Etam International Sourcing (EIS) leverages the flexibility of the Openbravo ERP Platform and gains full control over its multi-brand and multi-country operations.
"Our choice of Openbravo was initially driven by cost and scalability. Starting with a small team in a very competitive market, we needed to consider our IT investment very carefully, yet ensuring the chosen system was reliable, scalable and flexible, not to be stuck with limited system functionalities as the business grew.
