Mindtree to support Esprit's SAP applications suite
Nov '14
Esprit, an international fashion brand, has selected Mindtree, a global technology solutions provider, to deliver IT solutions to support Esprit’s SAP applications suite.

Esprit has selected Mindtree as its strategic partner to provide a SAP managed services delivery model for around 300 directly managed retail stores and over 7,500 wholesale points of sale in Europe.

As part of this multi-year contract, Mindtree will ensure the stability of Esprit’s SAP systems through early detection and resolution of system, functional, and process issues. In addition, Mindtree will maintain on-time availability of Esprit’s data and provide flexibility to IT management to meet their business needs. Most importantly, Mindtree will improve the processes service quality, allowing Esprit’s IT team to focus on their strategic business needs without having to worry about the reliability of their SAP systems, the company said.

Dr. Thomas Pirlein, Group CIO, Esprit said, “We sought a long-term managed services partner to bring efficiencies and technology leadership. Mindtree’s SAP managed services expertise, agility, collaborative culture and team leadership made them the ideal choice. Mindtree will play a key role in our efforts to gain long-term competitiveness with its technology leadership and deep understanding of trends shaping the future of retail.”

Radha R, executive vice president - retail, Mindtree said, “We took a business process view rather than a system centric view to provide Esprit the flexibility to achieve their goals in the highly competitive fashion retail space. We see this program as an important first step among many to come as part of Esprit's commitment to drive sustainable growth using technology.”

Mindtree helps retailers transform their technology to gain a 360-degree view of consumers and serve them across the entire purchase process. With greater visibility into the customer experience, Mindtree improves operational efficiencies, increases order fulfillment, and encourages collaboration between stores and supply chain partners, the company said in a statement.

Mindtree specializes in e-commerce, mobility, cloud enablement, digital transformation, business intelligence, data analytics, testing, infrastructure, EAI and ERP solutions.

Listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange since 1993, Esprit has headquarters in Germany and Hong Kong and markets its products under two brands, namely the Esprit brand and the edc brand. (GK)
