From brick & mortar to ecommerce in a flash
You’ve likely shopped at their stores or bought their products at a department store: PVH is the company that owns brands like Calvin Klein, TOMMY HILFIGER, Van Heusen, IZOD, ARROW, Warner’s, Olga, Geoffrey Beene and True&Co.
In 2019, PVH had a massive $9.9 billion in revenue, a significant percentage of which is direct-to-consumer retail.
Investing for the future
In 2017, PVH experienced a mammoth snowstorm that caused everyone in the New York and New Jersey area to work from home. As Eileen Mahoney, EVP and CIO for PVH says, talking network infrastructure was a difficult but necessary conversation to have during that time.
Internal and external security is key
Enabling remote work for PVH’s almost 10,000 office associates associates was a success due to the right collaboration and security tools. When PVH suddenly had to fully enable remote workers from thousands of site locations, Mahoney and her team immediately thought of the security aspect.
Collaborating like never before
“We are doing some things that we wouldn’t have done if we were in the office,” says Mahoney, Having global calls to connect everybody together, it’s really enabling us to rethink how we’ll operate as a company even when we come out of the pandemic. It has really shown that with the right tools and technology, your operating model can change and change for the better. It’s allowed collaborations that we probably wouldn’t have had if we weren’t able to transition overnight.
