Bassols integrates all of its logistics and financial processes and prepares to support its growth plan thanks to the Openbravo Business Suite.
"We chose Openbravo due to its technology platform, its extensive textile functionality and ease in adapting some specific requirements, such as the calculation of fabric consumption according to the layout of pieces in the cut ..., which has been developed in the ERP itself. As a result now the whole company works only with Openbravo, we have simplified our processes, improved response times and are prepared to address the new growth and internationalization projects we have planned."
