BeProduct implements PLM platform at Kanopy Brands

November 02, 2018 - United States Of America

Fashion technology house, BeProduct, has announced the successful, wide-scale implementation of its collaborative Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) platform throughout the multinational, multi-brand operations of Kanopy Brands. Kanopy designs and produces a comprehensive range of children’s apparel and accessories, which are sold internationally.

Experienced in traditional PLM, Chris Rock, Kanopy’s CEO recognised the need for a new generation of product development solution from the moment the Kanopy business was founded, and quickly selected BeProduct due to its potent combination of accessibility, configurability, and functionality, according to BeProduct.

“When I started the company, the first thing I did was to approach BeProduct. I knew our entire business model was going to be driven by efficiency savings, and it took just a few days of testing to figure out the platform had the horsepower and the capabilities to power our business and empower our teams to work together. The affordability, functionality, and speed of implementation combined were a trifecta of excellence for us,” Rock said.

In a short span of time, Kanopy has been able to fully exploit the potential of BeProduct, on-boarding all close suppliers, and delivering significant efficiency savings throughout its collaborative design, development and sourcing practices.

“We use BeProduct for everything from style creation to sourcing and follow-up, it’s quickly become our primary global collaboration tool. Throughout design, development, and sourcing, implementing BeProduct has allowed us to become faster, more agile, and leaner in our operations, and just months after implementation we’re already seeing a direct return on investment,” Rock added.

Following the initial implementation, BeProduct and Kanopy maintain a close working relationship, with Kanopy influencing the development of BeProduct’s PLM solution, and the BeProduct team providing a level of support that will allow the Kanopy business to continue to flourish in the future.

“We are thrilled to have had the opportunity work with the Kanopy team to bring their vision for the business to life. Their unique approach to collaboration and sourcing, and their commitment to sustainability lend themselves perfectly to a new generation of PLM, and we look forward to building on our solution to provide even more opportunities for theirs and other businesses to employ best practices throughout their product lifecycles,” BeProduct director of business development Oshana Pinto said.
