What does it take to custom-make a man’s suit in just 10 days and deliver one to 350,000 customers every year? Seriously seamless communication between everyone from the suppliers to the sales floor. That was the constant challenge facing Jamie Bragg, EVP of Operations for The Men’s Wearhouse, Inc., a growing retail clothing empire in North America.
Jamie knew that further growth required a 21st Century communication platform that could get its 17,000 employees, 1000+ stores, 11 distribution centers, 24 hub locations, 5 office locations, and multiple brands, all on the same page. All of the time.
The company needed to be more consistent with its messaging to their workforce both in the office and in the field. The Men’s Wearhouse needed a mobile-friendly information hub to increase interaction and more effectively get the word out about company initiatives and culture.
But it wasn’t enough to just install an ordinary communications system and expect employees to embrace it ― intranets and email systems simply aren’t that engaging. The Men’s Wearhouse, Inc. needed employees to want to use the system, and tibbr’s enterprise social network platform with its easy-to-use, intuitive interface fit the bill.
