ANAHEIM, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Wolverine Worldwide, one of the world’s leading footwear and apparel distributors, which provides marketing and licensing for iconic brands such as Keds, Merrell and Sperry was looking for a way to use more technology to create a holistic transformation of the company. Today, one in every four pairs of shoes is bought online. Wolverine’s digital transformation was intended to make sure that the company could serve its customer expectations for speed and selection in this new world order. Working with Citrix and Microsoft, Coretek Services, an IT consulting company, systems integrator and managed services provider developed a global solution for virtualized 3D apps hosted in Azure that helped Wolverine accelerate time to market for new consumer products.
Enabling global product development designers to work together more efficiently was a key component of the implementation. Wolverine had a 3D on-premises application that was used for 3D modeling for 15 people in the U.S. headquarters. As other locations adopted this application, an on-premises solution would no longer work for its global locations in London and Asia because of network limitations. Coretek introduced a Citrix secure digital workspace solution in Microsoft Azure that used XenApp with HDX technology along with NetScaler. Coretek took Wolverine from architectural design to implementation and rollout in eight weeks, giving them a fluid and efficient end-user experience that allowed designers to collaborate more efficiently worldwide. The traditional process took 425 days from idea to having a shoe in a consumer’s hands. By using the Citrix technology, Wolverine can now do that same process in 140 days.
In recognition of the successful work that they’ve done with Wolverine Worldwide, Coretek has been selected as the winner of the fifth annual Citrix Innovation Award for Partners.
