International fashion house Versace is to use Raymark's Xpert Series retail solutions as the point-of-sale and merchandising system for its North American and Asian operations.

The Italian parent company of the Versace Group, Gianni Versace SpA, designs, markets and distributes luxury clothing, accessories, fragrances, makeup and home furnishings under brands such as Versace, Versus, Versace Jeans Couture, Versace Classic V2 and Versace Sport.

It will use the Xpert Series to channel information throughout the company, manage its multi-store operation and provide the necessary data to make key decisions.

Montreal headquartered Raymark recently won a Microsoft's "RAD (Retail Application Developer) Award 2002" for its wireless handheld mobile retail management system.
