Stitch Labs Increases Innovation in Retail with API for Partners

Third-party Partners Can Develop and Innovate New Tools and Resources Derived From the Award-winning Platform

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - August 04, 2015) - Stitch Labs, the leading inventory control and multichannel selling solution, today announces the availability of an application programming interface (API), enabling third-party software solutions to integrate directly with its platform. ShippingEasy and Lokad will be the first to begin using the API to innovate and develop additional tools and resources for multichannel sellers.

In an effort to continue growth as a scalable solution for retailers across the globe, Stitch developed a flexible API for third-party partners, leveraging the same API backbone that drives the award-winning platform. Building on this foundation provides partners with a predictable development tool set that inherently benefits from any and all improvements made to the main application.

"The retail environment is constantly changing, demanding more flexibility and agility from retailers and the solutions they use," said Brandon Levey, CEO of Stitch Labs. "Releasing this API makes our partners, and the customers they serve, more competitive. But it also positions Stitch as a central, foundational platform that makes that constant adaptation to new demands possible."

Lokad, an inventory optimization software, is leveraging the new API to provide customers with a wider view of analytics and forecasting. As a new partnership, Stitch customers can now better forecast inventory, gain suggested reorder quantities, and create customizable dashboards using Stitch data and Lokad analytics.

"Delivering advance inventory forecasting to reduce both stock levels and stock-outs is a very challenging task," said Joannes Vermorel, CEO of Lokad. "Stitch Labs' API takes away the manual difficulty of retrieving the data and provides merchants the ability to get the information nearly instantly. This is a radical improvement over the tedious data extracts of the past, turning tasks that would have taken days of works into a 1-click, fully automated process."

ShippingEasy, created an integration that allows customers to automate their shipping process to get packages out the door more efficiently.

"Our partnership with Stitch Labs really closed the loop for multichannel sellers who needed one solution to ship globally," said Eric Youngstrom, Head of Business Development at ShippingEasy. "Using this API platform will enable our team to offer retailers the best prices on shipping to help decrease overall shipping costs."
