Crockett & Jones are stepping forward with Prima Solutions

Crockett & Jones, makers of fine English leather shoes have selected PrimaNet, the specialist multi-channel apparel software system as their platform for future growth.

Founded in 1879 in Northampton, at the heart of England’s most famous shoemaking town, Crockett & Jones is now in its 5th generation as a family run business and continues to produce shoes & boots in their original Northampton factory with the same attention to detail as the founders, specialising in producing only the highest quality Goodyear-welted footwear and accessories for both men and women.

The first Crockett & Jones standalone store opened in Jermyn Street, London back in 1997. Today, they are stocked by numerous luxury clothing stores and shoe shops around the world as well as having 12 Crockett & Jones standalone flagship stores, displaying the largest collection of Crockett & Jones shoes, worldwide.

A new website was launched at the end of January 2017 which has been designed and developed with their customers in mind, offering in-depth and interesting information coupled with rich videography and photography.

The strong reputation of Crockett & Jones, which continues to flourish, is built on solid foundations and a great ethos started many generations ago. The fact that the business remains in the hands of the family who started it, ensures that the standards of the past are maintained today and lends a more personal touch to the fine shoes that they produce.

With continued growth anticipated, the company recognised the need to work with industry experts, who would take the time to understand their business and deliver a scalable ERP system that could be integrated throughout the business and support further development opportunities.

Jonathan Jones, Managing Director at Crockett & Jones said: “We have been committed to maintaining the highest standards of traditional craftsmanship, quality and service for over 130 years so it was important for us to work with a partner who understood our heritage and values but had the experience and expertise to take our business forward; Prima Solutions met all of our criteria and more”

 Stephen Belcher, Joint Managing Director of Prima Solutions commented: “We are thrilled to have been selected to work with such a prestigious brand and are looking forward to working closely with the team to develop the relationships we have already built, and create a valued long-lasting partnership in years to come”.
