New backup in the team of "Fashion Flash" - Daniel Cikin supports project management as a working student The F&P Stock Solution GmbH is not only one of the world's leading wholesaler of overstocks for brand shoes and branded textiles. With the second pillar of F&P, the pop-up outlet event "Fashion Flash", F&P also sells its products to end customers. The success story of "Fashion Flash" began in 2013 in Chemnitz. From there, the unique event concept spreaded itself as a mix of special shopping experiences, top brands and top quality products in special prices throughout Germany. The establishment of such an event series requires a lot of know-how and project planning. In the five years since founding Fashion Flash, the team at F&P has gained a lot of experiences, especially with social media marketing, and can also use it for other projects. The team around the Head of Event, Georgios Kotsougianis (named “Jorgo”), was growing steadily, not only with these tasks. Since November 01, 2018, another working student supports the work of our Project Manager, Viktoria Eder. Daniel Cikin was born in Falkensee and is an addition to the team. You want to know more about Daniel and his first day at Fashion Flash by F&P Stock Solution: "I'm really looking forward to this adventure F&P Stock Solution and especially to the tasks that “Fashion Flash" helds. I finished my degree in Sports Management a few months ago at the University of Potsdam. I’ve been living in Falkensee and I’m very happy that I have found this job, which offers me everything that I enjoy and also with a super short commute. I love topics like: Events, Organization, Fashion and Sneakers. All these points apply to the company F&P Stock Solution GmbH that's why I decided to start working at F&P. I started at F&P Stock Solution as a Project Assistant for the "Fashion Flash" and was able to take on other tasks after a short time, such as buying. My first days were very interesting, I learned a lot about the subject of Human Resources and was also able to contribute my experiences from my previous time at Adidas in the event sector. In addition, there are many more and new projects at F&P, which I expect with much anticipation. I was warmly and friendly received, for which I thank everyone again. I especially thank for Viktorias and Jorgos confidence, who gave me the possibility to start working at F&P Stock Solution."     ...

"In the rushing time of "digital first", a holistic online presence has become the basic prerequisite for the vibrancy of almost every company type. The truthfulness of this statement applies in particular to the e-commerce industry. If you, as an entrepreneur, are given the necessary attention due to challenges such as a tempting graphical presentation of the website, the user-friendliness of the customer journey of the homepage, the product pages to the digital shopping cart or an individual approach to the clientele, you are already on the right track. However, before a potential customer can even access the company website, the appropriate framework conditions must be created. One point is particularly important: in the broad ocean of search results, the website in question, such as www.stock-solution.de, should end up in the user's list directly at number 1. To ensure that, there is the so-called SEO management, which is more important than ever in this day and age. This includes, for example, a thorough keyword research that combines the specifics of the company with the necessary customer language in order to adapt the contents of the website, be it the idea of the team or the blog.   If you are looking for concise keywords, you should get insights from different sources, and not rely on just one. The operation of the popular keyword research tools is an indispensable step here. In addition, such measures as monitoring competitors' moves, visiting customer forums, tackling keyword recommendations in Google's search box, etc., can be combined in a winning way to cover the widest variety of search queries.   For example, managing an informative corporate blog is one of the best ways to present yourself as a competent business partner and at the same time strengthen your own rankings. The blog posts are primarily intended to provide detailed answers to the burning questions.   Just like in real life, the personal recommendations from customer to customer drive the sales, the online referrals in the form of links from third party websites serve to reinforce the trustworthiness of the corporate website from the perspective of search engines. In addition, the technical aspects also play a significant role in the field of SEO optimization, including the speed of the website, the consistency of internal linking from one website area to another or the addition of additional information about the main content of the respective pages in the form of So-called "metadata" increase the visibility of the Internet presence significantly.   Last but not least, the way Google sorts and evaluates web pages in search results is constantly evolving so you do not get bored with it as an SEO manager. That's why I find the multidisciplinary nature of search engine optimization particularly exciting. Such skills as eloquence, a good understanding of statistical relationships, interest in Internet architecture, and not least common sense are essential in this area. I spent my early childhood in Moscow and then grew up bilingually in northern Italy. During high school, I especially loved the subject of history. After graduation I started my undergraduate studies in Economics at the University of Verona. Later I went to Germany for a further degree and took a master's degree in "International Marketing" at the Technical University of Mittelhessen. My fateful canton Bern, the manageable casting, the former capital Bonn and the splendid Berlin belonged to my previous stations in the context of my erroneous route. Besides my love of European languages, cooking vegan dishes, playing chess and cycling are also my hobbies."   The entire team from F&P wishes Roman a perfect start and an exciting time!   ...

"I’m 26 years old and come from Potsdam where I live together with my girlfriend and two beautiful cats. In my free time, I like to cook, go to the cinema or sit relaxed in front of the console. In 2012, I successfully finished my apprenticeship as a warehouse logistics specialist. After half a year I wanted to gain new experiences in a new job and so I started to work at an international logistics giant. Unfortunately I didn’t like it there and so I tried relatively quickly to reorient myself and found a place as Head of the Warehouse for empties at Real. Before starting in the warehouse at F&P have been able to gain more experience with an automotive supplier. Now I am here at F&P Stock Solution and I’m very curious about what expects me and what great people I will get to know here. "   The entire F&P team wishes Nils a really good time and everyone looks forward to working with them.   ...

