SAP Apparel and Footwear is an enterprise management system that supports financial processes, order fulfillment, supply chain management and logistics.
The solution will enable Benetton to improve its planning, sourcing, distribution and replenishment processes, according to SAP.
Benetton will install the software system at its production facilities, logistics centres and retail outlets worldwide.
The system will give around 1,500 employees a view of the entire supply chain from the design process to the store shelf, enabling them to monitor business processes efficiently.
Benetton is among about 50 companies, including footwear suppliers Adidas-Salomon and Nike, to have chosen the SAP system.
