OFFICE puts best foot forward with Infor

Infor has announced that OFFICE, a leading fashion footwear specialist and part of Truworths International, has chosen Infor CloudSuite Fashion to align multiple business processes within a unified ERP system.

Delivered via multi-tenant cloud on Amazon Web Services (AWS), the solution will be deployed by Infor partner Fortude, and will help OFFICE simplify complex processes across merchandising, warehousing, allocations, planning and inventory management for greater business efficiency.

As part of its wider digital transformation strategy, OFFICE recognised the need to future-proof its merchandise management system and was looking for a solution that would simplify its complex business processes. Its omnichannel model was placing considerable strain on existing IT resources and the business wanted to eradicate inefficiencies while securing real-time business insight to boost decision-making capabilities.

Jon Richens, managing director of OFFICE, said: “Our IT infrastructure wasn’t keeping pace with the business’ rate of growth. Infor CloudSuite Fashion will provide the streamlined functionality that the business needs, resulting in real efficiency savings across the organisation. We will be able to deliver timely, accurate and insightful business information to the right people, at the right time, enabling faster, more pro-active decision-making.

“The level of commitment from both the Infor and Fortude teams has been second-to-none, and we’ve established a truly collaborative working partnership, which I’m confident will stand us in good stead once we start implementation in 2022.”

Anwen Robinson, Infor GM and SVP for UK & Ireland, added: “Infor CloudSuite Fashion offers industry-specific functionality to enable brands to respond quickly and effectively to shifting consumer demands. As OFFICE has recognised, it’s the ideal solution for fashion businesses that are keen to refine and streamline their key business processes.”
