Infor, a provider of business applications and built for the cloud, has announced that TAL Apparel Limited, a provider of innovative products and services across various stages of the fashion supply chain, has finished the first phase of migrating its legacy ERP to Infor Cloudsuite Fashion to achieve significant cost reductions and operational efficiencies.

TAL began migrating its ERP system from Infor M3 to Infor Cloudsuite in April 2016. The Infor and TAL team worked together on an approach to migrate all 1,500 users in six countries over to the new system within a three-day downtime window to minimise business disruption. They achieved a 50 per cent reduction in heavy batch jobs, such as MRP and monthly end closing jobs.

After migrating to Infor Cloudsuite Fashion, the TAL ERP system will be upgraded seamlessly by Infor, enjoying the latest features including extensibility, scalability, performance, security, and continuous innovation.

The fashion industry is faced with severe challenges in terms of the pace of product innovation, digital transformation and omni-channel. In an era of big data and cloud computing, the key factor in achieving a successful business is finding ways to leverage innovative industry-specific ERP solutions to meet fast-changing needs and to be more profitable.

Compared with traditional deployments, cloud-based solutions can help reduce one-time hardware and software investment so that enterprises can put more emphasis on business innovation. The flexibility that cloud brings can enable better support for business innovation and customised production.

Dr. Delman Lee, president and CTO for TAL Apparel Limited said, “The Infor team understands our industry very well. The Infor M3 consultants working for us are all very experienced, with many years of M3 and fashion industry experience. All of this has helped us improve system efficiency, greatly enhancing our manufacturing operational capability in the digital era.”

Graham McColough, vice president, managing director, North Asia, Infor said, “Going to cloud has already become a trend for enterprises. The major value that cloud brings is fast and resilient on-line expansion of business as well as improving the cost structure of the enterprise. We are very happy that TAL Apparel is beginning to migrate to Infor Cloudsuite Fashion, and has achieved significant improvements in operational performance, and are willing to support more industry companies in Asia to migrate to cloud.” (GK)
