Oracle Retail supports Abercrombie & Fitch expansion plans

As part of its strategic relationship with Oracle, Abercrombie & Fitch has implemented Oracle Retail merchandising and stores applications to support its international expansion plans and long-term growth strategy.

The Oracle Retail merchandising and stores applications are being rolled out across all of the leading fashion retailer's brands including Abercrombie & Fitch, abercrombie, Hollister, RUEHL and Gilly Hicks.

To support its international expansion strategy, the retailer has adopted a centralized business model and is deploying a single instance of the Oracle Retail Merchandising System across the globe.

As part of this effort, Abercrombie & Fitch implemented Oracle Fusion Middleware SOA suite components including the Oracle BPEL Process Manager to orchestrate the data exchanges between the Oracle merchandising environment, its legacy systems and other new systems.

Abercrombie & Fitch has realized immediate value from the Oracle Retail Merchandising System as a result of better data integrity, more efficient and accurate entry and ease of maintenance around the purchase order process.

Abercrombie & Fitch is also implementing Oracle Retail Point-of-Service, Oracle Retail Central Office and Oracle's PeopleSoft Enterprise Time & Labor across all of its brands to help maximize store profitability as well as to provide the scalable and flexible architecture needed to support the growing demands of the business.

Oracle Retail Point-of-Service is currently live in more than 20 stores and the retailer is rolling it out in all new stores opened across the globe this year. Abercrombie & Fitch expects the Oracle Retail stores application to be deployed at all store locations by the end of next year.

Abercrombie & Fitch's implementation of Oracle Retail Point-of-Service includes an on-screen keyboard and a streamlined user experience to support the retailer's unique in-store experience.

The retailer is currently in phase two of its merchandising and stores implementation. This phase will be live in the Fall of 2009 to support the international opening of stores in Milan and Tokyo.

The Oracle Retail applications are being implemented and managed on Oracle Enterprise Linux to help provide a more flexible, reliable, and cost effective solution. The retailer has also standardized on Oracle Database 11g.
