Skubana exists to help digitally native brands and e-tailers leverage their supply chain as a competitive differentiator. Built for high growth, high volume merchants, Skubana is designed to maximize day-to-day operational efficiency without compromising on visibility, accuracy, or overhead across an organization’s entire supply chain. We are helping brands like Victoria Beckham Beauty, Darn Tough Socks, & Loot Crate to stay nimble as their business becomes increasingly complex.

 

In today’s age, we believe that businesses should not be forced to invest significant time, money, or human capital towards building and supporting customized software to automate rudimentary tasks. Nor should highly customized software be required to provide the same meaningful intelligence that all digitally native merchants rely on. Our team works hard each day to make that a reality.
