Northern Ireland-based work wear maker The Corporate Wardrobe has purchased business management and management information systems from Manchester-based IT firm XeBusiness.

The Corporate Wardrobe will deploy these systems as part of its business development strategy, which aims to double sales over the next two years.

"We chose XeBusiness as our IT partner for a variety of reasons," Corporate Wardrobe CEO Harry McLeese said.

"(These) included their track record of successful implementations in this segment of the industry and the applicability of their software to what we require for our fast-growing business.

"Cost and ROI were also key issues in the decision-making process."
