Gruppo PA has a global presence, with fifteen offices in five countries (USA, Italy, Turkey, China, and Hong Kong). Gruppo PA has resources around the globe, with more than 400 employees, 3,000 clients, and annual revenue of $49MM. The company has always been dedicated to the apparel and textile industry, with successful software implementations in the textile, apparel, fashion, and retail sectors. In 2013 alone, the company provided amazing customer experiences for over 100 Million users who were collectively responsible for the production of over 1 Billion garments.
PA Group USA can trace its roots back to 2006 when the first Apparel & Textile Industry Accelerator for Dynamics AX was launched as a result of Microsoft’s Industry Builder initiative. Through the Industry Builder initiative, Microsoft invested in and partnered with a number of companies in a variety of industries to provide tailored solutions for various vertical industries. Gruppo PA partnered with Porini, a provider of IT systems for textile companies since 1968, to develop the Apparel & Textile Industry Accelerator for Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0. When the solution was ready for launch and implementation internationally, PA Group USA was born to offer consulting, sales, and implementation services for North America. Since then, Gruppo PA and Porini have remained close partners, developing Apparel & Textile solutions compatible with new AX Versions as they are released. This proprietary solution has revolutionized the ERP landscape for a number of industries including textile, apparel, fashion, retail, furniture, and floorcoverings.
PA Group USA has been committed to partnership since its inception, working with leading software developers in hopes of providing a one-stop shop for apparel and textile companies in need of software solutions. Our current partners include:
- Up Solutions
- Data Masons
Part of PA Group’s corporate commitment and growth strategy revolves around employing the most talented individuals who make up the very essence of PA Group. We have a large number of talented consultants with a broad knowledge base of Dynamics AX, both functional and technical, as well as most Microsoft business productivity products. Our consultants also bring specialized expertise to the table, helping PA Group to provide well-rounded implementation teams to serve the needs of a unique and varied customer base. Areas of consultant expertise include Finance, Trade & Logistics, Production, Retail, and System Development.
In addition, our consultants bring a deep understanding of the industries we serve to provide consulting services that are as tailored to each industry as our software solutions. Whether it is years of industry experience or a university degree in textile science, our employees have an ability to connect with our clients to understand their core business processes. This knowledge allows us to locate pain points and problem areas, and to work with our customers to ensure successful implementation projects.
