TXT e-solutions, a leading provider of integrated and collaborative planning solutions announces that Marc Cain is live with TXT’s Supplier Relationship Management and Supply Chain Planning & Execution solutions.

Seamlessly integrated, the two solutions allow Marc Cain and their suppliers to act as a single enterprise benefiting from visibility, coordinated production and supply schedules, better use of resources and slashed lead times.

Marc Cain, a world-renowned premium brand in the womenswear sector, produces high quality and fashionable casual wear in Bodelshausen and distributes globally. With over 800 employees and sales volumes of 210 Million Euros in 2011, Marc Cain features a vertically integrated business model, from the design and production processes, to the management of a selective distribution network characterized by 146 Marc Cain stores, 258 shop-in-stores in 59 countries and more than 1,470 specialized shops worldwide.

Matthias Behr, Managing Director Purchase & Production at Marc Cain, commented “We approached TXT with the objective to establish a more effective production planning system and further increase transparency over operations; We soon decided to extend the project to the whole Supply Chain by integrating into one system and one process not only our own factory but our suppliers and service providers operations, as well as the management of raw materials and inventories.

“In particular, material management is fully supported: the purchasing process, goods receipt and quality control, as well as the supply of materials to subcontractors including the management of missing materials. With TXT we have established a single corporate platform for in-house production, external CMT (Cutting Making Trimming), trade goods and purchasing”.

TXT’s solutions provide Marc Cain with one system and one planning environment for internal and external production planning and control, purchase and production order creation, advanced supplier relationship management including timelines, order confirmation and progress management through KPIs.

Furthermore, the solution supports fast innovation with the effective management of special orders resulting from the design process - including prototype and test orders.

“In a highly dynamic sector such as Fashion – continues Mr. Behr – the ability to integrate the end to end process from design to production to supply and establish a common frame for communication across our partner ecosystem is absolutely key. With TXT we now integrate over 150 internal users and 80 global suppliers; the whole process is streamlined”.

Holger Klappstein, Sales Director SRM at TXT e-solutions, added “We are excited by this successful go-live at Marc Cain and we congratulate their team; synergies among our groups were strong and global implementation was seamless. Marc Cain is a best in class example of business integration across the extended supply chain and the sensitive results this can bring”.
