Micro Fashion is the right name for a company that’s responsible for some of the classiest apparel produced in the fashion industry—in particular, the Profuomo brand of menswear. Every element of every offering is known for flawless quality—the company faithfully follows the Profuomo philosophy laid down in 1934 that “everything from the raw material to the final stitches should be chosen and applied with consideration and deliberation.” That goes not just for the apparel itself, but for a lean, efficient quote to delivery process.
Many of the 75 employees located in Capelle aan den Ijssel (HQ in the Netherlands) and Zurich (Switzerland) work with 1500 configurations a year that can open Pandora’s Box of specifications: a stunning range of shirts, ties, cufflinks, belts, and scarves. Demand for products is high, which is great, but it means that IT and logistics staff need to continuously coordinate high volumes of article numbers and ensure that highly-specialized details are associated with the correct numbers. All information needs to live in Microsoft Dynamics NAV, and even small errors impact a wide range of operations. Data needs to be carefully safeguarded, but at the same time, sales, procurement, and purchasing need the freedom to access and work with article numbers quickly and easily.
