Copenhagen-based fashion retailer Bruuns Bazaar has extended its investment in collaborative product development software from Geac.

The software from RunTime, Geac's specialist division serving the apparel and footwear industry, will now been extended to be used by designers and product developers at its head office in Copenhagen.

Bruuns has been using Geac software to handle product development since 1999. Tight integration between its PLM system and its enterprise resource planning software from Navision (now part of Microsoft) means there is no need to re-do manual work.

Bruuns Bazaar's products include high-fashion clothing, casual jeans wear, shoes and accessories. The company has 15 stores throughout Western Europe, including outlets within leading retailers like Selfridges.

Geac is a global enterprise software company that provides technology products and services to help organisations do more with less in an increasingly competitive environment.
