Spectra Collection

Control important for fast-growing manufacturer

Spectra Collection has been defined by growth—growth that continues today. At the same time, the company has strived to maintain the personal touch and close relationship it has with its customers. Spectra Collection has approximately 100 employees, and among its clients are several of the leading companies in the interior design and furniture industry in Sweden.

In the mid-2000’s, Spectra Collection decided to replace its legacy ERP system. The company quickly turned to Jeeves ERP as the answer, an integrated, highly flexible, end-to-end solution. 
 
”An important reason for the investment in Jeeves ERP was our ambition to get a more effective control over every step of the operation, from purchase to production to final delivery,” said Annika Stridberg, CFO and system manager at Spectra Collection. ”Spectra has a close relationship with a number of very large companies with demanding expectations for on-time delivery and customer-focused service, as examples. With Jeeves ERP, we get more effective procedures that make us better able to respond to our customers’ demands, even as customer service has been developed.”
 
One of the company’s success factors is the venture into more customer-adapted production, though this is a strategy that is very demanding. ”We work close to our customers to accomplish creative solutions according to every customer’s individual need,” said Bert Martinsson, marketing manager at Spectra Collection. ”The customer-unique production makes high demands on our ability to both adjust and continuously streamline our processes. Together with the Jeeves consulting team, we work continuously to streamline and develop these processes.”
