With over 6 years of experience in designing women’s apparel, Beautique has been evolving and adapting to the rapidly changing North American fashion industry. Amanda Christopherson started o in the tiniest of ways, she sold clothing out of the basement in her residence in Brandon. Wanting to spend quality time with her kids, she decided to start o her business staying at home. It would be an understatement to say that she has come a long way in her pursuit of building her own business. Beautique now has a retail storefront and a 10,000 square feet warehouse store that powers her business both online and offline.
In the space of a few months, Amanda moved from her basement to her garage to set up her growing business. It soon progressed into a 3,400 square feet warehouse, such was the scale of growth that her business had witnessed. Today, Beautique employs over 20 young women and her Facebook page has 280,000+ followers accompanied by a VIP group with over 22,000 members. The boutique now specializes in products that include outerwear, tops, shoes, and accessories. Beautique uses Vajro to power its mobile app and drive revenue.
Though Beautique had all the pieces in place, their potential to reach heights needed expanding across channels, Amanda realized that she had to level up her customer engagement and revenue numbers. The need to accelerate her growth rate resulted in opting for Vajro.
Amanda sensed that a mobile app would enhance the store’s customer base and improve their overall sales numbers. She learned of other major stores that were stepping their game with a mobile app, and made the decision to go mobile. But the realization and decision came with a dierent set of challenges altogether - building an app from scratch, putting in the time, eort & money into the whole process, and launching it.
Amanda found Vajro through her boutique store peers when she was looking for mobile app developers. With Vajro, she was able to build the perfect mobile app, the way she envisioned for her boutique.
