4SIGHT Supply Chain Group, a leading supply chain engineering, consulting, and software/technology implementation firm, announced that it has successfully implemented a series of distribution operations improvement and engineering services for Joie, a Los Angeles, CA - based apparel company offering contemporary women's fashion lines. 4SIGHT provided engineering and fulfillment operations expertise to help Joie maximize space utilization within its new facility and prepare for future growth.

In August 2011, faced with increasing customer demand and challenged by insufficient distribution space and infrastructure, Joie asked 4SIGHT to analyze its current distribution operations and provide recommendations for utilizing Joie's newly obtained warehouse space and implementing changes to ensure the company could accommodate forecasted growth.

4SIGHT engineered the optimal layout for the new DC, provided guidance for transitioning to the new facility, and recommended improvements to material handling equipment and systems to support Joie's anticipated changes in order volume.

“The 4SIGHT team listened to our concerns and then went to work analyzing our operations, creating solutions and giving us a clear roadmap for what to do next. They possessed the operations and engineering expertise we needed to drive the requirements and solutions,” says Sally Bao, Joie Vice-President of Operations.

“The work we've completed with Joie required a true blend of our practice areas and expertise,” says Frank Camean, President and CEO of 4SIGHT. “We combined a strategic understanding of their changing demand with the practical realities of order fulfillment to provide both immediate improvements and longer-term recommendations,” says Camean.

Since its inception in 2001, JOIE has successfully filled a void in the contemporary women's apparel market. JOIE provides the modern, fashion-savvy customer with a global wardrobe. The JOIE concept has always been “Casual, Comfortable and Luxurious.” Therefore, each piece that is designed encompasses a balance of these three key elements... one cannot exist without the other. Headquartered in a loft in downtown Los Angeles, Serge Azria's goal is to continue in JOIE's success while progressively evolving the brand.

4SIGHT specializes in supply chain consulting, software/technology implementation and engineering. Our seasoned professionals average more than 18 years of experience helping manufacturers, distributors and retailers solve their supply chain challenges.
