PA Maghreb has entered the C2TM circuit

The association’s mission is to position the offer of local companies in the textile sector

PA Maghreb has officially entered the C2TM circuit (Cluster of Moroccans Textiles Techniques), an association that boasts among its members important Moroccan companies from both the public and private sector, as well as education and research institutes.
The association’s mission is to position the offer of local companies in the textile sector and to promote important collaborative projects in this field.

The collaboration with C2TM and ESITH (Ecole Supérieure des Industries du Textile et Habillement) had already started in 2018, with an event to present PA Group’s offering.

During 2019 PA Maghreb staff completed the implementation of the JUST MES system inside the ESITH weaving room and, in December 2019, a free seminar was organised to illustrate the properties of JUST MES solution.

During the seminar, run by both PA Maghreb staff (Alessio FASANO – CEO, Davide GIUSTINA – Board Member, Ikram ZEIFRI – Sales Manager) and other figures with proven experience in the sector (Mr. Nabil NAJIM – General Manager of C2TM / Cluster des Textiles Techniques Marocains; Mr. Redouane LACHGAR – Textile Consultant; Pr. Dr. Mohamed DALAL –Teacher, Researcher and Consultant / ESITH), the advantages of technological innovation driven by the Industry 4.0 process were discussed. The speakers focused on which tools can facilitate the digitisation of the supply chain and the optimization of the production processes in the textile and fashion sectors.

The closing that integrates PA Group with Retelit has been completed

The operational procedures for the integration of the two companies have already started

On January 14th 2020, the shareholders of Partners Associates S.p.A., the parent company of PA GROUP, in execution of the preliminary contract signed on October 22nd 2019, to which reference is made for further details, have signed the definitive contract for the sale of the shares representing 100% of the share capital to Retelit Digital Services S.p.A.

“We are delighted to launch this project, which today sees the creation of a unique entity on the Italian ICT market, bringing on stream integrated and tailor-made solutions to meet the needs of Italian businesses on entirely Group managed platforms.” – says Ennio Baracetti, President of PA Group – “In recent months – since the signing of the binding agreement – we have already begun to take the first steps towards integration, meeting with the representatives of all company divisions and have quickly understood the close fit of the working groups and the expectations for the success of the collaboration in practice.”

Dario Pardi, President of Retelit, commented: “We are greatly satisfied to have concluded this transaction that projects Retelit into the future, making it a Group capable of playing a leading role in Italy and beyond, with a complete range of solutions both for the infrastructure and digital services and ICT sectors.  I would like to thank all those who helped to successfully conclude this transaction, from the management to the operating personnel and wish also to underline the close collaboration between the employees of Retelit and PA Group, which will be key to this merger’s success “.

The transaction, as already communicated on October 22nd 2019, sees the creation of a leading Italian ICT integrated services operator providing both infrastructure and value-added services (approximately 53% infrastructure and 47% of services), and counting on the offerings and skills of two perfectly complementary companies. The uniqueness of the new entity lies in it being able to natively cover, i.e. on its own platform, the entire ICT services value chain.

The solutions that the new entity will be able to offer shall cut across many sectors, as is the case with the offer, among others, of Cybersecurity, Multicloud, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, CRM, ERP and MES to Digital Marketing, System Integration and Data Center, but also vertical propositions for individual markets from Healthcare, Automotive and Textile/Apparel to Retail, Finance and Public Sector Services.

JUST MES, the software suite developed by Up Solutions for the textile and apparel sector, will be presented at ITMA 2019 with its new release

The quadrennial event, where the key players of the industry and service sector converge, will see the debut of the “Info Point” module, designed to monitor operations through mobile devices

The next edition of ITMA will be held from 20th to 26th June, this year in Barcelona – Spain. At the event, where the main players of the textile industry and service sector gather to discover and explore cutting-edge proposals in the various segments of the supply chain, Up Solutions will reveal the new release of JUST MES, the suite composed of four integrated solutions for the design, planning, monitoring and control of the production chain. In a nutshell, it caters for the entire production flow of manufacturing companies specialized in textiles and fashion. The release will specifically concern the “just monitoring” solution, which is dedicated to the collection and control phases of the production data.

The key element of the new version of just monitoring is the “Info Point” module which, through the APP, designed by Up Solutions and available for all systems, will allow simple and immediate monitoring of all operations, from tablets and smartphones, in complete mobility; hence it will no longer be necessary to install it on fixed stations within the department. “To be always aligned with the needs that our customers express – commented the CEO Davide Giustina – we are constantly projecting towards product updates and with this release, just monitoring actually enters the online world, because the solution allows the installation also on platforms such as Azure: this is an advantage for customers who are planning to migrate to Cloud systems.”

Also designed to be used in complete mobility, both inside and outside the company, the other novelty that will be unveiled at Up Solutions stand at ITMA is the new reporting Dashboard based on PowerBI.

The location to meet Up Solutions at ITMA is: A102, Hall 8.1 (North Access)
