Chausport Reorganizes its Information System around Infor CloudSuite Fashion

Sporting Goods Retailer, part of the JD Sport PLC group, opts for Infor CloudSuite Fashion (M3) to Manage within a Single, Centralised Solution, its Information System.

Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, today announced that Chausport, supported by HereWeGo Consulting, has chosen Infor CloudSuite Fashion (based on Infor M3). After a tender procedure that brought together several solution providers, the Infor solution was chosen for its ability to integrate all the functions of the distributor’s information system: from purchases to inventory management and logistics to the management of its stores’ supplies. The solution will also cover the delivery of products bought by the customers through Ecommerce.

Dominique Dambre, Project Sponsor at Chausport, said: “We aim to move from being a multi-channel player to an omni-channel distributor, which requires us to opt for a single management platform with a centralized database. Among the solutions we evaluated, Infor was able to demonstrate to us that the Infor CloudSuite Fashion solution is able to cover all the essential functions from back and front office, and to integrate them while taking into account of our specialities.”

In addition, the project included an initial demand: to be able to rely both on a vendor and an integrator, and the quality of the Helant team – an Infor partner in France –  convinced Chausport that this combination will accompany the project each step of the way and develop value around the predefined features and services.

Dambre continued: “We were also convinced by the design of Infor CloudSuite Fashion’s user interface, which was critical for the adhesion to the project for our users, especially for the CRM part which had to cover all our sales channels.”

It should also be noted that the chosen software package had to offer open APIs in order to be able to exchange with other third-party systems, as well as the possibility of exporting and importing data from desktop tools.

A first phase of deployment is planned for mid-2018, to cover the purchase, warehouse, supply and back office processes.
