Jeeves Receives Order from the Dutch Wholesaler Triade

admin March 2008

"After several acquisitions of companies with different ERP-systems we’ve had a need for one uniform system for a long time. After 1.5 years of ERP-system evaluation, Jeeves ERP has fulfilled our demands of flexibility and efficiency for internal transactions," said Wim Pols, CFO Triade Netherlands.

Triade is one of Holland's biggest wholesale companies of electronics for professionals and for home usage. Triade delivers products from over 120 vendors to retailers with totally more than 5,000 sales outlets. During 2007, Triade's revenues amounted to approximately 1 billion euros. Triade has approximately 600 employees in the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxemburg, Denmark, Spain and Portugal. Among Triade's largest shareholders are ABN AMRO Capital and Friesland Bank Investments.

"Triade is a strategic customer for us. Triade is a fast growing mid-sized logistics company with the need of an integrated system. They are a perfect match for us and we have been competing with all the big names. This is at the same time a breakthrough for our collaboration with our partner, JIS Netherlands, and a confirmation that JIS Netherlands and Jeeves are as competitive in Holland as Jeeves is in Sweden," said Lars Dahlberg, Sales Director Jeeves.

Jeeves Information Systems' partner, JIS Netherlands, will initiate the implementation at Triade instantaneously and it will be fully installed by May 1, 2009. The order comprises the first of three roll-out steps, in which sequel orders are expected later 2008 and early 2009.

"We are proud to see that Jeeves' ERP-solution suits Triade’s growing business. For us it means that we can add a very important company to our growing Jeeves customer base. The fact that Triade has chosen us, strengthens our believes that we can make Jeeves not only the fastest growing system in Europe, but in the Netherlands as well," said Jos Bruins, CEO JIS Netherlands.
