Pennant Clothing, the knitwear manufacturing arm of Jaeger within Coates Plc until the end of last year and now trading independently after a buy-out, have chosen XeBusiness as their business systems partner to replace the parent company's systems previously in use.
XeBusiness will implement their specialist CRM, Manufacturing and Distribution systems (Xe-ERP) within the new company to streamline customer service and reduce operating cost.
The London based career wear (uniform) division of the business will also use the XeBusiness global product sourcing/CMT module.
Commenting on the contract award, Pennant MD, David Akerman said:
"We chose XeBusiness to provide a strategic management information system as their applications software, after detailed evaluation, proved to be an excellent fit for our requirements coupled with their verifiable track record and experience in the sector. The speed at which the XeBusiness team gets things done is impressive!"
"Being awarded a systems implementation contract from this new and high profile company with an excellent pedigree is obviously a coup for my company. We look forward to making an important contribution to the success and growth of Pennant now trading as an independent, high quality, fashion knitwear supplier" said David Cullis, Chief Executive of XeBusiness.
