Almost everyone has a favorite t-shirt. It’s soft, fits just right and can be worn as a pyjama top or dressed up with a nice pair of jeans and shoes. The perfect “worn-in” tee is the inspiration behind the Marine Layer brand, which is all about high quality, comfortable basics.
“We were looking for something progressive and user-friendly. We knew we would be growing, and we felt Lightspeed was a POS that would grow with us,” says Mason James, Marine Layer’s senior operations associate.
And grow they did. There are over 45 in-store employees, 22 employees at the headquarters now, and most of them use Lightspeed Retail daily. “The staff at Marine Layer has found Lightspeed Retail incredibly helpful” explains Mason.
“Obviously, all of our sales associates are using Lightspeed for our in-store transactions, but they also use it for store transfers and inventory, which is very important when you have multiple locations. Our production team uses Lightspeed to create product SKUs and manage our inventory. The customer service team relies on the system to fulfill web orders and manage their inventory. I use it for everything – sales, reporting, predictions and managing inventory.”
Managing 11 stores is no easy feat. However, because Lightspeed Retail is cloud-based, Marine Layer store managers can access data and check on store performance from any location, including the comfort of their homes. “We can be at our desks here in San Francisco and use Lightspeed to check up on our other stores anywhere else in the U.S,” says Mason.
