Finest Shoes, an Italian footwear company and owner of the Atlantic Stars brand, has selected Infor M3 Fashion with Infor Accelerator for Fashion. Infor is a leading IT company that builds industry suites in the cloud and efficiently deploys technology that puts the user experience first, leverages data science, and integrates easily into existing systems.

As part of a strategy to expand internationally, the application will be deployed by Infor partner and digital fashion specialist Venistar, and is expected to support strategic decision making, enhance visibility and boost production at the fashion footwear brand.

Following the acquisition of a majority stake in the business by private equity firm Alcedo, Finest Shoes needed to modernise its systems and establish a foundation for future business growth. Specifically it required integrated ERP capabilities which could support the specific requirements of the fashion industry, and could scale as the company pursues expansion into new markets.

Infor M3 Fashion, supported by Venistar, was selected based on its deep industry-specific functionality and ability to scale. Infor Accelerator for Fashion speeds up the implementation process and establishes a clear set of best practice guidelines from the outset, according to Infor.

“Through our deployment of Infor we will be provided with full integration and visibility of everything from finance and administration through to stock management, production and distribution, together with business intelligence to allow us to make more informed decisions about the business. This is invaluable as we pursue our expansion plans and consolidate our brand,” Sonia Lorenzet, chairman, Finest Shoes/Atlantic Stars said.

“For fashion businesses, the question as to whether to modernise systems is not so much as, but when. Clearly those who recognise both the opportunity and the challenges ahead, and establish the right systems to address both, will be in the best position to react to customer demand and deliver new styles which will boost revenue and brand awareness. Our applications have been designed in recognition of the specific complexities inherent in the fashion industry and therefore allows fashion companies to capitalise on growth opportunities to win market share,” Franco Dama, channel sales director, Infor said.
