Mike Jeffries led apparel retailer Abercrombie & Fitch, has selected Demandware Inc., an industry-leading provider of enterprise cloud commerce solutions, to expand its digital retail operations across Asia.

The retailer has launched ten new ecommerce sites for its Abercrombie & Fitch and Hollister brands with Demandware platform, serving China, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, and Taiwan. All the sites are mobile-optimized through responsive web design.

Demandware provides a central platform for managing multiple sites, enabling the Abercrombie & Fitch corporate ecommerce team to maintain control over the brand experience, while working with regional resources to adapt the sites to the unique requirements of each geographical condition, according to reports.

With the Demandware platform, the retailer has established a localized digital presence quickly and cost-effectively.”
