Fashion retailer Jack Wills has appointed Zetes, the SAP VAR and identification solutions specialist, to implement the SAP Business All-in-One for Retail software solution.
The solution includes merchandising, procurement, distribution, sales, financials and business intelligence. According to Zetes, it will integrate Jack Wills’ back office business channels, support multi-channel retailing and enable new outlets to be operational in the shortest possible timeframes, while managing operating costs.
A spokesperson for Jack Wills said: “We are delighted to be working with SAP and Zetes. SAP is a great brand and we look forward to a healthy and successful working relationship.”
The project will be implemented in a phased approach by Zetes. As a SAP VAR, Zetes has experience working as a SAP integrator with fast growing retailers and luxury brands.
Richard Pascoe, senior director ERP at Zetes, said: “Jack Wills has a distinctive brand in a highly competitive market, so it’s critical the management team has clarity across all aspects of their business, enabling them to act quickly with insight, efficiency, and flexibility.
“SAP is also a trusted brand with an outstanding reputation and its solutions have proven disciplines in place to allow Jack Wills to progress knowing best practice has been followed. Because this version of the SAP Business All-in-One solution is tailored for the retail market, this will enable Jack Wills to maximise merchandise flow, improve responsiveness to customer requirements and execute a more effective supply chain.”
John Antunes, director of SME and channels, SAP UK & Ireland, said: “Jack Wills is an exciting fast growing organisation and we truly believe Zetes is the right integrator for this project with a similar business culture. Jack Wills was looking for a technology partner that has experience in luxury brands and a good understanding of the SAP product. Zetes has clearly demonstrated that they posses both. I have every confidence that this will be a great project and, with Zetes’ support, look forward to enabling Jack Wills to execute on their business strategy.”
