With Lark, Osakakuma Brings the Best of Japanese Beauty Brands to Your Doorstep
For specialty retailer, Osakakuma, Lark’s flexible all-in-one collaboration solution lets the team focus on their core mission and spend less time worrying about the small stuff.
Chief Operating Officer
"Lark has enabled us to work better as a team by improving communication between departments and allowing the team to have better oversight on the activities of different teammates. As we continue to grow, we are glad to have a partner like Lark."
Osakakuma is the latest in a growing list of specialty e-commerce catering to very niche consumers. The company, founded in Singapore works to bring leading Japanese skincare brands like SK-II, Shisedo and more to a growing legion of beauty-obsessed consumers in Southeast Asia. In order to ensure steady growth and an agility to solve the kinds of issues that young, innovative companies have, the founders turned to Lark’s innovative collaboration platform.
In the beginning, Osakakuma relied on basic, off-the shelf communication platforms like WeChat that were not built for proper enterprise-grade collaboration and communication.
In particular, WeChat was unable to handle the complex documentation and chat management that the growing Osakakuma team needed. Also, unlike Lark’s global server footprint, other solutions the team tried had geographical restrictions, making communicating with regional teams a hassle.
The Lark Advantage
Lark’s comprehensive suite of enterprise collaboration tools allowed Osakakuma to unify all their collaboration and communications tasks in a single platform.
Off the bat, Lark Messenger allowed company communication to be better organized with groups and these group discussions are able to propagate into effective outcomes through the use of Lark Docs.
Lark’s newly released Base project management feature has allowed the team at Osakakuma to better make use of internal resources by creating effective workflows with clear visibility across the organization.
Lark Flowchart was also highlighted as a winning feature with its ability to allow teams to collaborate in a brand new visual style on projects that benefit from such a method such as the developing of websites.
Lark’s intuitive design also allows team members in Singapore and China to better collaborate without needing VPN’s or specialized translation software.
Lark allowed for more mature, enabled professional communication.
Greater cost savings with a single piece of software to maintain
Greater collaboration across regional teams
Improved employee satisfaction with less time wastage.
More organized workflows with advanced features like Lark Flowchart and Base.
Better collaboration with cross border teams
