INDUSTRY : Retail – Footwear
Milano Impex Pvt. Ltd owns two brands EGLE & LOUIS ALBERTI and has been successfully selling them in the Indian market. Post carving a niche in European market, Milano Impex Pvt Ltd introduced brand EGLE in India in 2003 followed by introduction of LOUIS ALBERTI.
Milano Impex initially followed the dealer & distributor business model which contributed to a major chunk of their revenue. Company had presence in the domestic market with the help of their dealers. Hence to set its footprints in the Arena of high street retail, company ventured to set up their first Retail outlet at Chandigarh, India.
Milano Impex Pvt. Ltd., a fast-growing brand name in high-end casual and formal footwear, appointed Merino, a CitiXsys partner to implement iVend Retail Management Suite with SAP Business One.
Milano began implementing at stores that gave the company limited visibility and reporting of in-store stock and warehouse. With ambitious plans to grow the business, Milano chose iVend Retail Management Suite to manage their Retail operations with SAP Business One as backend ERP. The need was to have a system that could manage a fast growing business and be easy to use & maintain with limited IT resources.
