Gürmen Group had been seeking an industrial solution for some time to allow its brands to collaborate more efficiently on a single unified platform.  Based on diligent research and a deep market offering assessment—which lasted over a year—the group decided that Dassault Systèmes’ “My Collection” industry solution experience was the best-in-class fashion solution to address its requirements. Its objective is to deploy the solution within a six-month timeframe.

Based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, the “My Collection” industry solution experience will provide Gürmen Group with a unified digital environment that connects internal and external stakeholders, integrates its value chain, and improves visibility, flexibility and decision support.  Teams will collaborate in a single environment, spending less time chasing and duplicating data and more time on developing and sourcing items. With “My Collection,” Gürmen Group will accelerate time to market of its Ramsey and KİP collections and its teams can better focus on creative work.

“This collaboration will give us a competitive advantage and will surely add value to our business,” said Yasemin Gür Solmaz, Ramsey-KİP Member of the Board of the Directors, Responsible for Operations, Gürmen Group.

“Dassault Systèmes’ 15 years of fashion industry experience and the 3DEXPERIENCE platform offer a new, digital approach to collaborative innovation for on-trend and on-time collections that can create value,” said Chris Colyer, Vice President, Consumer Goods and Retail Industry, Dassault Systèmes.  “We are seeing more and more apparel companies of all sizes in all markets adopt this approach and its depth of functionalities, for maximum visibility across seasons, categories, products and variations.”
