Product Lifecycle Management
Let’s consider that in reality your most valuable asset is your range of products. They have to be developed, sourced and produced in a way that meets your brands’ or clients needs and values and should stand up to scrutiny whilst being affordable and on time. Those of us in industries like fashion, sportswear, footwear and accessories where there is a high turnover of product in an ever shorter and more turbulent space of time know how hard this can be to manage and keep sight of. This is why you use PLM. It brings it all together in a way where you can create, develop, share, produce and control your product. It makes so much sense and makes the past look like the stone ages.

The liberation of replacing spreadsheets with process driven systems.
Making the business case for PLM is not actually that difficult. At the end of the day, most businesses in fashion, sportswear, footwear, homeware and accessories are still using nothing more sophisticated than spreadsheets, email and shared drives to manage what is arguably the most important process to business survival.

We are looking at a situation where a long string of independently linked processes, a plethora of product tracking or specification related spreadsheets, emails covering 6 to 12 months of development and production per product, data that is kept in ways that cannot be shared with other business systems, the resulting repetition of entering the same details across different sheets, messages and systems, the errors associated with all of these, the lack of visibility until something arrives late, the difficulty in seeing what your margins are going to be, not being able to negotiate on time, not knowing a component was rejected, using outdated grading or sizing….. and the list goes on with all the examples you can bring from your own business.

So, how much is 70 to 80% reduction in data entry, complete visibility of actual processes, instant reporting of any status, integrated teams, supplier interaction, knowledge of outstanding tasks, automatically filed messaging, cost and margin visibility or accuracy worth to your business? In most cases allot more than the cost of a system. That is if we don’t include the smiles when better thought through product is delivered to market quicker.

Built in flexibility means our PLM will support you as you grow and evolve.

In our opinion it is really important that you see your system as a flexible, almost organic entity. It cannot be a static thing that you install one day and hope it is going to be right for the next 5 or 10 years of your business. It needs to evolve, expand or even contract if needed.

With the WFX Cloud PLM system you have that. Upgrades to the system are made multiple times per year, ensuring that you always have a ‘new’ system, even after using it for years. Expanding it is easy as well. There is so much functionality that it is unlikely you will be using all of it on day one. You can switch further functions on as you need to or expand the system with new module or plugins such as the Adobe Illustrator plugin, the Quality Audit Management suite or the Digital Asset Management Module.

WFX is a leader in the Cloud PLM space for fashion and similar businesses. It is naturally built to integrate with other systems and is the global fashion PLM partner for Netsuite, meaning there are seamless integrations and existing working relationships in place across the solution architecture and implementation teams.

Perfit and the WFX support team will be there along the way to help you. Whenever your business needs evolve or change you can rely on us to guide you through, resulting in the set of tools and processes that makes sense at that time without the need to get a new system.

* PDM systems have a standard minimum of 4 users. PLM systems have a standard minimum of 5 users. Our standard subscriptions include all hosting, upgrades and 24/7 support. In addition to the subscriptions our quotes will specify the cost for activation or implementation / configuration / training costs. WFX also have great expansion modules that you may choose to add on. Custom quotes and alternate pricing are available for corporate and enterprise clients who require 15 or more users.

Why in the Cloud?

True Cloud applications can make the difference between ‘Where do we start?’ and ‘Let’s get started!’. The pre-built processes, adaptability and shorter implementation and training times give numerous benefits in comparison to traditional IT infrastructures.

It is the difference between buying a plane to get from A to B and booking your chosen seats, custom meal and lounge access on a reliable airline. You still get from A to B, but without having to do everything that is involved in running an airline. You get your mission accomplished in comfort and style without 100% of the responsibility.
