JD Sports Group-owned Iberian Sport Retail Group (ISRG) has joined the Nexus Supply Chain Network of Infor, which provides business cloud software.
As part of the Infor Nexus, ISRG will be able to manage the flow of goods across the global supply chain and collaborate with a community of buyers, suppliers, and logistics providers in real time.
Expected benefits of the software include enhanced product availability, which will reduce lead times and help increase sales. ISRG will also help improve supplier compliance and accountability by increasing automation throughout supply chain processes.
The newly formed ISRG, which is the combined group of Sprinter, Sportzone and JD Sports, selected the Infor Nexus Commerce Network after its successful implementation within Sportzone.
Sportzone supply chain head Miguel Teles said: “Managing the global supply chain on Infor Nexus has been a key success factor for Sportzone like other brand partners such as Nike, Adidas, Puma, Helly Hansen and many others that are currently using GT Nexus platform.
“The supply chain visibility and collaboration capabilities provided by Infor Nexus will allow us to accelerate the flow of goods and improve the agility to fulfil the expectations of our demanding customers.
“Infor Nexus will also help ISRG achieve its corporate goals on sustainability enabling supply chain transparency and collaborative relationships with supply chain partners inspiring change within the industry.”
Infor Retail senior vice president and general manager Corey Tollefson said that the Infor Nexus supply chain platform is key to the company’s strategy of digitising the end to end supply chain.
