Created in 1937 by Jean and Marcel Dutel, Dutel S.A.S. is a world leader in Jacquard weaving. Designs are created from its head office near Lyon in eastern France, then woven in the Loire to be delivered nationally or exported to more than 70 countries around the world.
All applications in the Dutel group have been developed exclusively using CA 2E Synon over DDS. A turning point came in 2015 with the imminent retirement of key staff, future cost of Synon upgrade, and difficulty finding Synon skills.
Dutel seized the opportunity of automatically converting their Synon applications to RPG free using ARCAD Modernization as a Service, saving them 30% in maintenance costs.
