Below is our recent interview with Suuchi Ramesh, CEO & Founder at Suuchi:
Q: Can you give our readers a brief overview of what Suuchi is?
A: Suuchi is a next-gen supply chain solution for apparel brands and retailers. Through our suite of solutions, we can assist companies in digitizing their supply chain and provide offerings for design, production, sourcing, and drop shipping. Each step is tracked through our software, the Suuchi GRID to create end-to-end visibility.
Q: I recently read that you had announced some major partnerships with brands such as Bazzle Baby. Can you tell us more about how you are helping these larger brands and retailers?
A: We are thrilled to partner with brands and retailers like Bazzle Baby to create a long-term partnership as a scalable supply chain solution. Our partners leverage us as a software-only solution. They use our technology, the Suuchi GRID, to manage their existing supply chain partners for end-to-end visibility and valuable data and analytics pulled straight from the website or app.
The other way companies partner with us is to leverage our Western-Hemisphere based design, sourcing, and production solutions coupled with the GRID. We connect them with over 600 supply chain participants across including factories, mills, and freelance technical designers. They can then track the entire process through the GRID.
Q: Can you tell us more about the Suuchi GRID? How is it different from traditional supply chain systems?
A: The GRID is unique because it is the only system that offers full transparency from design to logistics in a single dashboard. Guided by a founder who came from technology, we applied a fresh pair of eyes to identify problems in the fashion supply chain and fix the siloed processes through a unified platform. The GRID offers streamlined communication through comments and native chats, real-time updates, open APIs for integration of any existing systems, and analytics for data-backed business decisions. The other beauty of the GRID is that it can serve as a single software solution or unify existing software to complete a brand’s tech stack.
Q: What is next on the roadmap for Suuchi?
A: In 2020, we are excited to expand our reach outside of the Americas and become a global solution. Through our global expansion, we will also strengthen the GRID to be stronger for other fashion categories including accessories and hard goods. We are excited to introduce the GRID to new industries to continue disrupting and digitizing.
