A journey from paper to digital
Founded in 2008, Mission Bicycle Company is a bicycle manufacturer based in San Francisco. Specializing in single speed bikes, though they also offer geared options, every cycle they build is made to order and customized according to their customer's choices, from the wheels to the pedals, and even the straps. To keep track of all this information, they used a "build sheet" — a sheet of paper on which they noted specifics of each bicycle. The major pain point with build sheets was the increasing number of errors in order details, resulting in cancellation or redesign.
That's when the team started evaluating alternatives and chose Zoho Creator — a robust low-code app development platform. They have since digitized their value chain by building dedicated applications for sales, production, vendor management, and bookkeeping.
The solution that worked
With Zoho Creator, Mission Bicycle was able to build feature-rich applications that allowed them to
- Simplify order-taking and order management.
- Streamline data handling throughout the value chain.
- Stay informed about stock levels and receive notifications when they needed to restock.
- Automate their after-sales follow-up process.
