Infor, provider of business application software serving more than 73,000 customers, has announced that Delta Galil, the Israeli textile and apparel manufacturer and marketer, expanded its international deployment of Infor M3 and now manages its enterprise resource planning (ERP) layout through one site and one database globally.
M3 was implemented at Delta by Infor local partner Intentia Israel, specialists in international ERP projects at Israeli and non-Israeli companies, with a unique implementation methodology, offered by its subsidiary Intentia Advanced Solutions.
The successful multi-site, multi-country and multi-company implementation at Delta was based on its strong fit with the dynamics of Delta Galil's business and the deep fashion industry functionality within Infor M3. In particular the flexible style, colour, size and fit matrix and global inventory management features will help Delta Galil improve the management and supply chain of products for a diverse range of leading brands and customers.
M3 is expected to support more than 1,000 users across the globe and will assist in consolidated logistics and financial activities throughout the company's manufacturing, marketing and retail operations.
Delta Galil employs more than 9,000 people throughout its manufacturing centres in Israel, Egypt, the Far East and Eastern Europe. In addition, Delta Galil has marketing operations in Israel, London, New York and Germany and 150 retail stores throughout Israel.
"The textile and apparel industry is characterised by a very complex supply chain," said Avi Avital, VP, Information Systems Manager, Delta Galil. "Success depends upon using systems that are broad and flexible and are very specific to the industry. Our implementation of M3 is a direct continuation of our specialisation strategy that is designed to support Delta Galil by embedding best practices in every area of business. M3 has proven itself to be the best fit."
"The capabilities of the IT group within Delta Galil, combined with the rapid implementation methodology from Intentia, have helped deliver this project on time and on budget," said Uzi Yaari, CEO of Intentia Advanced Solutions. "We look forward to continuing our involvement and support for Delta Galil and its use of Infor M3."
"Delta is a prime example of the success that comes from collaborating across a supply chain instead of trying to control it," said Bob McKee, fashion industry director, Infor. "M3 is built around enabling fast, easy connection between people and the technology within companies. This enables quicker, better decisions, a far more agile response to changing market conditions and a keener competitive advantage."
