Italian men's fashion brand Ermenegildo Zegna has gone live with an Oracle Retail system to drive more informed decision making across its global business.
By optimising merchandising, buying and planning capabilities through an integrated Oracle platform, Ermenegildo Zegna says it will help ensure that "daily decisions align with business objectives".
Ermenegildo Zegna Group is using Oracle Retail Merchandise Financial Planning to help enable the integration of its global merchandising and financial planning operations.
The project was managed by a steering committee headed by Ermenegildo Zegna, the chief executive officer of the group, to help ensure the full alignment of the system between the business and IT teams.
With more than 500 stores across over 100 countries, Ermenegildo Zegna Group wanted to integrate merchandising and financial planning to "capitalise on more global opportunities".
Oracle Retail Merchandise Financial Planning promises to provide the capacity for "faster identification of opportunities across market segments to drive more profitable inventory investment decisions", according to the company.
Oracle partner Accenture and Oracle Consulting implemented the global retail solution across branches.
