Malouf recently announced that its HQ software system received a bronze Stevie Award for the Best Use of Technology in Sales category in the 14th annual Stevie Awards for Sales and Customer Service. Developed in-house by Malouf's software engineering team, HQ is used by Malouf employees and retail partners to foster company growth and innovation.
Malouf National Sales Manager Eric Holmstead said, "This award further validates our investment in technology and commitment to streamlined processes. HQ plays an essential role in how we operate as a business—and we've seen great results. We'll continue to evolve this software to accommodate our growth as well as our partners' needs."
Malouf first created HQ in 2016 as an easier way to centralize data. Today, HQ is a wide-ranging system equipped to handle order fulfillment, warehouse management, inventory management, customer relationship management, and company and HR management.
"HQ has simplified how we do business with our customers and allowed us to be fast and nimble while keeping costs low," said Nate Obray, director of the Malouf software engineering team. "To this day, there is no other piece of software that is uniquely tailored to our needs than HQ. It allows us to grow more efficiently and innovate rapidly."
