Italian Men's Clothing Design and Manufacturing Company Selects Microsoft Dynamics AX for Its US Operations
February 27 2013
Canali, word-famous Italian men's clothing brand, has
selected Microsoft Dynamics AX
for its US operations. Business in North America must be going quite well, as the company has decided to implement an enterprise resource planning (ERP) software application that would serve the entire region.
All Canali's factories are in Italy (and the fact that it has not moved its manufacturing operations to lower-wage countries is worth some respect). Since Canali does not conduct any manufacturing in the US, the software selection case was limited to coordination of distribution channels and retail and wholesale operations.
The choice of Microsoft software doesn't really surprise me, since Canali is a long-term customer of fashion industry—focused Italian software vendor DataFashion, which is, in turn, a Microsoft Dynamics platform client. Moreover, not long ago, Canali fully
acquired its ERP provider
[link opens PDF]. So it was quite obvious that the software selection would be a competition between different Microsoft Dynamics solutions and, certainly, a matter of picking the right Microsoft partner. And Green Beacon Solutions has become the partner of choice for the project.
These is a good reason to believe that the implementation project will be successful: the client is familiar with the technology and the software, while the implementation partner is recognized for its distribution and supply chain projects. All these factors are solid prerequisites for delivering an ERP on time and within budget.
