When IT and textiles
became friends

The textile industry and IT have never really seen to eye.


For fashion people, IT is troublesome and expensive and can
never do what it is supposed to do. And if you want to change
anything, you often have to pay for expensive consultants and
tedious hours of training.

On the other hand, IT people have difficulties understanding
the fashion business. Their conventional systems are
difficult to adapt to the special needs of the textile
industry.

Good ideas and noble intentions often drown in financial trifles.
In 2008, a programmer and a textile man decided to stop
fighting and sat down at the same side of the table.

They wanted to develop a brand new system from scratch.

A system that manages and enhances the entire process
from sketchbook to clothes rack and assists the users
instead of holding them back with downtime, errors
and illogical procedures.

The result was SPY which is not a financial management
system, but a tool for the fashion business. SPY was
developed for a specific clothes firm, but was so
successful that it now has a life as an independent system.
Dan Skovsbøll og Jesper Bjerregaard The idea of SPY is to make the individual user better at his or her work. How can the buyer improve, how can the salesperson improve and how can the warehouse assistant improve?

At the same time, SPY breaks up with the normal financing of IT. As SPY user you only pay a fixed monthly subscription fee. And SPY naturally works on the platforms that clothes people use: laptop, tablet and telephone.

SPY was developed by its users – internal and external salespeople, designers, draughtsmen, accountants, warehouse assistants, buyers, producers, sales managers, purchasing managers, financial managers, customers, warehouse managers, and managing directors.
