"I would like to congratulate all the extraordinary efforts of the JDS Solutions team who have worked on integrating the INDITEX process to our WinRetail software solution."

Vice President of Sales
Celso Perez Group
Inditex is one of the world's largest fashion retailers, welcoming shoppers at its eight store formats -Zara, Pull & Bear, Massimo Dutti, Bershka, Stradivarius, Oysho, Zara Home and Uterqüe - boasting 4,705 stores in 76 countries.
The Initex Group is made up of more than 100 companies operating in textile design, manufacturing and distribution.
The group's success and its unique business model, based on innovation and flexibility, have made Inditex one of the biggest fashion retailers in the world.
Celso Perez is operating most of its franchise stores with WinRetail, JDS Solutions’ flagship POS and Retail Management System; however its franchise stores under the Inditex umbrella had a propriety POS to send sales and inventory data separately to Inditex. Therefore, information was split between two systems. This prevented Celso Perez the ability to look at their entire business at one time.
The solution was to integrate WinRetail with Inditex’s process so that Celso Perez could operate all of its 25 stores in one system, and Inditex could continue to receive all its required data business as usual.
Having a two system scenario was causing an inefficient and expensive situation for the franchisee. Successfully operating its other stores with WinRetail exclusively, the Celso Perez organization confidently knew that the answer was to interface WinRetail to Inditex. This would allow management to improve operation efficiencies while still meeting the precise requirements of the franchisor. The Inditex WinRetail integration added an extra challenge since Inditex’s logistics rely on an extremely fast and particular flow of information.
The Celso team turned to JDS to help solve this cumbersome situation.
After a thorough analysis and understanding of Inditex’s requirements, the JDS development team accomplished the integration of WinRetail to Inditex’s propriety software.
"The WinRetail integration solution has permitted us to efficiently manage our Inditex operations," said Francis Redman, Celso Perez, VP Sales.
"All Inditex demands were accurately met by WinRetail, permitting us to have an easy rollover of the existing stores and immediately proceed with the opening of a new Zara, Bershka and Stradivarius stores at the new Blue Mall Shopping Center in Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic," added Redman.
Bottom Line Impact
Celso Perez is now saving mega time and money operating all of its stores under one system with sales and inventory analytics readily available. Also since the process of adding stores is now simplified, current and future growth plans can be expedited faster. "WinRetail has proved to work on a very strict, precise and fast retail environment," said Redman.
