Velocity Technology Solutions Migrates EYELEVEL to Fully Managed Cloud

Leading Global Provider of Retail Displays and Store Fixtures Upgrades and Moves Business Applications Into the Cloud Through Velocity Universal Cloud Services

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 14, 2014) - Velocity Technology Solutions, Inc., (Velocity), a leader in cloud application hosting for enterprise and business software, today announced that EYELEVEL, a leading international provider of permanent retail displays and store fixtures, has selected Velocity to host and manage its new enterprise resource planning (ERP) business software applications within Velocity's virtual private cloud.

Founded 12 years ago, EYELEVEL today serves leading global brands including adidas, Nike, North Face, Vans, Calvin Klein and Crocs, operating from its European headquarters in Prague, Czech Republic and U.S. base in Portland, Oregon, with additional operations in Australia, Brazil, China, Russia, and the United Kingdom. The rapidly growing company, acquired by Chicago-based InnerWorkings last July, realized that it was time to replace its nearly decade-old legacy system with a software and services platform better suited for its expanding international business.

EYELEVEL's move to Velocity Universal Cloud Services includes:

  • Comprehensive implementation and consulting services for Infor M3 software
  • Managed Application Services, offering application lifecycle support and day-to-day application management for Infor M3 and several other software solutions EYELEVEL has integrated with it
  • Managed Disaster Recovery, including plan design, implementation, fully-managed application recovery and testing for the Infor M3 applications
  • 24/7 access to experienced, technical engineers and functional application support to help EYELEVEL fully leverage the capabilities of its Infor M3 software investment

"We chose Velocity to help us implement Infor M3 in order to allow us to continue to grow, serve clients, close deals and take us to the next level, without losing momentum in our business during the change process," said Tomas Baca, Managing Director of EYELEVEL. "The Velocity team brought us the technical expertise, experience and confidence we needed in order to meet our aggressive timeline," he added. EYELEVEL chose Velocity to assist with a rapid, 12-month application and infrastructure upgrade, starting at headquarters and then followed by rollout to different branches internationally.

"The fast and demanding world of retail requires applications and infrastructure that provide the support and insights companies like EYELEVEL need to be nimble in their business and stay ahead of the curve," said Lee Blakemore, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Velocity. "We look forward to helping EYELEVEL as they continue to deliver innovative products and services to leading retail brands."
