Basketball apparel retailer UNK NBA Europe Limited has signed with Datel for a small rental service of clothing business management solution Protex.

The system will manage sales order processing, purchasing, inventory and distribution.

Juliana Rovai, operations manager at UNK NBA, said: "We had been looking for a system for a while, but did not find the right solution until we met Datel. Our key requirements were that the system was user friendly, with a matrix at the core of the system as we need to manage products by colour, size and fit. The Protex ERP system provided us with these.

"Access to such leading-edge technology for such a low number of users was achievable through the Datel ASP service - basically we rent the software and hardware from Datel for a monthly fee."
