Lisa and Joel Copen, owners of Gutsy Goodness, manufactures meaningful jewelry that bring comfort. The company maintains about 1500-2000 SKUS and all assemblers work at home. Katana has proven its value.
The D2C seller is delighted with Katana cloud-based manufacturing software. The owner shared, “Katana has proven invaluable for our company this year. We are currently doing our first complete inventory and we hope to add these numbers to Katana in 2020 and continue to improve our efficiency. This year we went from contract labor/paid-per-piece to employees/hourly-wage and Katana has made this a smooth transition. Having both “cost-per-piece” for assembly of items as well as cost-per-minute has given us the ability to compare former payment procedures with what to expect per hour from employees.”
