12:35 Session: Keep Calm and Rock ‘n Roll with IT

High fashion designer brand john varvatos has come a long way in the last 15 years; with its rock-and-roll feel, high profile celebs like Kobe Bryant and Howard Stern have taken to the brands unique flare. But there have been challenges along the way. In April 2012, VF Corporation sold its interest in John Varvatos Enterprises, Inc (JVE). The company now had to build a technology infrastructure that would cover everything from design to sourcing to PO management, while delivering insight that would help boost sales and interact with customers across all of the sales channels.
During this session, Lee Goldenberg, Chief Information Officer for JVE, will discuss the technology implementations that have created a supply chain packed full of functionality, visibility and collaboration covering all of the trading parties, along with the plans for future software solutions that will enable great efficiencies for global trade management. Lee will be joined by Cheryl Layne, Customer Success Champion from Amber Road, one of the providers chosen by John Varvatos Enterprises to bridge the tech gap after the split.
