Software provider Infor has unveiled Infor CloudSuite Fashion, aimed at offering fashion customers “mission critical” applications in the cloud environment.

The new package offers a full PLM solution, covering sourcing, manufacturing, customer order management, supply chain and finance, building on Infor’s existing applications available on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Infor, which will use a subscription-based delivery model, said using cloud-based applications could help “significantly lower” capital investment in IT, as well as allowing users to quickly share data.

“The fashion industry is one that needs to adapt quickly to fluctuations in pricing, consumer demand and regulations – and this could be different in every region in which an organisation operates,” said Bob McKee, industry strategy director, fashion, at Infor.

“Infor CloudSuite Fashion is a strategic asset to organisations operating in this industry because it delivers tools to better connect across different departments and locations, and helps to achieve business goals with a lower total cost of ownership.”
