The Dutch fashion brand Garcia Jeans is known for its high-quality and authentic Italian denim fashion that is offered at an honest price. Expanding globally in 2011, Garcia Jeans counts 2,500 multibrand stores, more than 70 shop-in-shops, 200 soft shops, 25 franchise stores and an online store catering for 20 companies. In 2015, Garcia Jeans opened up its brand new webshop.
In the fashion industry, brands have to be flexible, technically up-to-date, and adapt quickly to changes to keep up with the competition. Besides running an outdated FTP server, Garcia Jeans experienced problems when it came to managing their marketing materials. Finding the correct asset was difficult and time-consuming, resulting in a low adaption rate. Working with their webshop was also a very labor-intensive process that needed improvement.
As a result, Garcia Jeans was looking for a new solution that would help the company manage their digital assets more efficiently within one single platform. Garcia Jeans needed a user-friendly solution, which would integrate their existing PIM (product information management) with the new webshop, and reduce their time to market in the process.
The Bynder solution fitted our needs the best, a lot of the specs we wanted were already build in and tested, not having to worry if the functionalities promised also worked. Another extra plus was the experience they have with other companies in the fashion industry.Jeroen Coppens
Thanks to the digital asset management module, Garcia Jeans was able to improve its file management processes. High-resolution images for new campaigns can be easily uploaded with the drag and drop tool, which can then be tagged and organized. The suggestive Google-like search and advanced filters helps all users find files in seconds.
Navigation in the asset library is very, very user friendly and super easy to understand without having to train an international group of people.Jeroen Coppens
With Bynder’s API, Garcia Jeans is able to easily connect the brand portal with their new webshop through hybris, the top-rated e-commerce software and omni-channel solution. All images on Garcia Jeans’ website are synced with their brand portal. This means that duplicates or outdated images, as well as labor-intensive steps getting products published on the new webshop remain the past. With the new webshop, the fast-growing brand aims to strengthen its global expansion.
Garcia Jeans is able to save a huge amount of time and effort by using Bynder. The fashion brand could save about 1 FTE for the new webshop and other internal processes. Their digital assets can now be stored and shared securely within one central platform, and the labor-intensive process of publishing product information on their webshop was eliminated.
Another extra plus was the experience they have with other companies in the fashion industry.Jeroen Coppens
