Infor PLM to support expansion plans for Dimensions Clothing

Mar '09
Infor announced that Dimensions Clothing Ltd, a leading provider of corporate clothing to some of the UK's largest companies has deployed Infor PLM Runtime to streamline its global product lifecycle management and support ambitious growth plans. The solution, which will help manage thousands of clothing patterns for more than 1 million products each month, went live in February 2009 for 25 users following a 10 month implementation.

Dimensions' previous solution was a modified Freeboarders system (from Lawson) and spreadsheets, which could not keep pace with increasing customer demand. Following significant expansion plans, Dimensions needed a proactive solution that could manage the lifecycle of all products across the world in an accurate and consistent fashion, facilitate high quality standards and innovation, and ensure fast speed to market.

After conducting extensive research on potential PLM solutions, Infor PLM Runtime was selected as it was the most user-friendly solution and contained inherent flexibility to grow with the company's ambitious global expansion plans. One of Dimensions' greatest challenges is managing multi-faceted products and millions of different SKUs, and through working with Infor's professional services team, the system was tailored to meet these specific needs.

"In order to ensure strong business growth while maintaining rigorous customer service standards, it was imperative that our chosen solution could support our entire product lifecycle management, integrating design and engineering information with sourcing and the overall supply chain, ensuring compliance and facilitating fast, high quality product development," comments Derek Boyden, technical director at Dimensions. "Through using Infor PLM we expect to achieve greater consistency and economies of scale as well as realise significant efficiencies."
