How has Jeeves for Fashion worked for your organization?
It has worked very well. Thanks to Jeeves for Fashion we can gather all information related to design and product development in one place, which means that all the people involved have access to exactly the same information. In addition to a more efficient operation, it means also that we minimize the risk of misunderstanding between our various departments.
Have you made any savings with Jeeves for Fashion?
Using Jeeves Design Management we avoid doing redundant tasks and can easily share product information with our colleagues, which makes the entire company more efficient. We now enter information only once, instead of 3-4 times as we did before, which has resulted in great time saving. Jeeves for Fashion has systemized our information in a very good way. And since Jeeves for Fashion is based on Jeeves ERP Fashion, which we have used for a long time, our handling of sizes, colors and qualities have become a smooth process. Even more important, Jeeves for Fashion has helped us become more competitive and increase our profit.

Tranemo Workwear designs, manufactures and sells high-quality work wear for the European market. The company's goal is to, through its products, create professional pride and prevent injuries in workplaces across Europe. Tranemo Workwear invested in Jeeves for Fashion in 2011, and is currently implementing the system.
Why did you choose Jeeves for Fashion?
We worked with a proprietary solution that was not optimal, so we chose Jeeves for Fashion to get a better structure in our product development. We hope that with Jeeves for Fashion we will be able to create a more efficient process – all the way from design and product development to production, logistics and sales.
What is the expected business value?
We expect to improve our technical specifications, and be able to gather all information in one place. And we are pretty sure that Jeeves for Fashion will minimize duplication of work, as well as allow us to work on multiple items simultaneously. We also hope to facilitate the work process for manufacturers who sew our clothes.
Do you see any direct savings?
Our current ways of working are too complex, so our hope is that Jeeves for Fashion will help us to streamline our process and save time. We are confident that the entire work process from design to delivery will be simpler and clearer.

Oscar Wigén has been making hats, caps, and other headwear for over 100 years. The company's current product range also includes accessories such as scarves, gloves and mittens. The bulk of the product range is manufactured in the company’s subsidiary in Estonia. Oscar Wigén invested in Jeeves for Fashion at the end of 2011, and is currently implementing the system.
Why did you choose Jeeves for Fashion?
After studying demos of several different systems, we felt that Jeeves for Fashion displayed a user-friendliness and flexibility that would help us greatly. We already had an interest in Jeeves Design Management and when that became part of the Jeeves family, those feelings were reinforced.
Why was a change of systems necessary?
The supplier of our previous system runs several similar systems and had chosen not to further develop the system we used. There was, in other words, no way forward.
What functionality do you think will be most important to your company?
We are confident that the internal benefits by the system's flexibility will be a boost for the company's employees. As a result of this we will be able to offer greater customer value and customer service.
What other benefits do you expect to achieve?
We have not yet penetrated that deeply into the system and its benefits. But by having all documentation collected in JDM, the collaboration between design and production will undoubtedly be smoother and more efficient.
