PRI Global, a renowned IT solutions company, recently partnered with a leading retail client to streamline their operations and enhance efficiency through a comprehensive Peoplesoft implementation. This case study highlights the client’s situation, challenges faced, and the remarkable results achieved with PRI Global’s expert guidance and support.
The retail client, a prominent player in the industry, operated a vast network of stores and suppliers across multiple regions.
