By implementing Simparel, Mamiye Brothers Inc., a leading manufacturer of children’s and teen apparel, has improved its overall supply chain efficiencies, reduced their central costs, and has been able to tap into new distribution channels with ease.
“We managed to ‘milk’ our original ERP for 15 years, but over that span of time it became no longer a ‘package solution’ but a highly customized solution with many ‘bolt-ons’ that were costly and difficult to manage,” explains David Cropper, CIO of Mamiye Brothers Inc.
Prior to implementing Simparel, Mamiye Brothers was using a legacy ERP solution that they had implemented over 15 years ago. The outdated solution did not provide the functionality today’s fashion and apparel ERP solutions offer out-of-the-box, nor did it support the company’s growth and expansion.
"To accommodate Mamiye’s changing business model, the company resorted to “the bolt-on strategy”, as have most fashion and apparel companies who have not made the change to a more modern, unified ERP solution like Simparel.
Since implementing Simparel’s Unified Global ERP Solution for fashion and apparel manufacturers, Mamiye has been able to accommodate their growth and better manage their overall apparel supply chain.
The advanced technology and unified platform Simparel offers, has allowed Mamiye to ‘tweak’ their business model in order to tap into other distribution channels, which Cropper states would have been difficult in their old environment.
In addition to the achieving the agility to grow and expand their business, Mamiye decided to leverage cloud based computing (SaaS) to reduce their central costs. When evaluating their options, Mamiye decided that Simparel had the best SaaS option, offering the same flexibility, adaptability and functionality of a licensed solution.
"With Simparel, now we have a platform that allows us to move into the future rather than being constrained by the past. Simparel has helped us improve process efficiency and has given us the ability to tweak our business model to tap into other distribution channels that would have been difficult in our old environment," explains Cropper.
Designed specifically for the apparel, footwear, home furnishings and accessories industries, Simparel enables manufacturers to reach their full potential by accelerating performance across the entire company, as well as their global supply chain. The Simparel Unified Global ERP Solution provides global enterprise visibility and collaboration throughout the PLM, Supply Chain Management, Order-to-Cash, EDI, Logistics and Distribution processes.
True end-to-end functionality lets customers focus on products and sales by making business decisions faster and easier, improving product delivery, and facilitating cost and inventory management. This unified model approach has been proven to enable greater agility, flexibility and responsiveness.
