Long established lingerie specialist
Foundations has been a long established lingerie specialist retailer in the heart of Nantwich and was taken over by Kate Hinton and Karen Flannery in April 2015. The acquisition brought new enthusiasm and ideas to the business, the new owners keen to retain the tradition of great personal service, quality products and wide choice while introducing new and exciting brands. After a store makeover and re-fit, the fresh new image was launched for Foundations at the re-launch party on 10th October 2015.

Requirement and Challenges
As well as inheriting a wide range of Brands in lingerie, swimwear and accessories Kate and Karen have introduced several new Brands. It was therefore essential to gain unbiased analysis of performance and profitability across Brands, collections and sizes. With many calls on their limited investment, a cost effective but professional EPOS and inventory solution was required – and from a company which could be trusted to deliver.
TRIMS is the perfect platform for Foundations, since it easily enables matrix-style recording of back size and cup size for lingerie and is already used by other leading lingerie multi-channel retailers. Touchretail were able to provide a solution for Foundations which combined entry level POS hardware with sophisticated inventory – and the ability to add-on the ecommerce integration when the time is right for Foundations.
