Van de Velde

Executive summary

Van de Velde creates, produces and commercializes luxurious women’s lingerie under its own brand names. Van de Velde is originally a Belgian company. All key activities are managed from Belgium: design and product development, purchase, quality control, administration, distribution, sales and marketing.

Challenges

Van de Velde has resolutely opted for a digitisation of the organisation, due to several reasons, such as:

  • a number of acquisitions – because of  this growth, the IT landscape became complex
  • the competitive market requires a flexible architecture that can facilitate and support the rapid changes in business processes

Van de Velde experienced some challenges with regard to integration of data and applications. Their previous solutions were seen as too expensive, too complex, functionally inadequate and not flexible enough.

Approach

  1. LoQutus performed an ESB (Enterprise Service Bus) tool to check the technological capabilities against the business and technology needs of Van de Velde
  2. a successful Proof of Concept was realised
  3. knowledge about the integration architecture, vision and solutions were transferred to the employees of Van de Velde
  4. LoQutus assists with training and coaching as the chosen integration solution is implemented.

 

Results

  • Van de Velde now has the right integration architecture to address various challenges with regard to business process changes and acquisitions in a very efficient way.
  • Ready for future digitisation