F&P Stock Solution and AmazonSmile – Shopping means donation to Jangu e.V. Social Engagement at F&P Stock Solution! F&P Stock Solution was founded in 2013 by two young, dedicated founders who wanted to do more than just “sell goods”. Julius Göllner and Ole Schneikart wanted to find a solution for the question, "What happens to all the shoes and textiles that are not sold?" The idea: to give overstocks of shoes and textiles a second life cycle. By implementing this business policy, Julius and Ole have meanwhile not only created around 50 new jobs, but also found a way to not throw away what our affluent society no longer wants. In the five years since the foundation, F&P Stock Solution has become one of the world's leading wholesalers of overstock, costumer returns and liquidation goods. F&P sells high quality branded goods worldwide to its international customers. The highly motivated and young team around the founders of F&P is working with passion and dedication to further growth. But Julius and Ole aren’t only ambitious and passionate about their own business. They always saw the opportunities to make a difference through their "hands-on mentality". They want to change something with and through F&P! Environmental and social topics are thought through and practical solutions sought. Since the end of October 2018, F&P Stock Solution is proud to publish a so-called successfully audited GWÖ balance sheet. It’s not a balance sheet according to financial standards, it’s a balance for the increase of the common good. In addition to human dignity, transparency and ethical attitude, it is also about sustainability and ecology. In addition to the GWÖ balance sheet, F&P also supports social institutions and projects with donations. For example, the children's shelter of the ASB in Falkensee with the Charity Fashion Flash in April 2018 (link to the article) or the breast cancer organization “Pink Ribbon”. The latest project is the support of Jangu e.V. by purchasing materials via smile.amazon.de. What is Jangu e.V. and how does F&P support the association by shopping at Amazon? AmazonSmile is a project of the shopping giant Amazon. For every order the customer makes through the smile.amazon.de website, 0.5% of the shopping sum will be donated to a social organization. The social organization can be selected in advance by the costumer from thousands of organizations. F&P Stock Solution buys most of its materials for the office or warehouse via Amazon. The idea of supporting social projects by shopping was a perfect one and comes at the right time. Julius and Ole, the founders and managing directors of F&P have decided to support Jangu e.V. via AmazonSmile. Jangu e.V. (link to page) is a non-profit association founded in 2009 which supports disadvantaged children and young people in Uganda and prospects for their future through education.   „Our educational sponsorships lay the foundation while our Social Innovation Academy (SINA) unleashes the youth’ potential to start their own social enterprises and solve social challenges in Uganda. Our NGO was founded in 2009 by a young and motivated team. Educational sponsorships have been established since 2007 and the first generation of our sponsored children have passed their A-Levels in November 2013. We are successfully working in close cooperation with our Ugandan partners and our network of sponsored and formerly sponsored youth. Nelson Mandela once said that “Education is the most powerful weapon which we can use to change our world”. Therefore, education is indispensable in development cooperation and can sustainably empower the generations of the future to live in a dignified and content way. We want to make our contribution to this and invite you to support Jangu e.V.!” (Source: Homepage Jangu e.V.) "We are grateful that we can provide contributions to such an important social project by the simple change of our shopping process to AmazonSmile."

What does F&P Stock Solution GmbH stand for? F&P Stock Solution stands for speed and professionalism in all departments. The wholesale of overstocks, customer returns and liquidation goods in the shoes and textile market requires a high degree of trust between customers and suppliers. For F&P, this means ensuring good collaboration between all departments, whether it's buying, selling, warehouse or accounting. For a quick and smooth transaction of all transactions an experienced team, flexibility and a good teamwork are necessary. Since the founding of F&P Stock Solution in 2013, the company has grown to currently around 50 employees, with an upward trend. F&P now consists of seven departments: Sales, Buying, Finance, Human Resources, Back Office and Warehouse. ("About us"). The two founders and managing directors, Julius Göllner and Ole Schneikart, have launched F&P with the idea of taking shoes and textiles to a second lifecycle. The topic of recycling and sustainable use of already produced but still usable goods is becoming more and more important for the consumers. Nevertheless, it is not easy to combine quality, price and performance, especially in the wholesale of overstocks, so that in the end everyone is satisfied. This succeeds only with a professional structure.   Have a look behind the scene of the finance division at F&P Stock Solution GmbH The finance department has very extensive responsibilities that require cooperation with all departments at F&P. A normal day starts with reviewing account sales and tracking in our project management tool, so that sales managers and the warehouse know if customers can pick up their goods. After this is done many more tasks are on the list that can differ every day. When purchasing the goods and services, we are in close contact with the Warehouse, Buying, Merchandise and Fashion Flash departments to determine whether all the invoices we have provided are correct in their content. The formal audit is the responsibility of the finance department itself. After the audit, we record all invoices in our accounting software and prepare the payment, which will be finally released by the CFO or the managing directors.   In addition to all purchases and acquisitions, we are also responsible for processing all outgoing invoices. As soon as a customer orders a product from one of the sales managers, we receive the corresponding request and create the corresponding invoices. After invoicing, we monitor the outstanding receivables and, via the project platform mentioned above, inform all involved whether the goods can be picked up.   The basic tasks require a very precise and stringent operation of the entire department, since this work later forms the basis for all further evaluations and analyses made for all business areas. In addition to the reporting and the analysis for all department heads, this also includes regular evaluations for the management in order to review the short-term goals and to define the next short- and medium-term goals. Apart from the internal benefit of the work, this is also the basis for various monthly reports to the German authorities, such as the sales tax return, which are all transmitted by the finance department itself. In addition to these everyday tasks, the professional knowledge of accounting is also in demand again and again when developing new business ideas. Because sometimes processes are very easy to present from the point of view of sales. However, to capture them correctly in accounting and tax law usually requires more effort to provide all the necessary evidence for a proper bookkeeping. In summary, one can state that the finance department is the contact person for all matters involving monetary issues. ...
