Dassault ENOVIA V6 to improve Trent productivity
Apr '09
Dassault Systemes (DS), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, announced that Trent Ltd, a Tata Group company and operator of Trent Westside, one of India's largest and fastest growing retailers, will deploy the ENOVIA Apparel Accelerator for Design & Development.

“As a market leader, it is imperative that we are able to stay ahead of the latest consumer trends. Our ability to understand what's happening at the point of sale and then effectively work with our suppliers and partners to translate this into new designs for subsequent seasons is crucial to our long term success,” said Gaurav Mahajan, Head of Buying at Trent Ltd.

“Based on our initial experience with ENOVIA V6 we have been impressed by Dassault Systemes ability to quickly deploy a PLM solution that provides us with greater visibility into the supply chain and an ability to track and manage costs and changes as necessary.”

With 38 Westside stores in India and plans to expand rapidly in 2010, Trent Ltd. has to ensure that it can manage its margin and profitability by rapidly responding to changing market conditions and consumer trends. A key element of its long term success will be based on how effectively the company is able to work with the core elements in their ecosystem including internal resources, partners, buyers, sourcing offices and suppliers.

The ENOVIA Accelerator, which will take just nine weeks to implement, will integrate with their existing ERP systems to provide Trent Ltd. with greater visibility into the new product development process. This approach will enable the company to reduce sample development time and increase seasonal options by leveraging the market knowledge and design capabilities of key suppliers while also tracking commodity prices to negotiate better costs with them.

“In order to seize new opportunities and stay ahead of competition, retailers and apparel companies are starting to address the need for a more comprehensive approach to working collaboratively with their key suppliers. There's no doubt that the Indian RFA industry is extremely ambitious and companies are looking for the opportunity to expand into new markets.
