This module has been recently added to Sync’s existing portfolio of 15 modules to allow for more detailed information, quicker decision making & early identification of issues. Visually appealing dashboards are included in the module to give users a comprehensive summarized view of the department, highlighting potential late deliveries & allowing management to make necessary adjustments to shorten lead times & result in timeous delivery of an order.
Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) is a top level enterprise strategy that is being used by more & more leading retailers & brand manufacturers across the globe as industry pressure increases to produce the right products, at the right place, at the right time.
For the apparel industry, implementing a PLM system means successful collaboration of the entire business process, providing visibility into the supply chain from conception of a design through to completion of the end product.
An effective PLM strategy encourages different teams & departments to synchronise & communicate, makes crucial information available at the click of a button & integrates design & product development with the rest of the supply chain, making it possible to identify potential delays or problems before they actually become such.
In addition, the Task module provides end-to-end visibility and makes it easy to manage the various activities performed throughout the process. It enables internal & external users to prioritize their work & prompts them to do certain activities on a daily basis, simplifying & streamlining the process & ensuring on-time delivery.
Many existing retail systems are not all-encompassing & are missing vital elements such as PLM, Task management & Vendor Portals. Sync closes the gap by providing a comprehensive software solution for clothing businesses. It can be used on its own or in conjunction with existing software systems to fill the gap & enable companies to adopt a PLM strategy for more streamlined, effective business processes.
