LONDON & HONG KONG – Core Solutions, a leading provider of product lifecycle management, global sourcing and extended supply chain automation solutions for the retail industry, announced today that it has signed an agreement with El Corte Ingles to implement CBX to manage the group’s global order, supplier management, quality and compliance processes.
El Corte Ingles is the largest department store in Europe and fourth biggest in the world, with associated businesses such as hyper and supermarkets, fashion and DIY chains, including HiperCor, SuperCor, Sfera and Bricor. The group was looking for a solution that could unify the order follow-up process across categories, including soft lines and hard lines and allow merchandisers, quality functions and suppliers to work together more effectively.
“We chose CBX based on a strong reputation and unique capability in supporting workflow processes for both apparel and hard goods, on a true cloud platform,” said Patricia Gonzalez Molina, Trade Department Director, El Corte Ingles. “We are confident that CBX will help us to unify and automate our order to delivery workflow, ensure quality and compliance and improve our profitability.”
The CBX platform will support order follow-up processes between El Corte Ingles Sourcing in Asia and several global business units, including El Corte Ingles, HiperCor, Sfera and Bricor. CORE will implement their latest cloud-enabled CBX5 software, which is a true cloud platform, offering the power of an enterprise system without the need for heavy investment in hardware and headcount.
“We are extremely excited to begin working with El Corte Ingles, which is one of the largest and most respected retailers in Europe,” said Michael Hung, CEO of Core Solutions. “The visibility and collaborative capability provided by our CBX cloud solution will help El Corte Ingles to streamline and grow their business – a key objective we set for each of our clients.”
