Grotto, designer of Gas-branded jeans and clothing, has adopted QlikView, QlikTech's innovative business analysis application, to help strengthen and expand its international sales network.

QlikView allows any Grotto employee interactively access and analyse sales, customer, product and store data from wherever they are, enabling them to do their jobs faster and more effectively.

Grotto chief information officer Carlo Pase said: "QlikTech has had a tremendous impact on our company. We have about 300 employees working at our main office plus another 1,500 colleagues who are divided up among the branches and manufacturing sites abroad.

"QlikView empowers our employees with access to the information they need to do their jobs better."

Gas clothing is distributed throughout more than 3,500 retail stores globally.
