BAKS, east-Europe leader of cable management trays systems had successfully grown on the original market with a plan to expand operations abroad. Unstructured product portfolio and distributed product-related information and assets required a complete redesign and development of the whole software environment. Right Information suggested the new product hierarchy and designed the software for production and product development as well as for eCommerce purposes.
