any future business growth would be stunted by its current provider. Migrating to BigCommerce meant it was also important they had a knockout back office solution that was able to integrate quickly and easily with their webstore. Brightpearl’s world-beating suite of integrations, retail specialism and advanced fulfilment features left other contenders out for the count, as well as Brightpearl being among the top scaleups in the region.

Benefitting from digital transformation

The firm now joins an extensive family of global brands selecting Brightpearl and BigCommerce to benefit from an integrated solution that supports the seamless management of a growing multi-location operation.

With Brightpearl in place, Boxfit UK now has access to a scalable and unified Digital Operations Platform that can meet the needs of its rapid e-commerce growth and acts as a centralised source of truth to speed up decision making and grant total visibility and control over complex multichannel inventory and order management.

In addition to great integration with its BigCommerce webstore, the platform also addresses the firm’s key considerations around scalability, automated fulfilment, real-time data insights,  centralized inventory and order management.

Brightpearl’s automation engine will also eliminate the brand’s time-consuming manual processes in a single stroke – as well as turbocharging the speed by which the company gets its items out of the door and into the hands of boxing enthusiasts training at all levels of the sport.

“Brightpearl stood out as being the only system that offered the flexibility and scalability, as well the ability to automate workflows whilst integrating quickly with our online and offline sales channels”, says Ken Mills Sales Manager at BoxFit UK.

“We’re delighted to be powering Boxfit UK,” says Justin Press, SVP Customer Success at Brightpearl. “The team was looking for a scalable solution with world class integrations, including to their ecommerce platform. Our strong background of fuelling growth with outstanding multichannel support in addition to our full suite of built-for-retail functionality and popular BigCommerce integration meant we were tailor-made to support the business in going the championship distance to serve its customers.

“The firm’s difficulties with order management, real time insights and automation are ones we’ve heard from retailers time and again, especially when in stages of rapid growth. Brightpearl offers the perfect tool for streamlining retail operations so Boxfit UK can get back to focussing on growth, and doing so painlessly.”
