Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, today announced Danish-owned fashion manufacturer LTP Group has selected Infor CloudSuite Fashion to be deployed throughout its production facilities in Europe and the Far East. The suite of applications will help drive growth by delivering the benefits of standardization and enable LTP to offer increased customer value by combining the product lifecycle management (PLM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) capabilities within the suite.
LTP Group is a contract garment manufacturer for brands such as Kjus, House of Lola and Peak Performance, as well as furniture manufacture. It has over 1,200 employees throughout seven factories, producing more than three million items a year.
Handling such high production volumes, LTP faces the challenges of continual changes to designs whilst earlier iterations of those designs are in production. In order to accommodate this dynamic environment, LTP sought a solution that could offer full ERP and PLM integration, whilst still delivering standard processes.
Following a thorough review of the market and extensive benchmarking, Infor CloudSuite Fashion was chosen on the basis of its deep, fashion industry-specific functionality and the clear, quick link between the ERP and PLM capabilities. Furthermore, Infor CloudSuite Fashion will also help improve lead-time and warehousing processes throughout the LTP supply chain including the handling of sub-suppliers.
LTP chose to implement via the cloud because it will enable LTP to remain focused on its core business whilst Infor assumes responsibility for the hosting, maintenance and upgrades of the technology. Cloud deployment also offers consistency across the different geographies within the Group and a simple path for future expansion.
“In an industry as competitive and innovative as fashion, the ability to create customer value by integrating product development with the back-end processes can be a real advantage,” said Morten Ostergaard, CEO, LTP Group. “Our investment in Infor technology is first and foremost about ensuring we are positioned for growth, able to respond to customer demands more quickly and with greater agility.”
“Fashion manufacturers continue to look to technology to offer not only the cost savings of standardization, but also the innovative tools of growth,” said Andrew Dalziel, industry and solution strategy director, Infor. “The cloud underpins both of these benefits and will help deliver consistency, standardization and speed to LTP.”
