California-based casual lifestyle apparel company Michael Gerald has implemented Visionet Systems’ HauteLogic solution. The supply chain management suite, which is built on the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations ERP platform and powered by Microsoft Azure Cloud, will help streamline operations for the retailer.
Visionet’s HauteLogic will also enable Michael Gerald to standardise and digitise its apparel wholesale processes, including product management, centralised inventory management, electronic data interchange (EDI) and sourcing collaboration. It will achieve this by delivering fully integrated order to cash, procure to pay, advanced warehouse management, and finance on a single, unified platform.
“Our objective was to embrace digital transformation in all of our processes,” said Dave McCullagh, chief finance officer at Michael Gerald. “Visionet was carefully chosen as our partner based on fashion and apparel industry expertise, to provide a comprehensive solution for us to manage every aspect of our business including planning, design, production, and distribution processes.
