Gymboree selects Hybris to enhance omnichannel shopping experience across brands

BY Staff Writer

New York — Hybris announced that The Gymboree Corp. has selected the hybris platform to enhance its e-commerce efforts and provide a cohesive omnichannel shopping experience across its three brands, Gymboree, Crazy 8, and Janie and Jack.

“We selected hybris based on the breadth and agility of its solution, the company’s alignment with our multichannel vision, and its demonstrated ability to be rapidly implemented. We have very ambitious goals and are confident that hybris will enable us to meet them,” said David Strobelt, VP IT and logistics, The Gymboree Corp.

In its selection process, Gymboree assumed the torrid pace of change in multichannel would continue for many years going forward.

“We sought a framework upon which we could adapt and compete in fast changing conditions,” Strobelt said. “Out of all the commerce platforms we looked at, we felt hybris’ solution offered us the open architecture, scalability, TCO and agility to power a cross-channel shopping experience without introducing IT complexity into our organization.”

“We are thrilled to be working with such a well-respected retailer in the U.S. as Gymboree,” said Steven Kramer, North America president of hybris. “We look forward to helping Gymboree deliver a superior and enhanced shopping experience to its customers.”

Walmart launches Women in Factories empowerment program

BY Staff Writer

Bentonville, Ark. — Walmart announced it has launched its Women in Factories program, a five-year initiative that will empower 60,000 women working in factories that supply products to Walmart and other retailers in India, Bangladesh, China and Central America.

The program, which is being implemented in collaboration with local NGOs, will teach critical life skills related to communication, hygiene, reproductive health, occupational health and safety, identifying personal strengths and gender sensitivity. Up to 8,000 women will also receive leadership training to develop the work and life skills necessary for personal and career development.

The program will be rolled out to 150 factories in India, Bangladesh, China and Central America over the next five years, initially launching in Bangladesh and India in 2012. The program was designed and will be implemented in collaboration with CARE in Bangladesh and SWASTI in India. The program will be evaluated by Northwestern University in partnership with DAI and Mission Measurement.
