FAMA offers Tendam’s (formerly Grupo Cortefiel) maintenance department a tool designed to enhance the efficiency of day-to-day operations in handling notifications for its approximately 830 retail locations in Spain and Mexico.

The client: Tendam Global Fashion Retail Group

Tendam stands out as one of Europe's prominent fashion companies within the specialty chain sector. Established in Madrid in 1880, the company has a global presence in 80 countries with 1,836 outlets. The transition from the former Grupo Cortefiel to its current name, Tendam, occurred on April 17, 2018.

Presently, Tendam boasts a diverse portfolio of brands, including Women'secret, Springfield, Cortefiel, Pedro del Hierro, Hoss Intropia, Slowlove, High Spirits, Dash and Stars, and OOTO. Additionally, the company manages the Fifty Outlet stores and collaborates with over 125 third-party brands through its multi-brand platforms. To facilitate its operations, Tendam has established international buying offices in Spain, Hong Kong, and India. The distribution network is centralized in the logistics platform in Madrid, complemented by another facility in Hong Kong. These centers efficiently supply both owned stores and franchises worldwide.

The Maintenance department at Tendam faced the challenge of consolidating all maintenance-related notifications for its dispersed points of sale into a unified system. Initially focused on locations in Spain and later extending to those in Mexico, this initiative followed the success of the project in Spain. The goal was to streamline the dispatch of notifications to the respective Facility Services providers.

Previously, Tendam relied on a tool provided by its Facility Services (FS) provider, resulting in a cumbersome workload for the Maintenance Department. Moreover, there was a significant risk of data loss during the transition to a new FS provider. Given these challenges, Tendam recognized the necessity of implementing appropriate technology to enhance maintenance notification management processes, ensuring better control and optimization.

The solution

In response to the identified needs, the decision was made to implement the comprehensive Facility Management tool, FAMA AFM, in its cloud computing mode (Software as a Service), based on the following modules:

Point of Sale Inventory

Report generation

Document management

Corrective maintenance

Supplier channel

Request channel

Business process management

Web portal and communication channel

«The FAMA AFM Technology Platform has provided Tendam with a unified channel for comprehensive corrective maintenance management, streamlining notifications for almost 800 stores and subsequent management by Facilities Services providers. Additionally, it gave us the crucial advantage of integrating subsequent data analysis into a single platform, essential for a Maintenance Department handling such a large volume of management processes»
