Apparel

Custom Solutions Designed for Your Success

With e-commerce surging and traditional distribution channels heavily disrupted, strategically positioning your brand’s sales platforms is crucial to meet changing consumer habits and stay ahead of change. 

Doing so, however, can often require apparel businesses to maintain significant cash flow, consider potential financing alternatives, and devote major resources to certain operational areas.

Explore how our industry-smart services can help your business focus on what matters most: providing your customers with multiple distribution channels and fast delivery of your products.  

Conquer Industry Challenges

From enhancing your web presence to assessing financing options, our business solutions can help you plan for what’s next.

Strengthen E-Commerce

Delivering a seamless online shopping experience is essential, but what feels like a simple purchase to consumers can require massive work on the backend.

Constant strategic decision-making is needed to provide:

  • Ease of checkout
  • Personalized experiences and account preference management
  • Automation to oversee orders and communications
  • Quick and reliable order fulfillment
  • Easy returns and comprehensive customer service

Evolve your e-commerce operations to help attract and retain customers with our E-commerce Practice.

Protect Valuable Assets and Data

The expansion of e-commerce, technology-driven financial operations, and remote work setups can provide easy access for cybercriminals to infiltrate your system and cause costly breaches.

Cyberattacks can prove damaging to both your operations and clients. Test your current systems to evaluate your safety levels and identify controls you need for further preventive measures or determine if implementing a new system could provide enhanced support.

Identify and implement changes to help protect your business and assets, as well as your customers’ credit cards and other private data, with our Cybersecurity Services.

Make Data-Driven Decisions

Businesses need to be deliberate about what products to produce and how to produce them. Tapping into your business’s data can help inform your strategy based on information related to quantity, styles, and other key factors.

Implementing systems that allow your business to operate in integrated, collaborative ways can provide access to illuminating data that can help boost operational efficiencies and reliability.

Avoid Tax Penalties

The South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc. ruling drastically upended previous tax laws as various state and local tax organizations seek to collect new revenue. Ever-changing state nexus laws could have major financial implications for businesses that sell into multiple states if not properly monitored.

Businesses with operations and customers across the globe also face distinct international tax challenges.

Stay up-to-date with the additional state and global tax forms, deadlines, and filing requirements that can overwhelm your business with our State & Local Tax and International Tax Services.

Access Alternative Financing

Pursuing innovation, modernizing your operations, or recovering from setbacks can come with significant costs. Fortunately, tax credits that reward specific hiring practices and building improvements and construction can help offset these expenses.

Standard banking lines of credit also aren’t often available to apparel companies that may need to borrow against inventory with no customer orders when going into production—rather than traditional accounts receivable lines of credits. This makes the lending process burdensome for inexperienced businesses. Establish strong relations with lenders and secure appropriate lending models with guidance from our professionals.

Boost your cash flow and pursue credit and loans with our Cost Segregation, Strategy & Operations Consulting Services, and more.

Execute Deals Confidently

Make strong, informed decisions and validate your position ahead of a merger, acquisition, or transaction with an asset valuation and quality of earnings assessment.

Achieve your goals by uncovering risks and issues early so you can solidify your transaction strategy. We can also help you create business value, raise equity and debt capital, or evaluate alternatives.
