Under the brand concept “Clothes not swayed by trends,” “ONWARD DD” carries out sustainability initiatives by offering fashion items that last a long time. Being chosen by Onward Digital Lab as its partner, transcosmos has built a Shopify-powered website for the brand including initial settings and apps implementation. Making the most of Shopify’s key advantages, namely “low-cost” and “short delivery time,” transcosmos has helped the brand launch the website within only 45 days. What’s more, leveraging its high “flexibility,” another advantage of Shopify, transcosmos continues to further develop the website using templates so that it can serve more brands that Onward Digital Lab plans to add on the website going forward.

“To make a successful brand launch under the COVID-19 crisis, we had to adapt flexibly to the changes in both internal and external business environment. In order to do that, we have taken scalability of the website into consideration so that we can adjust the pre-COVID business concept, start small to reduce risk, and expand the business smoothly as the situation develops,” said Jun Takahashi, a director at Onward Digital Lab Co., Ltd. “After considering various options, we judged that Shopify is the right platform for our website, and that transcosmos is the best choice for us to work with based on not only its credible know-how in building Shopify, but also its comprehensive e-commerce services including fulfillment.”
“As we have revised our business plan as needed, the time to build the Shopify-based website has become shorter than the original plan. We appreciate transcosmos for very flexible services to make it happen. In addition, although most of our meetings were held remotely, we have worked together smoothly, keeping effective communication.
Following “ONWARD DD,” we have launched “IIQUAL” - another brand of ours - on the same website. We plan to add more brands and functions going forward. As we move into the expansion phase of the business, we will need other functions such as logistics, customer support, cross-border services, and more. It is reassuring for us that transcosmos has all those functions. We thank transcosmos for its continued support and partnership with us.”
