Lekia AB - Sweden's Largest Toy Retailer - Chooses Jeeves ERP
With nearly 140 individual toy stores in Sweden and Norway makes Lekia the largest retailer of toys in Sweden. Lekia is also one of Scandinavia’s largest wholesaler of toys and baby equipment.
In addition to selling toys in their stores, they also have an online shopping option via www.lekia.se.
Lekia is currently undergoing a major expansion and their main growth market is Norway, where the number of stores will increase significantly in the next few years.
It is this expansionary growth in Norway that has led them to look for a new ERP solution.
This, in combination with outgrowing their existing system, prompted the procurement of a new ERP solution in the fall of 2017.
"It was important for us to find a solution that supports our growth, a solution to grow together with, and that offers good opportunities for future automation" - says Joakim Twete, IT Manager at Lekia AB.
"The strongest motivator for choosing Jeeves was due to the wide spread of the system’s functionality, that it is easy to customize and existing functionalities such as the ICT, integrations to the Supplier Portal and EasyWMS.
Another advantage for us is that Jeeves runs on a Microsoft platform - which feels safe as we have very experienced Microsoft users in-house" Joakim concludes.
The Jeeves solution provides Lekia with a flexible ERP system that has comprehensive functionality and support for finance, supply chain management and Intercompany Transactions (ICT) - which secures future expansion and challenges for Lekia. Their implementation also includes a Supplier Portal and a Customer Portal where each individual store can handle all their future orders and purchases, both from Lekia's own assortment as well as from external suppliers. The Customer and Supplier Portals are supplied by GUNG.
