Canterbury to implement Lawson QuickStep Fashion

Lawson Software announced that Canterbury of New Zealand, a leading provider of athletic apparel, has signed a contract to implement Lawson QuickStep Fashion, a pre-configured enterprise software application created specifically for the needs of companies in the fashion industry.

The Lawson solution will help support the company's ambitious growth plans by aiding forecasting and planning, which can ultimately help improve overall performance and customer satisfaction. The application will run on an IBM System i platform. The contract was signed during Lawson's second quarter of fiscal 2008, which ended Nov. 30, 2007.

Canterbury of New Zealand built its foundations serving participants in club rugby. Its clothing lines are now sold globally. As a global sportswear brand owner with a design, source and distribute business model, Canterbury experienced substantial expansion in 2007 and its legacy systems could no longer support the company's ambitious growth plans.

These legacy systems were replaced by Lawson QuickStep Fashion, which will initially support more than 50 users and help increase productivity by helping to optimize supply chain management.

Canterbury of New Zealand began the project by using Lawson's Opportunity Analyzer tool. This evaluation service helped the management at Canterbury identify key business processes tied to profit improvement both for revenue attainment (improved sales) and cost containment (improved sales efficiency). These processes are among those that will be addressed through the Lawson QuickStep Fashion solution.
