Welcome to BuiltOnAir, a podcast and video series about all things Airtable. Each week, we talk with someone active in the Airtable community to discuss their experiences and showcase an interesting way they’ve used Airtable in their work.
This week we welcome Remy Margerum from Santa Barbara, CA. Remy is CFO of Nomad Goods, who describe themselves – appropriately – as “the Patagonia of iPhone accessories”.
Nomad sells their sleek cases, cables, and other gear on their own e-commerce website as well as via wholesale channels, so their product and order management system needs to be able to handle inputs and calculations for a myriad of scenarios.
Although Remy’s official title deals with Finances, his systems and data science background allows to lend a lot to the evolution of Nomad’s internal operations. He has created an astounding base in Airtable that functions as an enterprise resource planning solution for Nomad.
Remy leads us through a thorough deep-dive into the Nomad Goods Backend base. He walks us through the general structure of adding products and placing a wholesale order. We take a look at some of the advanced functions he’s built into the base and how they use Page Designer to generate shipping documents. Remy also discusses their approach to keeping their data secure in Airtable, while allowing their team the flexibility to use data however they need.
