FOB Direct implements WFX Cloud PLM software

FOB Direct has been in fabric and garment manufacturing in China and other countries for over 25 years. The company supplies to department stores, specialty chain stores, brands and wholesalers with clients across UK, USA, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Managing production of good quality garments and fabrics from China and Asia is the key area that the company wanted to strengthen through implementation of new technology.

FOB Direct used two in-house custom built systems for over a decade. Managing the customization was slow, expensive and running servers for remote access was a financial drain. FOB Direct felt a Cloud-based system was required to successfully coordinate the complex business operations across regions and to save on the IT Infrastructure costs. FOB Direct chose WFX because it did much more than what their present systems did, at half the cost and was also on the cloud.

"For a complete system that saves on having to run servers and at a totally affordable cost on a per user basis WFX ticks all the boxes."

"We chose WFX because it is a complete end-to-end product life-cycle solution with a fully integrated task management by exception. It offers multi-currency costing and a good T&A system. Our staff is able to view the entire production operation and can easily assign tasks to other users.

"Management now has a quick overview of over-due and one-time tasks on their screen. The online training of WFX and support has been excellent and far better than I have seen from other companies and is very user friendly."- says Warren Bird, Owner.
