The Chilean-based company runs a complex supply chain that must allow for evolving product design and more than 100 worldwide suppliers who sell the Maui and Sons, Rip Curl and Volcom brands in Chile and Rip Curl and Volcom in Peru. With 30 per cent of operations in wholesale and small stores across these regions, the company required detailed plans to deliver the right apparel assortment to each area, including over 10,000 combinations of sizes and colours per season, according to a press release by Maui and Sons.
When executives at the brand’s regional arm, Maui and Sons Chile, ran into obstacles scaling operations in Latin America, they rethought their technology approach. After a competitive assessment, they chose to modernise their approach with Oracle Retail. Oracle Database and Middleware solutions support this new retail foundation.
Maui and Sons Chile completed this strategic business initiative and implemented Oracle Retail in 11 months by partnering with Oracle and Oracle Partner Network (OPN) Gold Level member Logic Information Systems. Logic leveraged local retail expertise, cloud capabilities, and the power of the Oracle Retail Reference Library to outline processes and enable choices for Maui and Sons to deploy quickly and effectively.
“We have been successfully in business for nearly 40 years, but we knew it was time to invest in technology that could take us to the next level. Today, we have effectively documented, automated and organised our processes – removing a lot of the limitations to growing and scaling both our product lines and business throughout regions,” said Felipe Guerrero, chief information officer, Maui and Sons Chile. “With Oracle, we have empowered our people to continue to make a difference and accelerate customer value by placing innovation at their fingertips.”
“Using Oracle, Maui and Sons Chile can gain deep insights into its merchandising, allowing the company to serve its mission of selling high valued brands for young lifestyle consumers more effectively across channels, including in-store and online. We can also better connect suppliers, inventory, and stores to ensure a streamlined operation while delivering stellar service to customers,” said Javier Swinburn, chief project officer, Maui and Sons Chile.
“Today, retail is compressed by several factors—the massive scale of transactions, the narrow windows to fulfill orders, and the complexity of choice and format,” said Mike Webster, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Retail. “By transforming its operations, Maui and Sons Chile gained operational agility that allows them to respond fast in one of the most sophisticated retail markets in Latin America.” (PC)
