Sync becomes PLM choice for SA apparel businesses

Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) is a top level enterprise strategy that is being used by more & more leading retailers & brand manufacturers across the globe as industry pressure increases to produce the right products, at the right place, at the right time.

For the Apparel industry, implementing a PLM system means successful collaboration of the entire business process, providing visibility into the supply chain from conception of a design through to completion of the end product.

An effective PLM strategy encourages different teams & departments to synchronise & communicate, makes crucial information available at the click of a button & integrates design & product development with the rest of the supply chain, making it possible to identify potential delays or problems before they actually become such.

Sync is fast becoming the PLM software system of choice for apparel businesses in South Africa, with over 80 SA Apparel brands, sourcing & manufacturing companies now using Sync system.  Sync’s QA module manages the entire Quality Audit process electronically, drastically reducing the potential for errors or delays that so often occur during the fit, seal & pre-production sampling process. 

This module has been recently added to Sync’s existing portfolio of 15 modules to allow for more detailed information, quicker decision making & early identification of issues.  Visually appealing dashboards are included in the module to give users a comprehensive summarized view of the department, highlighting potential late deliveries & allowing management to make necessary adjustments to shorten lead times & result in timeous delivery of an order.

In addition, the Task module provides end-to-end visibility and makes it easy to manage the various activities performed throughout the process. It enables internal & external users to prioritize their work & prompts them to do certain activities on a daily basis, simplifying & streamlining the process & ensuring on-time delivery.

Many existing retail systems are not all-encompassing & are missing vital elements such as PLM, Task management & Vendor Portals. Sync closes the gap by providing a comprehensive software solution for clothing businesses. It can be used on its own or in conjunction with existing software systems to fill the gap & enable companies to adopt a PLM strategy for more streamlined, effective business processes.
