Since its formation in 1978, Kiabi, a ready-to-wear retail group based in France, has experienced strong growth, driven by offering current fashion at low prices. The company sells cost-conscious clothing and accessories for men, women, and children. To date, the Kiabi network has more than 400 sales outlets in France and the French overseas territories, Spain, Italy, Portugal, and Russia.
Kiabi selected Oracle Hyperion software because it integrated seamlessly with the Oracle E-Business Suite solution used by the group for the last 14 years. The solution also provided the necessary tools to help streamline financial management for 400 sales outlets.
“For us, there was no question about deciding to implement Oracle Hyperion because, contrary to its competitors, the modules can be directly integrated into Oracle E-Business Suite, which is the core of our technology platform. The solution guarantees reliability of our financial system and precision to the nearest Euro, which is indispensable in maintaining our growth trend,” said Philippe Pauwels, financial information systems manager, Kiabi.
