Blue Bungalow x Style Arcade Case Study
Effective fashion buying
for eCommerce growth
How Blue Bungalow was able to grow their sales by making informed buying decisions and FAST
To easily identify opportunities for growth in both category and sizing within the business, and confidently make data-driven product decisions
• Tracking accurate performance of fast moving styles is both time consuming for the team and challenging in Excel
• As a high demand brand Blue Bungalow was selling out of their best sellers in just one week and often in days
• The performance of these styles was so fast they needed software to analyse the ideal purchase quantities in order to capitalise on this high demand
• The lack of visuals to support the text attributes slowed decision making and weakened the creative element
Buying with confidence
• By using Style Arcade, Blue Bungalow was easily able to identify a key opportunity to increase the units purchased by +16% in their highest demand category
• By knowing exactly which sizes these additional purchase units should be ordered in, Blue Bungalow aligned their customer's sizing demand perfectly to their ordering
• Utilising Style Arcade to easily increase their order quantities and buy with confidence, knowing that the sales opportunity had been accurately quantified
Identify category opportunities
