TXT Retail launches AgileFit to speed up retail projects

TXT Retail, one of the leading providers of integrated and collaborative end-to-end planning, PLM, and supply chain collaboration solutions for the luxury, fashion and consumer sectors, has launched TXT AgileFit, a new deployment approach that helps in improving the speed and quality of project implementations.

The TXT AgileFit solution provides a disciplined approach to implementation; a template based starting point, and a full set of documentation to ensure an efficient and successful project with an exact fit for each and every customer.

Reference documentation and supporting tools include solution design and application guides, pre-configured formulas, interface specifications and performance tests—all based on industry best practices.

The TXT AgileFit approach is inspired by the Agile Software Development concepts, a set of incremental software development methods for early delivery.

Based on tested processes and practices, the AgileFit deployment methodology also brings other benefits in terms of quality of the solution design, reduction in project efforts and man-days, mitigation of the inherent project risks in execution.

Simone Pozzi, managing director at TXT Retail, said “With TXT AgileFit, retailers slash the time to achieve benefits. The solutions become rapidly operational, which is extremely important in the dynamic retail sector, where calendars are tight.”

“Companies can then evolve the software based on everyday requirements, such as automating specific tasks, or adding a particular formula. These specific needs, raised after the system is in use, prove extremely valuable given that they come from “real-life” scenarios, as opposed to trying to visualize and configure every detail upfront and long before the roll-out,” Simone added.

Simone said, “Usual challenges over the design and delivery of projects include collecting requirements from key resources that typically have availability constraints, as well as the time normally required for generating the supporting data and for configuration. TXT AgileFit addresses these challenges: reference documentation expedites analysis work; initial data specifications are available before a project starts; and less configuration means more time for testing, training, and change management which are key elements to a project success.”

TXT Retail, part of TXT e-solutions, the company is listed on the Italian Stock Exchange (TXT.MI), counts on more than 300 employees and serves more than 300 Fashion, Retail and Luxury customers worldwide. (GK)
