Lingerie, sleepwear and sock manufacturer Delta Galil has expanded its international deployment of Infor M3 enterprise resource planning (ERP) software in a six-figure deal.

The move means the Israeli textile and apparel manufacturer and marketer also manages its ERP layout through one site and one database globally.

The multi-site, multi-country and multi-company implementation 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.

"The textile and apparel industry is characterised by a very complex supply chain," says 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."

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.

Fashion industry functionality within Infor M3 includes its flexible style, colour, size and fit matrix and global inventory management features to help improve the management and supply chain of products for a diverse range of leading brands and customers.
