Progress has announced that Alphabroder, a leading supplier of imprintable apparel, is leveraging its FDM4 ERP system, based on the Progress OpenEdge application development platform, to keep pace with the time sensitive needs and high demands of its customers. Alphabroder optimised its business to process more than 40,000 orders daily with the new platform.

"The reliability and agility of the OpenEdge platform has enabled us to keep pace with changing technologies and the changing needs of our customers through the years. With the latest performance enhancements and data management capabilities of the OpenEdge platform and the continuous innovations from FDM4, we are in an excellent position to maintain and grow our leadership position in the apparel industry," said Dmitri Levin, Alphabroder database administrator.

In a market focused on younger audiences that are technology savvy and expect a seamless user experience, it is vital to move with speed, agility and accuracy. To stay competitive, Alphabroder extended its 18-year relationship with Progress and FDM4 by upgrading its ERP system with the latest features available, including table partitioning and data connectivity. This includes maintaining a 1.3kb database, serving more than 100,000 customers, worldwide.

As part of its latest expansion, Alphabroder also implemented data management and performance improvements including table partitioning and simplified access to SQL and Oracle data warehouses. These upgrades are critical for proper reporting and analysis and the company can now process thousands of last-minute daily orders through its supply chain with speed and precision.

"The imprintable apparel industry is small and extremely competitive. If you cannot deliver a time sensitive order, there are others that will. We pride ourselves on offering our customers the mission-critical technology necessary to stay competitive. We are a long-standing Progress partner and the OpenEdge platform has always outperformed any other vendor. Moreover, Progress continues to drive innovation, not only within the OpenEdge platform, but in ensuring we’re serving the evolving needs of our customers consistently," said Mike Cutsey, president, FDM4.

"For more than 18 years, the FDM4 ERP solution, based on the Progress OpenEdge platform, has served Alphabroder in their business growth, making sure they have the latest technology to run their operations and deliver excellent customer service," said Colleen Smith, vice president and general manager for Progress OpenEdge, Progress. "Their upgrade to Progress OpenEdge 11.6 opened doors to new opportunities for the company, boosting the efficiency of their processes and helping keep the company highly competitive in their market."

The FDM4 ERP solution, based on the Progress OpenEdge platform, integrates many functions within client organisations, including a robust RF Warehouse Management Solution, B2B E-commerce forecasting and procurement, inventory, order processing, allocations, freight calculations and accounting. The OpenEdge platform delivers faster response and better ROI, while preserving integrity, integration and governance. (KD)
