Global retail conglomerate unifies brands and channels

By Dan Berthiaume - 08/13/2019
Apparel Group streamlines back- and front-end processes across more than 75 brands.

Based in the United Arab Emirates, Apparel Group operates global retail brands including Aldo, Nine West, Aeropostale, and Tim Hortons in countries across four continents. Channels include more than 1,750 brick-and-mortar stores as well as digital commerce.

Seeking to streamline processes across departments, launch new brands and expand into different geographies, Apparel Group has decided to roll out Oracle technology across its enterprise. The company will deploy solutions including the Oracle Retail Merchandising Operations Management suite, integrated with Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud and Oracle ERP Cloud.

Additionally, the Apparel Group has rolled out Oracle Retail Xstore Point-of-Service and Oracle Retail Store Inventory Management in over 700 stores under banners including Charles & Keith, Aldo, Ardene, Garage, Rituals, HEMA, and Dollar Plus. The company will continue implementing Oracle Retail store solutions in the next couple of months.

“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.”

Other retailers have also recently been rolling out Oracle Retail ERP solutions to obtain deeper levels of supply chain insight. Department store retailer Bealls Inc. is obtaining new levels of inventory transparency with cloud-based Oracle Retail technology such as Oracle Retail Merchandise Operations, Oracle Retail Home, and Oracle Retail Insights Cloud Service.

In addition, off-price retailer Stein Mart has gained a holistic view of its inventory and a more streamlined approach to merchandise planning by implementing the Oracle Cloud enterprise platform.
