Redwood Shores, CA – October 6, 2008

News Facts

Fujian Septwolves, one of China’s leading apparel companies with more than 2,000 stores, has selected Oracle® Retail merchandising and planning applications to help drive expansion plans for its retail business and brands across China and internationally.
Rapid and consistent year-on-year growth at Fujian Septwolves has produced a requirement for a strong IT backbone built on Oracle Retail applications and supported by the Oracle E-Business Suite for financial management and human resources.
Oracle Retail merchandising, planning and optimization applications are expected to help Fujian Septwolves more accurately plan assortments; perform the execution of day-to-day merchandising, pricing and logistical supply chain transactions; provide a consistent set of data to drive more profitable business decisions; and introduce best practice for retail processes while continuing to support its extensive wholesale business.
Oracle is working closely with Fujian Septwolves on the first stage of the deployment involving Oracle Retail Warehouse Management System, Oracle Retail Assortment Planning and Oracle Retail Item Planning, and is focused on delivering a rapid speed to value in line with the organisation’s growth objectives.
Fujian Septwolves chose Oracle Retail applications over competing products based largely on the deep retail functionality of the solutions, combined with its wholesale capabilities, and its extensive experience with global retailers.
