Grenson

Founded in 1866 by William Green, Grenson is a long-established footwear manufacturer based in Northamptonshire, internationally renowned for high quality shoemaking and fine manufacturing. Grenson was one of the first footwear manufacturers to use the Goodyear welt method, which is now the hallmark of British shoes, becoming very popular in the 1940s as worn by Hollywood actors such as Fred Astaire, Cary Grant and Montgomery Clift.

This forward-thinking company now operates as a truly multichannel business with a growing number of own retail stores, a long-standing wholesale division and a rapidly growing ecommerce channel. Always evolving, Grenson identified the need to establish a modern ERP system to facilitate their multichannel business processes and act as a real platform for future growth. Following a detailed selection process, they chose PrimaNet for our specialist expertise in the footwear industry.

The new agreement has seen Grenson implement a totally integrated solution including Product Development, Sales Order and Purchase Order Processing, Materials Control, Manufacturing, Retail Management, ecommerce integration, integrated Financials and Business Intelligence.
“We have chosen to work with Prima Solutions because their experience in the footwear sector is extensive and they really understand the operational requirements of a business like ours. Initially, we were impressed by the team and the process improvements they have suggested and we have subsequently been very impressed by the references we gained from some of their other customers. This integrated IT solution will provide us with just the platform we are looking for to support our future growth and we are looking forward to the additional business benefits that PrimaNet will bring.”
