Digitalization and ERP Transformation at ETERNA: A Conversation with CEO Henning Gerbaulet

With 160 years of corporate history, ETERNA is an excellent example of how tradition and forward-looking strategies can be successfully combined. In the interview, which we had the opportunity to conduct as part of our x4in summit 2023, Henning Gerbaulet, CEO & Managing Partner of ETERNA Mode GmbH, provided us with an exciting insight into the company’s recent developments and plans. Topics such as the impact of the COVID-19 crisis and dealing with rising costs were discussed, as well as the ongoing digital transformation, particularly in the fashion industry, and the evolution of the ERP landscape.

In the interview, the modernization of the IT infrastructure and the transition to Microsoft D365 as the central ERP system were also discussed in the context of an overall strategy to enhance process efficiency and future-proof the company.

The conversation gave us the opportunity to learn more about the innovative strategies of an established company that proactively adapts to the demands of the modern business world.

Thank you very much for the insightful conversation, Mr. Gerbaulet!
