Lawson Software has signed a contract with leading New Zealand footwear brand, Kumfs. Under the contract, Kumfs will acquire the Lawson M3 Enterprise Management System along with Lawson Business Intelligence and related maintenance and services. The contract was signed during Lawson's second quarter of fiscal 2008, which ended Nov. 30, 2007.

Based in Auckland, New Zealand, Kumfs has been designing and making a wide range of women's shoes since 1946. Since then, the business has grown steadily with 40 stores currently in operation across the Australian and New Zealand region, establishing the Kumfs brand as a household name. Internationally, the popular footwear brand has earned a strong reputation for its comfort, style and quality.

Under the new agreement, Kumfs will deploy the Lawson M3 solution for the fashion industry, incorporating Finance, Supply Chain, Manufacturing and Warehouse Mobility modules.

“We were looking for a system that is well proven in the fashion industry and able to accommodate the complexity of a footwear manufacturing business such as ours,” said Peter Scott, operations manager for Kumfs. “As we design, manufacture and stock a wide variety of footwear in many different styles, sizes and widths, we believe the Lawson M3 solution will assist us in meeting the needs and demands of our customers.”

During its most recent fiscal year, Kumfs recorded a 14 percent increase in sales. It also recently celebrated a number of successes, including the one-year anniversary of its first American store in Fresno, Calif., and the opening of a new store in Hong Kong to answer demand for high-quality fashionable shoes.
