PUMA Range Toolbox

Global Retailing

PUMA Range Toolbox supports the review of the upcoming collection by allowing merchandisers to vote for products and leave feedback on individual design or the overall collection. The new web based planning application improves work efficiency and flexibility throughout the whole process from article selection to analysis of the selected article range. As the application is fully integrated with the surrounding product lifecycle applications, it also saves a lot of work by being automatically updated with the latest article data and also automatically sending the selected range back to BI, PLM and sourcing systems.

The product is technologically advanced and includes a large stack of technologies. Especially the use of the Vaadin Touchkit allowed to create an application with the feel of a native iPad solution but still allowing to leverage all the advantages of a regular web application: zero installation/deployment issues, centralized data, easier updates, no local administration, access from anywhere within PUMA, etc.

"By using the Vaadin TouchKit we were able to focus on functionality rather than on all the tricky details of a regular web application, like CSS, JavaScipt, HTML, etc. With the help of Vaadin we built a functional and intuitive GUI." , tells Christian Burger from PUMA SE.
