Tommy Hilfiger Corporation has chosen IBM, eOneGroup and Linux for its new e-business infrastructure as the company works to expand its presence among U.S. specialty retailers, and its worldwide manufacturing facilities.
Tommy Hilfiger selected technologies from IBM to create:
- A new B2B portal that allows retailers and salesforce to view basic available inventory in real-time, and place, track and ship orders;
- A business-to-plant website that links production facilities around the world, which is expected to speed design-to-product time and significantly decrease costs; and
- A virtual employee store that allows, for the first time, Tommy Hilfiger personnel to shop online around the clock.
"We identified an increasing demand for our products among mid-market specialty retailers, and IBM and eOneGroup delivered the technologies and expertise we needed to reach this growing market segment," said Brent Findon, vice president of system development at Tommy Hilfiger.
