April 19, 2023 – London, UK

Board International, a leading global provider of Intelligent Planning Solutions which help organizations to plan smarter, enabling actionable insights and better outcomes, replaces various individual solutions at Betty Barclay Group to establish a comprehensive, unified planning solution. The partner for the implementation of the new, cloud-based solution is celver AG.

"Board convinced us with its high performance and user-friendliness. Loading data sets and performing analyses is much faster than in the previous system. Creating new planning applications is programming-free, making it very easy," said Florian Graf, Director Merchandise Planning and Allocation at Betty Barclay Group. "We are starting with Merchandise Financial Planning but have our eyes on further data applications."

The brand portfolio at Betty Barclay comprises a total of 12 brands, including Betty Barclay, Gil Bret, Vera Mont, Betty & Co, Amber & June and Cartoon. Some of these were using different planning solutions. Planning is now unified by Board and allows Intelligent Planning for all markets and channels including wholesale planning. As a result, all data for order planning is now available on a single planning platform.

"We are delighted to welcome Betty Barclay Group as another customer from the fashion and retail sector," said Marco Limena, CEO of Board. "This proves once again that our Intelligent Planning Platform perfectly covers the needs in this sector and helps companies to plan smarter and achieve better results in these challenging times."

Board contributes to Betty Barclay Group´s current digitization strategy. The company is building a smart data platform on which all data will flow together.
