Founded in 1983 and headquartered in Sparks, MD, FILA North America manufactures and distributes iconic athletic and leisure footwear, apparel, and accessories that fit men, women, and children. The name FILA and the company's legacy of excellence, performance, and sophistication were originally born in northern Italy in 1911 and has since transformed into a global sportswear brand. FILA became known for its bold innovations in fashion, catering to athletes and more casual consumers worldwide.
The company has experienced success in reaching a new generation of customers, through innovative collaborations and retail partnerships with Barneys New York, Urban Outfitters, and Foot Locker. In order to keep pace with the growth of the business, the company needed a modern system to replace its legacy on-premise apparel and fashion systems based on AS/400. The company selected Microsoft Dynamics 365 for its cost-effective cloud ERP platform, combined with Sunrise’s apparel and footwear implementation experience.
Today, the company is live on Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations, as well as other Microsoft cloud technology. With Microsoft Dynamics 365, FILA has streamlined and updated its business processes, gained greater visibility into operations, and is better positioned to expand distribution channels, better serving its customers and retail partners.
