Apparel and footwear retailer Cole Haan is implementing business solutions supplier Jesta IS' Vision Merchandising Solution at its 40 plus stores over the next few months.

The application will allow Cole Haan Japan to implement North American business practices, and streamline the data flow between North American operations.

Cole Haan Japan will now be able to automate its business processes through integration of its core systems including financials and warehouse management.

John Barron, Cole Haan chief financial officer, said: "With strategic retail expansion, we recognized the need to partner with a company who could provide us with the right inventory management system to help us grow successfully while keeping the right products in front of our customers."
