Lane Crawford moves to cloud platform
Luxury retailer Lane Crawford has chosen Orange Business Services to provide a cloud-based platform to extend, secure and manage its IT resources in China and Hong Kong.
This will enable the department store to offer customers “a more connected retail experience”, the companies said in a statement.
Lane Crawford says it chose the Orange Business Services’ cloud platform for its connectivity, flexibility and security, as well a compatability with other business applications.
“Our previous infrastructure did not provide adequate flexibility for scalability or business growth,” says Lane Crawford IT infrastructure senior manager Raymond Liu. “This platform gives us cost-efficient performance, enhanced security and protection, and support for online transaction applications. This is a critical step forward in our digital transformation.”
Founded in 1850, Hong Kong-based Lane Crawford offers the largest designer portfolio in Greater China. With the launch of its digital flagship in 2011, Lane Crawford became the first omni-channel fashion retailer in Greater China.
Based in France, Orange Business Services is a telco that also develops IT applications.
