Case study

Digitalizing the multiple brands of Trimfoot Co.

Improving customer experience by optimizing inventory flows

Trimfoot Co. is a retail conglomerate that specializes in new-born and children’s footwear. Having worked in the retail sector for over ninety years, Trimfoot, has not only achieved an illustrious past in the footwear industry, however, has established themselves as the ‘front-runner’ of infant’s and children’s footwear trade. Located in the heart of Missouri, in the United States, Trimfoot has been designing and selling high-end footwear across a broad spectrum of clientele – ranging from major department stores and mass merchandisers to niche and specialty shops alike.

As Trimfoot distributes under many notorious brands such as Baby Deer, Wee Kids and Designers Touch (to name but a few) – the need for digital expansion and diversity is significantly important, in line with their future success. Trimfoot has their own in-house marketing department and design team, as well as offices and employees in the far East, which made choosing Alumio as an integration platform (iPaaS) extremely favorable to create an IT landscape which is ready for digital growth. Through Alumio, inventory levels can be seamlessly processed and monitored over several eCommerce sites, as customer serviceability remains their number one priority.

Through connecting Trimfoot’s ERP (Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations) to WooCommerce, Trimfoot was able to modernize and automate their “IT Integration Landscape”, predict future results and track real-time performances that create data-driven decisions which accelerate the continuous growth of their business. By integrating Dynamics 365 FO to their eCommerce platform – WooCommerce, Trimfoot has in turn, eliminated data-silos and now benefits from Alumio to simply add new digital software and have all data-integrations managed within one place, so it’s able to create impactful strategies that bring them closer to their worldwide customers in an innovatively digital manner.

Powering global expansion

Where WooCommerce & Microsoft Dynamics meet

By connecting Trimfoot’s ERP (Dynamics 365) to WooCommerce, we were able to create a scalable and powerfully built eCommerce foundation within three months.

Prior to Alumio, our architecture consisted of completely siloed data that made navigating through an increasingly tangled IT landscape difficult. Thanks to integrations via Alumio, we now have a fully integrated digital architecture that scales across our markets and regions.
