"PVS" means "Product Availability Service". If you want to understand this service, which is unique in Europe, you have to take a closer look at the buying and selling of goods by an average bridal fashion retailer. Frida Claire recognises that the most common statistical problem of a bridal fashion retailer is the creeping loss of liquidity. With the "PVS" service, Frida Claire supports its dealers with the support of new products without direct purchase compulsion, after the first year of initial stocking and in the following years. The dealer does not have to shop blindly at a trade fair like his competitors hoping that the products will sell well in the coming season. With this purchasing policy the dealer ties up his liquid funds without knowing whether the purchased products and sizes can actually be sold in the coming season. The Frida dealer can request all new products of the coming seasons in advance and use them for fitting appointments before making a possible purchase decision for one or the other product. The Frida dealer should only make a purchase decision if he notices that he has already sold the new product in question two, three or four times and that there is further demand pressure in his region (early detection of cash cows). As long as this is not the case, the retailer can request the product from Frida Claire at his customer's fitting appointment. With this service Frida Claire prevents the loss of liquidity due to the annual trade fair purchase and the dealer always keeps a sufficiently high liquidity cover. In addition, incorrect purchases are almost completely ruled out with this concept, which means that the Frida dealer's warehousing costs and depreciation are always manageable.
Did you know
That, statistically, an average competitor bridal fashion retailer spends €38,739 per year on goods purchases at the show? Your competitor does this at a trade fair about half a year before he begins to sell the purchased goods. With a Germany-wide "wrong purchase rate" (related to the advance fair purchase) of almost 25%, on average, the loss of liquidity amounts to about 10,000, - € per year. At this point we do not ask you to multiply this figure by the coming financial years in order to recognize the advantage of Frida Claire "PVS".
