Patchworks X The Simply Group

Patchworks X The Simply Group

April 10, 2019

Almost two years on from their first integration, long-term customers The Simply Group have added NetSuite’s ERP to their Patchworks platform. Now, with Shopify Plus, Peoplevox and NetSuite all connected to our leading integration platform, The Simply Group have more visibility over their data than ever before.

About the brand

The Simply Group is a collective of four clothing, accessory and equipment stores, with a physical shop based in Faversham, Kent. The brand caters to a wide range of leisure activities, including scuba diving, skiing, fitness, swimming, camping and hiking.

Whether it’s beachwear, camping equipment or scuba gear, The Simply Group stock everything you could ever need to explore the great outdoors.  

Previous integrations

The Simply Group joined the Patchworks family back in 2017, when they needed help integrating their warehouse management system (WMS) with their online stores.

The company have four ecommerce sites, as well as an electronic point of sale system in their physical shop, all powered by Shopify Plus. So when it came to connecting Peoplevox’s WMS with their Shopify stores, they needed a connector that could sync between their warehouse and all of their sites.

That’s why they chose to implement our leading integration platform.

By connecting Peoplevox and Shopify Plus through the Patchworks platform, The Simply Group can enjoy a holistic overview of their essential business data. Information like order data, stock figures and returns updates are automatically synced between the two systems, eliminating the need for manual inputting.

Now, The Simply Group have added NetSuite to the mix.

New technology

When they moved to NetSuite from their custom-built enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, The Simply Group knew they wanted to integrate NetSuite with their other software. So, using our innovative NetSuite connector, we plugged their ERP into their existing Patchworks platform, creating a robust IT infrastructure that’s designed to handle their growth.

To make sure everything went as smoothly as possible during the launch of their newest integration, our Head of Engineering headed down to The Simply Group warehouse. After spending two days supporting the Simply team during the launch, everything was up and running like a well-oiled machine.

Alongside this project, we also moved The Simply Group over to Tapestry, the latest version of our code meaning their systems can process data faster than ever before.

“Patchworks have been our key partner in our recent systems re-platform, connecting our new warehouse (Peoplevox), financial (Netsuite ERP) and sales (Shopify Plus) systems together. During the project, Patchworks were a constant source of knowledge and support which resulted in a smooth go live. Since then, there has been a fantastic level of post go-live support and ultimately, we’ve got a system that meets our business needs and will scale with us as we grow.” – Nick Hurst, IT Manager for The Simply Group

We’d like to say a big thanks to The Simply Group for choosing us as their integration partner, and to our dedicated Patchworkers for all the hard work they put into the project!
