Global fashion retail conglomerate Apparel Group has selected Oracle to help meet its long-term strategic, financial, and operational goals. With a growing portfolio of more than 75 brands, catering for millions of customers in its 1,750 stores, Apparel Group will use Oracle technology to streamline processes across departments, to launch new brands and expand into different geographies.
“Successful retailers need to be able to gain complete visibility across their operations, from merchandising and inventory down to financials,” said Nilesh Ved, Founder, Apparel Group. “Oracle will provide us with a single, global version of the truth and real-time view of inventory and profitability across our vast array of channels and brands. Not only will this enable us to operate smarter, but also elevate the omnichannel experience we are providing our customers.”
