Infor, a leader in business cloud software specialised by industry, has announced that APP has selected Infor Retail CloudSuite to support their exponential growth and global expansion. APP manages two leading brands, Mackage and SOIA & KYO, and is dedicated to the design, production, and wholesale commercialisation of luxury outerwear and accessories.

APP will implement a suite of solutions including Infor CloudSuite Fashion, Infor Demand Planner, Infor Nexus, and Birst analytics to accelerate its direct-to-consumer expansion. Infor’s platform is expected to enable APP to standardise processes across the enterprise while maximising the availability of inventory across all fulfilment channels. APP will modernise and consolidate their multiple ERPs with CloudSuite Fashion and leverage the modern, connected platform via Infor Nexus to support growth across their various direct to consumer channels, wholesale, store growth and ecommerce, according to Infor.

“As our business rapidly expands, APP needs to have a modernised IT foundation to grow and scale effectively. Our investment in Infor’s ERP and supply chain solutions will help provide the transformation our organisation needs to drive agility, improve our time to market for new products and expand globally,” Donna Lisk, chief financial officer, APP said.

Given the seasonal nature of the outerwear business and the unpredictability from weather, managing inventory availability with seasonal demand and coordinating products across a global supply chain is a key challenge that the company will be able to better manage. Infor Nexus offers APP supply chain visibility and collaboration from the factory floor to the store, providing APP with the ability to best manage product complexity and the agility to respond to changing demand. Finally, APP will leverage Infor’s deep fashion industry functionality to standardise on best practices and growth of their global wholesale and omni-channel retail businesses.

“Infor’s Retail solutions help organisations better manage inventory on the world’s largest commerce network. We are excited to partner with APP to help the organisation through its transformation of their digital supply chain. Infor’s retail-specific solutions will provide APP with the agility and best practice capabilities needed to thrive in a competitive luxury fashion industry. With Infor, APP has the tools to streamline day-to-day business, and our innovative tools provide them with the visibility and capability to manage their supply chain globally,” Corey Tollefson, senior vice president and general manager, Infor Retail said.
