A company best known for its whimsical neckties and smiling pink whale logo, vineyard vines was founded in 1998 on Martha's Vineyard when brothers Shep and Ian Murray cut their ties with corporate America to start making ties. The company also offers a variety of clothing and accessories operating nearly 70 retail stores and growing. When vineyard vines decided to implement a store-wide platform in 2009 to keep pace with rapid sales growth and new store openings, they turned to RPE as a leading JDA Software consulting services and solutions provider to support the company's long term strategy.
