Making a Difference for Cyclists
BikeFit, a professional bike fitting company®, established in 1995, produces bicycle fitting tools and products that help alleviate physical discomforts active cyclists and triathletes regularly face. The addition of BikeFit products like Cleat Wedges, Leg Length Shims, and Pedal Spacers provide cyclists with more comfort and improved rides.
“Initially the company was created to help people eliminate discomfort on their bicycles. Cyclists were experiencing significant injuries and leaving cycling altogether. Our founder created products to help people customize their asymmetrical bodies to symmetrical bikes to alleviate pain and increase power and efficiency,” Damon Wyatt, Operations Manager said.
BikeFit is not only a creator, but an educator. BikeFit offers educational print, online courses, and hands-on seminars about the philosophy and best practices of bike fitting to private businesses and bike shops.
Years of product development and knowledge have made BikeFit a globally used product by cyclists and triathletes around the world, including an Olympic Gold medalist.
Lacking in visibility and no central system in place meant it was time for an inventory and business management solution
When Damon came into BikeFit it was a very successful, yet small company and he found himself not only in a sales position, but also marketing, administration, customer service and inventory.
Due to a lack of software to manage inventory and the business, BikeFit suffered from a lack of visibility and insight into their operations. Lacking a true daily reading of operations only hindered performance and efficiency. With a 3PL warehouse in the mix, monitoring eCommerce orders and tracking fulfillment proved exceedingly difficult. For BikeFit and Damon, finding software to streamline inventory and business operations was becoming a necessity.
From a visibility standpoint, before Acctivate, BikeFit was essentially blind in their operations.
When it came to inventory, lack of a system for managing and tracking inventory and viewing availability was only hurting BikeFit.
A software with top-of-the-line features to enhance operations, boost efficiency, provide visibility, and lend insight into daily operations
With the help of an Acctivate Onboarding Specialist, Lauren Stine, BikeFit was able to quickly get up and running with Acctivate.
When Acctivate was fully implemented at BikeFit, they made the transition to support services.
Since the implementation of Acctivate, BikeFit has experienced a massive gain in control and efficiency.
Now BikeFit’s warehouse is equipped to manage inventory properly, lending Damon a huge hand with maintaining the right inventory loads with less error.
BikeFit’s products are sold and shipped worldwide. Before Acctivate, determining the true cost of a shipped good, involved many unnecessary steps.
The Landed Cost module easily accounts for all potential charges in shipping and handling, making financials accurate and reliable.
Many small businesses struggle with eCommerce order management. But with Acctivate, the web store is scheduled to automatically sync at a user’s time intervals of choice. The coordination between Acctivate and web store allows for streamlined, accurate order management and fulfillment.
Order Manager, Business Alerts & Dashboard
Visuals are important and very useful, especially when operating a small business. With the help of Acctivate’s Dashboard, Order Manager, and Business Alerts, Damon is able to see everything on the agenda in detail at the beginning of the day.
10,000 times the efficiency and better for it
Before Acctivate, BikeFit was hindered by disjointed processes and no overall system in place. But with Acctivate, they’ve experienced a shift in efficiency, visibility, accuracy, and insight into their daily operations, allowing for handling present tasks and better forecasts.
