Furniture manufacturer Signet relies on VlexPlus ERP software in the Cloud

“Furniture made in Germany” – this statement is everyday reality at Signet Wohnmöbel GmbH & Co. KG, headquartered in the Lichtenfels district in Upper Franconia. This family-run business, founded more than 20 years ago as a small production facility in an old shoe factory, has today grown into a globally successful manufacturer of modern, top quality designer furniture with high vertical integration and a character of functionality. The product portfolio ranges from sofa beds via suites, couches, chairs, stools to accompanying accessories. The company has a staff contingent of 75 and occupies a production hall of more than 2 400 square meters. In its production, the company expressly relies on its own network, comprising of regional manufacturers and selected suppliers.

Initial situation

ERP system at the limit of its capacities

The furniture manufacturer’s comprehensive range, its lack of flexibility in production and growing customer demands pushed the previous system to the limits of its ability. In 2010, Management therefore decided to replace the old and inconsistent system, which had grown and become administratively complex over the years, with a state-of-the-art, Web-based and flexible “next generation” ERP system.

Decision-making process

Management convinced through Web technology and continuous variant logic

What the customer says

Signet Wohnmöbel GmbH & Co. KG

“ We can also use VlexPlus on demand and have at all times the option of aligning our solutions to suit our actual requirements. We don’t need to create our own IT infrastructure or employ own IT staff, we don’t need high capital commitments for licensing or hardware and the running cost of operations remain constant and can be budgeted for. VlexPlus allows us to focus fully on the development, manufacture and sales of top quality furniture”
