Permoda has established itself as an international company that specializes in creating unique garments inspired by the personality and lifestyle of a large group of people from the most active and dynamic cities in the world. In this intense quest to make fashion a culture, Permoda has created a powerful brand, with more than 250 stores, that today dress people from various countries of the world: KOAJ one of the most desired brands by thousands of people who have understood that dressing well is a true attitude of life.

Regarding the obstacles due to the lack of resources and tools that made the company’s integral processes difficult, Josué Serpa, IT Director of Permoda Ltda, states: “Updating our technology is a response to the need to fully control the operation. The ERP with which we had been working was implemented 10 years ago. With time the programming language and file storage system became obsolete, did not allow handling large volumes of data or easy connection to database engines to get information to implement business intelligence solutions. The growth in our operations led us to make the decision, and we had to have a more robust platform that would allow us to serve our business efficiently and guarantee the profitability of the firm”.
For this reason, Permoda Ltda. recently carried out a constant search for technological tools that could satisfy their needs and guarantee a more efficient operation, in order to have total control of the information. At first, they made a list of requirements and start searching on how to get a solution for specific issues such as information extraction, among other integral processes required to optimize data management, and those new technologies required to respond with quality standards and strictly resolve the company delays and difficulties in being able to comply with its processes.
