Shirt retailer TM Lewin is investing GBP1.68m (US$3.38m) in Prologic's CIMS enterprise software to assist in expansion plans and projects.

TM Lewin, currently operating over 50 stores throughout the UK, plans to open a significant number of new stores over the next three years and expand overseas, it said.

The implementation project will take place over three phases in the next 18 months, according to the company.

TM Lewin also wants to expand its online sales and use diverse channels to reach the market through wholesaling and franchising.

Mike Trotman, finance director of TM Lewin, said: "We are confident that this integrated system will give us complete control of our business and will support our dynamic growth in the future".
