Meet Tim Berryman, Head of Business Systems and Development at Rectella.

Rectella, historically a manufacturer – has moved into the retail space selling home furnishings including curtains and bedding through its Julian Charles brand.  Our story began 70 years ago when Julian Greibach opened his first Lancashire-based textile business in 1947. By the mid-1980s the Company, then named Rectella, had become one of the largest manufacturers of home textiles in the UK.  The second and third generations of the family have continued to drive the business forward, building on its rich British heritage and intrinsic family values, evolving it in to the destination multi-channel home furnishings retailer that it has become today.

"With the ultimate goal of driving sales and some very aggressive targets in place for the next few years, we needed a solution that was flexible enough to grow with us, and Epicor provided us with this," said Tim Berryman.

Hear the Rectella story on Tuesday during Insights in the session "Harnessing the Amazon Effect: Build a Future-Proof Digital Commerce Strategy."
