Maya Maya is a Swiss fashion brand of outdoor clothing, selling specialized apparel for skiing, mountain-climbing, running, fitness and leisure. The company runs four stores in different countries across Europe.
Looking for a complete solution
The company started to expand when they still had no POS or ERP system in place. Maya Maya immediately realized that the lack of an IT system was making the business difficult to manage – and the problems would only get worse as the brand grew. The retailer spent over two years looking for the right software solution which would serve all their needs as regards sales, back office, warehouse management and integration to their webstore. On top of that, Maya Maya had an added challenge: all this had to be done at an international scale. Finally, Maya Maya wished to implement the new system in the cloud, in a subscription-based model in order to lower the cost of IT equipment and to be able to flexibly manage the number of POS devices depending on needs on a monthly basis.

An implementation in the cloud
