Moods of Norway Strikes a Pose for International Expansion with Infor

Infor M3 Streamlines Business Processes Across Nordics Fashion Brand
Published 29 May 2014

Oslo – May 29, 2014 – Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that Moods of Norway, a Norwegian headquartered fashion brand, has deployed Infor M3 to drive efficiencies and improve productivity across its international business.  The application will help streamline processes across the finance, manufacturing, supply chain, warehousing and sales functions, and scale to support international growth for the fashion company.

News points

  • As a young business experiencing rapid growth, Moods of Norway required a robust application which would support core processes and integrate with existing systems.  The application had to possess capabilities to support the international fashion company as it grows in size, complexity and geographic reach. 
  • Following a thorough review of three providers, Infor M3 was selected based on its ability to support the entire budgeting-to-order fulfilment process, the fact that it is customised specifically for fashion businesses, and Infor’s local presence via its partner, iStone.  
  • Infor M3 integrates finance, sales, warehousing and logistics processes and supports accounting requirements across different legal entities and countries. 
  • Following a successful implementation, tighter quality control for incoming goods and advanced planning and store replenishment are expected to boost margins, while enhanced stock management such as pick and pack processes at factories, and use of kits (various SKUs in the same box) will boost fulfilment and minimise waste.

“As a small but fast growing company, having tight control and visibility of our business is crucial,” comments Jan Fjellkårstad, Controller, Moods of Norway.  “The needs and nuances of fashion are very different from those of other types of manufacturers, and we needed an ERP system which contained both the functionality to support our specific needs, as well as the scale to help us realise our international growth ambitions.  95% of the functionality we needed was already in Infor M3 for Fashion.”
