Home goods startup goes next level with FileMaker

Sien + Co visits vendor shows as both the vendor of knitwear and home goods and a buyer of other lifestyle brands.  They needed a way to display the rest of their entire collection to vendors in a portable way.  They also needed a way to document vendor details such as business cards, lead times, product details, and follow-up notes.

– Centralize Product Portfolio 

– Centralize Documentation of Pictures, Notes, and Business Cards 

– Prevent Lost Notes and Business Cards

iSolutions was asked to create an iPad application that would be versatile for Sien + Co as both a buyer and a vendor to stay organized during the fashion shows. 

An iPad application as built that included accounts and products with a way to display if they were Sien + Co vendor accounts or other buyer accounts. The solution eliminated paper and pencil note taking and potential loss of information


– Visibility to Sien + Co’s entire product line without carrying the product

– Elimination of paper and pen note taking and pieces of paper and cards that are easily lost 

– Improved visibility to notes taken during the shows by connecting vendors and their products together with pictures
