Cleo, the worldwide leader in ecosystem integration solutions, has announced that Summit Resource International (SRI), a leading domestic and international private-label apparel manufacturer, has chosen the Cleo Integration Cloud platform to consolidate, integrate, and automate the application and B2B data flows powering its rapidly expanding global business.

Cleo Integration Cloud, Cleo’s flagship offering, is a single, hybrid ecosystem integration platform enabling organisations to connect, transform, integrate, orchestrate, and analyse end-to-end application, B2B, and data integrations for improved visibility across global business ecosystems like SRI’s. The platform empowers technical and business personas to make better decisions, create stronger relationships with trading partners, drive business continuity, and accelerate growth as integration requirements change.

Cleo’s fully managed ecosystem integration solution provides SRI with a cloud-based platform for all its data movement and data transformation needs, a NetSuite ERP application connector for seamless front-end and back-end integration, a Shopify application connector to support the data flows powering its e-commerce business.

In 2018, SRI sought to modernise its systems to better support its growing international business and the company also chose to simultaneously upgrade its EDI processes and scalability. The apparel manufacturer sells into several major retailers, but also does business with numerous outlets that don’t have traditional EDI capabilities and required alternative data integration options. Further, SRI is launching several new lines of business that involve different integration expertise.

“Our previous setup and systems were highly customised and inflexible, and so much of what we were doing required manual intervention,” said John Huyg, vice president of technology at SRI. “So, we decided to modernise to make our business scalable and to focus on streamlining our customer interactions.”

“Cleo Integration Cloud ensures that we can scale our domestic sales, simplify partner onboarding, and execute true EDI functionality to meet our growing international requirements. Migrating to the Cleo platform will provide a highly available and reliable service, and improve our onboarding and visibility functions, which ultimately will enhance SRI’s global partnerships,” added Huyg.

“What sold us on Cleo Integration Cloud was not only the solution’s ability to eliminate manual EDI processing, but also its ability to integrate our new ERP and e-commerce applications, all from one platform. It’s a complete, end-to-end solution that will transform how SRI does business going forward,” said Huyg.

“Technology sprawl was one of the biggest obstacles to achieving our global growth strategy,” said KC Tolliver, CEO of SRI. “But Cleo Integration Cloud will support our expansion requirements and position us for success sooner rather than later. We’re excited by the possibilities that this Cleo partnership presents.”

“SRI’s modernisation aspirations are very progressive but are increasingly becoming the reality in today’s digital business era. In fact, SRI’s goals are indicative of a larger ecosystem-driven trend,” said Cleo CEO Mahesh Rajasekharan. “Most companies have traditionally treated application and B2B transactions as separate, disparate business processes, which creates unintegrated data silos within the organisation.

“SRI, however, is proactively taking the ‘outside-in’ approach – integrating its critical customer and trading partner interactions with internal systems to create truly end-to-end processes that generate added business value. It’s exciting to see, and we’re thrilled that Cleo Integration Cloud is the cornerstone of Summit’s ecosystem integration journey,” added Rajasekharan.

The Bozeman, Montana-based company, SRI, designs, develops, and manufactures apparel for its customers and is the exclusive workwear and lifestyle clothing wholesaler for a major global brand. SRI has been focusing on upgrades to its IT infrastructure amid plans for expanded business growth around the world. (PC)
