Betty Dain Creations
Manufacturer and importer of beauty salon supplies
Operations at a Glance
An outdated, limited system not designed for future growth and not backed by a reliable system, like QuickBooks.
A flexible, scalable, complete business management software to achieve success with production, importing, inventory, sales orders and more.
Significantly improved warehouse operations by simplifying management of a high volume of imports and manufacturing.
Decades Old & Still Growing
Betty Dain Creations is a fourth-generation family-owned and operated beauty salon supply manufacturer based in Miami, Florida. Betty Dain Creations is currently operated by third and fourth-generation members, including Alex Leebow, a great-grandson of Betty Dain’s founder.
“We manufacture beauty salon supplies, mainly apparel. So, when you go to the hair salon, these are things like the cape they put on you or the apron/vest the colorist wears – we make all sorts of that kind of apparel here in a sewing factory. We also import a lot of hair color tools from overseas – bowls, gloves, foil, caps, stuff like that,” said Alex Leebow, Business Development Manager at Betty Dain Creations.
Betty Dain Creations was founded in New York in the 1950’s by Mortimer Leebow who named the company after his late wife, “Bessie Dain.” Betty Dain started as a manufacturer of shoulder pads for women’s dresses and jackets.
When a need arose for capes for local barbershops, Mortimer saw an opportunity and easily transitioned into the beauty industry as a beauty salon supply manufacturer.
Mortimer began traveling the eastern seaboard, selling capes shop to shop, and in turn, laying the groundwork for the future success of Betty Dain Creations.
“And now we are probably one of the largest beauty salon supply manufacturers in the nation,” Alex Leebow said.
Replacing a limited system called for a flexible, scalable inventory, production & import management system
As a manufacturer and importer, Betty Dain Creations needed a modern solution that could manage production, importing, inventory, sales orders and more.
After working extensively with Mendelson Consulting researching big systems like SAP to smaller, less functional systems, Leebow landed on Acctivate.
One of the deciding factors for Leebow was Acctivate’s configurable system and the assistance provided from an Acctivate savvy consulting partner.
A software with best-in-class features to increase insight, accuracy, productivity & efficiency into day-to-day operations
Due to their high import rate, Betty Dain Creations actively uses Acctivate’s Landed Cost feature.
Inventory, Production & Import Management
With Acctivate, Betty Dain Creations has experienced excellent operational accelerations, with the added bonus of a talented customer support team.
One of Leebow’s personal favorite features is Acctivate’s custom reporting through Crystal Reports.
Sales Order Import
Betty Dain Creations, Inc. is now available in the eCommerce market and enjoys Acctivate’s import sales order feature.
20 users were quickly trained on Acctivate without any hinderances.
As far as customer service goes, Betty Dain remains pleased after several years of Acctivate use.
Infinite possibilities with Acctivate
Leebow summed up his thoughts on Acctivate in three words (mostly).
Infinity? A little elaboration helps.
