Multichannel growth at Jacques Vert

Having merged with the Irisa womenswear group, the Jacques Vert Group is now the UK’s largest concession retailer

Leading British fashion house the Jacques Vert Group is to expand Retail Assist's Merret supply chain system already implemented at Jacques Vert across the entire group.

The decision to roll out Merret across the entire business was an easy one, as the solution is scalable, and has been built with multi-channel capability as a core function

This follows its recent merger with the Irisa womenswear group formerly known as Alexon.

The merger of the two businesses has seen the group expanding from four brands to nine, almost doubling the size of the business, as the store count has gone from 1,000 to 1,900.

The merger has made the Jacques Vert Group the UK’s largest concession retailer.

John Bovill, commercial director at Jacques Vert, said: “The decision to roll out Merret across the entire business was an easy one, as the solution is scalable, and has been built with multi-channel capability as a core function rather than treating each retail channel as a separate entity.

“We were keen to extend the solution across the wider business to fulfil our multi-channel growth aspirations. In addition to this, Merret is set to reduce operating costs at Jacques Vert.”

Bovill continued: “Working closely with the Retail Assist team, we have managed two end-to-end system replacements in under a year.”

Merret is an integrated merchandising and warehousing supply chain solution.

Bovill added: “The project has come out under budget and on time. We had to run the Jacques Vert systems at the same time as integrating the Irisa systems, but everything ran smoothly despite a considerable risk.”
