About Ala Boutique
A new destination for modest fashion
Ala Boutique launched their modest clothing boutique in the East Shopping Centre to offer finest quality fashions with unique finishing touches at everyday prices. Being Europe’s first mall dedicated to south Asian products, the East Shopping Centre in Forest Gate is the perfect location for this exciting venture.
Ala Boutique's Challenge
Well established yet with the latest tech and features
The East Shopping Centre location for Ala Boutique was secured, and it was important to have management of all stock and sales from the outset. This included barcode labelling of all items, full inventory and sales reporting for management, an easy to use POS system – and real-time integration with a new Magento website.
Having previously operated a small store in Walthamstow with a simple manual system, implementing a new EPOS system from scratch in the new Forest Gate store was a challenge. It was important to find a system which is well established yet with the latest tech and features for forward-thinking retailers.
Ala Boutique's Solution
Retail planning for the new Ala Boutique store
The TRIMS platform is the ideal solution for a start-up fashion business with plans for expansion. The ease of operation and many add-ons available to upgrade the system in line with business development mean that investment is not wasted, and the system is tailored to match the requirements of Ala Boutique. Being well versed in providing TRIMS systems to start-up businesses, Touchretail were able to help with the retail planning for the new Ala Boutique store.
