Banana Republics new merchandising platform goes live
Thursday May 2 2019
The Gap-owned fashion retailer Banana Republic has gone live with a new merchandising cloud platform
It has partnered with Oracle to deploy Oracle Retail Merchandising Cloud Service and Oracle Retail Integration Cloud Service, powered by Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, to drive operational agility and furnish the Banana Republic business teams with better intelligence.
“To meet the evolving needs of our global customers and how they want to shop, we need to simplify and scale operations. By adopting the Oracle Retail Cloud Service, we can maintain a consistent and modern merchandising platform that drives greater productivity through automated best practices,” said Gap CIO Sally Gilligan.
The combined solutions allow Banana Republic to synchronise merchandising operations from buying to inventory valuation.
Moreover, daily tasks such as managing purchase orders and sales auditing are made more efficient and effective with a modern user interface that delivers exceptions and alerts to show buyers a path to resolution or items that require attention.
With a single view of inventory, product data and transaction details, Banana Republic users have the data needed to do their jobs more effectively and easily.
