US-based women's specialty retailer Ann Taylor Inc has selected MSC Technology Ltd's global sourcing solution for its offices in the US, Asia, and Europe.

Ann Taylor will deploy Hong-Kong-based MSC's solution across its global network to support its product development, production management, and quality control departments. 

The application will provide real-time, fully integrated information and analysis capabilities. 

The deployment of MSC will ultimately extend to Ann Taylor's suppliers.
 
According to Jesse Napoli, VP of information services, Ann Taylor was looking for technology to better support the company's sourcing strategy. 

"We set out to achieve a series of goals: facilitate better collaboration, support our growth plan, eliminate redundant effort, and centralise all sourcing data so that we can provide timely business management information."
