Fireside chat with Frank Waechter and Johan Dillerop

Expert Talk: Puma & Infor

Get on the fast track to environmental, social, and financial sustainability

PUMA is one of the world’s leading sports brands that has established a history of making fast product designs for the fastest athletes on the planet. The company intends to equally be able to react fast to new trends, to be fast innovators, fast in solving problems––and to be the fastest sports brand for its partners and suppliers, so that suppliers benefit instantly from investments and progress made around sustainability and economic, environmental, and social opportunities.

To make this vision a reality, PUMA teamed up with the International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group, to provide financing to PUMA's suppliers in emerging markets in order to offer incentives for improving environmental, health and safety, and social standards. Puma’s aim: to use its position to elevate the social responsibility and sustainability performance of its suppliers. Infor Nexus, a cloud-based business network and platform for global trade and supply chain management run by Infor, supported this goal by enabling participants to manage and leverage data across multiple supply chain functionalities, optimizing the flow of goods, funds and information.

In this live fireside chat, Frank Waechter, Global Director Treasury & Insurance, PUMA SE at Herzogenaurach, Germany, and Johan Dillerop, Strategic Account Manager EMEA, Infor, will share with you the highlights of the project, its business case, and its success:
  • What is Infor Nexus® and how does the technology work?
  • Why is a cloud-based supply chain platform the key to full transparency along the entire process?
  • How have Puma, IFC, and their partners benefited from their collaboration?
