Global Fashion Retailer Invests in Infor CloudSuite PLM for Fashion to Boost Agility and Drive Rapid Growth
NEW YORK – July 23, 2019 – Infor, a global leader in business cloud software specialised by industry, today announced that global fashion retailer LC Waikiki has selected Infor CloudSuite PLM for Fashion, built on Infor OS and deployed via software-as-a-service (SaaS), to help enhance visibility, boost forecasting and support rapid growth.
LC Waikiki selected Infor due to the need for agility to react and respond to market trends more effectively. The decision was based on the application’s rich user experience, its ability to scale, dedicated capabilities for private brand fashion retailers, as well as the professionalism and knowledge of the team.
Because the application is deployed via Infor’s SaaS, LC Waikiki can focus on growing its business and helping users drive greater speed and business value from the solution, rather than spending time supporting and maintaining it.
“The $1.3 trillion fashion industry is enormously competitive and going through significant change. To support growth and efficiency, it is crucial for fashion brands to have systems that enable them to react to the latest catwalk trends and quickly translate them into new collections and styles and to online clicks and store sales,” comments Jason Berry, VP Retail & Fashion, EMEA, Infor. “LC Waikiki is capitalising on Infor’s Fashion PLM capabilities to enhance visibility, collaboration and drive rapid growth — to steal a march on its competitors.”
“Having a dedicated end-to-end platform designed to support the specific dynamics of fashion product lifecycle management is crucial to win market share in a highly competitive industry,” comments Serafettin Ozer, chief digital officer, LC Waikiki. “LC Waikiki is the market leader in 15 of the 46 countries where it operates. The extensive capabilities and intuitive interface of Infor CloudSuite PLM for Fashion mean that we can continue our growth journey with the very best tools and absolute confidence in our performance. Product lifecycle management is a critical process for our business, and therefore our project with Infor is highly strategic.”
