PTC FlexPLM to improve operational efficiency of agron
May '08
PTC announced that agron inc, the accessory licensee for adidas America, is using PTC's Retail, Footwear and Apparel PLM solution to manage its accessory product lines from design concept through product development and catalog creation.

Using PTC's FlexPLM, agron is able to improve access to product information across its multiple business groups in order to increase information reuse and improve operational efficiency.

Agron's legacy system had multiple distributed databases that resulted in data inconsistencies and inefficiencies. To improve overall accuracy and product development efficiencies, agron opted for a consolidation strategy that would control and manage all the information used by its product teams, catalog creation teams and ERP system in a single system to drive improved product development and marketing activities.

Additionally, the desired solution would be rich with out-of-the-box capabilities and not require extensive configuration to achieve the desired results.

Within 16 weeks of the purchase of the PTC software, agron began using FlexPLM as its scalable, web-based PLM platform that was accessible by various departments and business groups to manage agron's entire accessory product development process, beginning with line planning and ending with providing product data and imagery for its product catalogs.

In addition to using FlexPLM to manage the graphics placed in its catalogs, agron is also taking advantage of FlexPLM's line planning capability to support line plan viewing and to be the gathering place for all its contributors in a line development effort.
