SkuVault CEO Andy Eastes’ story started in middle school when he began selling things online out of his friends’ parents’ basements, garages, and attics. That eventually evolved into estate sales and then actual stores with actual vendors. Then he helped start an apparel and footwear e-commerce company in Louisville, Kentucky where he soon built his first inventory system. Shortly thereafter he put himself back in the e-commerce business by building the prototype of SkuVault, then called Epic, which he sold to two customers, one of which is still using it today. In December 2012, he launched the web-based system which is now known as SkuVault.
