Success Story: Indygena

Innovative, fast-growing and internationally renowned, Indygena Inc. is a leading figure in the outdoor industry, a key driver of job creation in the Greater Montreal area.

The SME manufactures its products in Montreal and is committed to creating ethical and smart clothing that offers quality and durability. Beyond its dedicated search for environmentally compatible solutions, the company is also highly invested in originative in design. This approach has kept Indygena at the forefront of the fashion industry and has reinforced its competitiveness against foreign competitors.

Challenges

So as to sustain its strong growth over the long term, Indygena recognized that its financial system needed to be modernized to:

  • Improve monitoring of its overall activities and exercise greater control of its resources: customize a solution for specific processes such as purchase orders for delivery production and management
  • Reduce the risks and costs related to IT interventions: recurring environment maintenance and upgrades demand a significant amount of internal IT resources
  • Allow easy two-way integration with complementary applications like the Microsoft suite

Solution

Following a systematic selection process, Indygena chose to partner with the ACCEO and Acumatica platform team, as the top-ranked solution providing:

  • A robust and flexible financial management suite allowing for the complete integration of operations
  • ACCEO’s extensive know-how in the support and implementation of integrated solutions
  • A state-of-the-art, 100% cloud-based technology that supports fast rollout
  • Two-way integration with the Microsoft suite

Results

One year later, along with receiving investment tax credits and training subsidies, the company is now fully experiencing the benefits of implementing the Acumatica platform with:

  • Improved operational performance: data consistency, reduced errors resulting from single data entry, greater oversight across all supply chain activities
  • A decentralized workforce with access to information according to employee role: access to the right information at the right time to make the best business decisions
  • Greater control over the risks and costs related to IT interventions: In a one-and-a-half-year period, no breakdowns, no maintenance, and resource use is maximized by leveraging a stable and agile environment.
« Within the context of COVID-19 confinement and telecommuting, Acumatica’s cloud computing platform has made us more agile and allowed our company to continue to operate as usual with a decentralized workforce. »
