Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, today announced that the Fashion Division of Samsung C&T America, Inc. (SCTA), located in New York's Garment District, has selected Infor Fashion and Infor Factory Track to help streamline operations across its three departments of apparel, footwear and accessories. Infor Fashion is comprised of a purpose-built, industry-specific suite of solutions designed to address the distinct challenges brand owners, distributors, manufacturers, and retailers face. Infor Fashion's comprehensive capabilities include product design and development, sourcing, demand management, supply chain planning, production management, inventory management, and support for multichannel distribution.
"Our business continues to expand and grow, and we needed a technology partner and industry-specific solution that is powerful enough to manage our U.S. and U.K. operations today, while being nimble enough to adopt to what we will need in the future," said Eung Beom Lee, Director, SCTA. "Infor Fashion was the right fit for a global company like SCTA because not only does the team truly understand our industry and our company-specific goals, but the underlining technology is exactly what we need to support multi-site locations more efficiently as we evolve."
SCTA has also decided to implement Infor Factory Track, a solution that provides end-to-end warehouse automation, along with warehouse mobility, traceability, and tools for tracking labor and time. Using Factory Track, SCTA is able to help streamline production and improve inventory operations as well as increase visibility and insight to understand true costs, improve cycle times, and respond to customer expectations for on-time delivery. In addition, Infor SupplyWEB, a web-enabled Supply Chain Management (SCM) solution, will help SCTA reduce supply chain and inventory costs while increasing operational efficiency and transparency across the organization.
"The fashion industry, while glamourous, is not always easy. It's highly competitive, with global supply chain challenges presenting themselves at each turn. It is more important than ever to have industry-specific IT solutions with the flexibility to meet fluctuating consumer demand, in order to stay profitable and reduce time to market," said Stephan Scholl, president, Infor. "Infor's fashion and retail solutions designed specifically for the ever-changing demands of the fashion industry, so organizations can move as quickly as the market does."
