Filippa K Finds Perfect Fit With Infor

Infor M3 Supports Swedish Fashion Label as It Evolves and Expands

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - October 23, 2014) - Infor, leading provider of business application software serving more than 73,000 customers, today announced that Filippa K, leading Swedish fashion label, has deployed Infor M3 for Fashion to support rapid business growth and a shift in its business model. The application will help Filippa K to boost productivity, drive efficiencies, and support expansion as it opens new stores and launches an international online presence. 

News points

  • As a dynamic fashion company, Filippa K's processes are complex, and following rapid business growth, it had outgrown its previous system.
  • In order to support international growth and move away from a pure wholesale to a wholesale/retail business model, the fashion business required a new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system to act as the backbone of the company. 
  • Having evaluated a number of applications against criteria which included flexibility; scale; functionality; local presence; value for money and total cost of ownership (TCO), Infor M3 for Fashion was selected. Key to the selection was Infor M3's ability to support the process granularity and nuances of the fashion industry. 
  • Infor M3 will act as the backbone of the company, integrating fully with Filippa K's Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), third party logistics (TPL), point of sale (POS), e-commerce, Business Intelligence (BI), HR & Payroll systems.
  • The efficiencies delivered by Infor M3 for Fashion will free up staff resources to focus on identifying market opportunities and growing the business.
