Retail Powerhouse Cape Union Mart International Goes to the Cloud to Accelerate Growth
Outdoor and Fashion retailer and manufacturer, Cape Union Mart International Pty Ltd, Inc. has selected Oracle to modernize its retail operations. With the Oracle Retail Cloud, the company plans to fuel growth across all sales channels with better inventory visibility and more sophisticated merchandise assortments that keep shoppers coming back for more.
“This is a complex project, touching virtually every part of our business. The Oracle team has partnered with us from start to finish; building our trust and giving us an insight into what we can expect in the implementation of the transformational project – we look forward to working with them and rebuilding our retail IT landscape into a world class environment, taking Cape Union Mart to the next level,” said Grant De Waal-Dubla, Group IT Executive, Cape Union Mart.
Cape Union Mart strives to deliver what their customers need with the right product in the right store at the right time. Until now, the brand has managed its retail assortments with a talented team and well-defined process in excel spreadsheets. As Cape Union Mart continued to grow, they needed a better way to manage their operations. With Oracle Retail, the brand can fully embrace automated, systemized workflows driven by dashboards and end to end reporting with a common user interface. This will lead to more seamless fulfillment and accurate demand forecasts.
“By choosing Oracle, Cape Union Mart can focus on business objectives and results, not technology. As a cloud provider, we take great pride in building appropriate real-time integration across the Oracle portfolio so our customers can get the information and results they needed quickly – whether that’s moving existing inventory or anticipating next seasons fashion trends and ensuring they are available for customers,” said Mike Webster, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Retail.
