Lawson Software announced that TAL Group, a leading garment manufacturer based in Hong Kong, has gone live on the latest version of the Lawson enterprise software system for the fashion industry. In addition, TAL is now using Lawson Smart Office to help improve productivity across its global operations.

Headquartered in Hong Kong, TAL is the world leader in the production of innovative clothes that combine style, comfort and functionality. It specializes in the manufacturing of quality men's and women's garments for the world's leading brands such as Liz Claiborne, Brooks Brothers, JCPenney, LL Bean, Giordano, Banana Republic, Uniqlo, and Polo Ralph Lauren. Currently, the company produces one out of six men's dress shirts imported into the United States.

The company launched a system upgrade of Lawson enterprise applications in Hong Kong, mainland China, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam. The project kicked off in May 2009 and the company went live on the new Lawson applications in January 2010, on time and on budget.

"TAL is considered an industry leader in the supply chain area,” said Dr. Delman Lee, director of technology for TAL. “This upgrade and implementation of the Lawson Smart Office technology has really propelled us to the next level in supply chain management. The ability for users to personalize their user experience in Smart Office is a highly effective way to help users work in a more productive and dynamic manner.”

TAL has been using the Lawson M3 enterprise software system since 2002 for supply chain management, order management, capacity planning, production planning, inventory management, procurement, vendor managed inventory, material requirements planning, and finance. The company works closely with Lawson relating to the development of apparel-specific applications such as production planning, production scheduling, and supply chain technology.

Lawson Smart Office is a next-generation user interface designed to help customers enhance user productivity and collaboration, which helps make enterprise software more functional, effective and simpler to use. It will help users at TAL personalize their information workspace and bring together enterprise applications, business intelligence, desktop tools, and group collaboration – all in the context of the business task at hand.

“We also take comfort knowing that we've invested in a solution that equips our users with a knowledge-worker desktop that employs the latest visualization and usability techniques. We're also confident that this move will help take our efficiency to the next level," added Lee.

"During this economic climate, garment manufacturers are expected to do more with less. Companies that invest in technology that helps improve overall efficiency and effectiveness can have a competitive advantage," said Shane Cumming, industry director, Fashion, for Lawson in Asia Pacific & Japan. "Garment manufacturers that harness the power of Lawson solutions will have tools to help reduce overall costs, helping them emerge from the economic downturn as stronger organizations."
