A|wear has always had a strong brand presence within Ireland, but like many other retail brands, has struggled during the recent Ireland and EU economic crisis. With the recent investment made by a UK based private equity firm, the company’s focus has shifted rom survival to business growth. As the business plans for stabilization and growth were progressing, the need to invest in an integrated solution for managing core inventory control, merchandising, store and warehouse functions became critical.
A|wear selected Jesta I.S.’ Vision Suite to bring about discipline and visibility across the entire enterprise while implementing best practices for improved operational efficiencies.
A|wear is a relatively small sized business with thirty-one stores across Ireland, but plans to grow significantly with the wholesale, franchise and e-commerce lines of business. In order to enable its managers and associates to focus on business, it was important for A|wear to select a complete enterprise solution that did not require large upfront and ongoing IT investment.
Jesta I.S.’ Vision Suite, with its managed cloud-based delivery and access capabilities, became an ideal candidate to enable A|wear to meet both its short and long term objectives.
“We decided to go with Jesta I.S. for its proven track record in delivering and implementing enterprise solutions for our industry. Vision Suite is an ideal solution for an enterprise of our size and its simple yet robust user interface design will allow for quick adoption by the user community. With some of the largest brands in our industry running their business on Vision Suite, we are certain of its capabilities to help us avigate our journey towards business growth”, said Sam Bain, General Manager of A|wear.
“A|wear is a great win for us, as this confirms the attractiveness of our cloud-based managed service offering for the Vision Suite. Getting A|wear also opens the doors for us in the EU and UK markets where a need for delivering an ultimate ROI is the primary driver for an IT solution selection. Vision Suite, with its bundled flexible licensing and rapid implementation model is well positioned to capitalize in such an economic and business environment”, said Moris Chemtov, President, Jesta I.S.
