PTC has completed implementation of FlexPLM, a solution for Retail, Footwear and Apparel (RFA) industries, at Welspun Global Brands.
The solution provides line planning, specification management, merchandising and other essential PLM capabilities for managing a company’s complete assortment of products. This implementation allows Welspun to eliminate global boundaries and enhance global collaboration by providing real-time data access.
PTC started working with Welspun in 2010 months ago when their FlexPLM solution was selected to optimize product development processes. Welspun needed a solution that would enable them to reduce time required to develop new products significantly and also transform disparate processes and legacy technology platforms to provide the speed and agility required to achieve the desired growth potential.
PTC’s Strategic Services Partner for the enterprise business market in India, ITC Infotech implemented FlexPLM as the common technology across locations, enabling open innovation, global collaboration and integrated focus to reduce cycle time.
Jeffery W Wilmot, SVP & Country Manager, PTC India, commented, “Our Retail, Footwear and Apparel Offering, FlexPLM is rapidly becoming the Industry standard and we are excited about our expanded partnership with Welspun. PTC continues to deliver a Product and Service advantage to our customers that focus on time to value. Our focus on RFA is seen a competitive advantage for our customers like Welspun and we look forward to working closely with them for many years to come and their global brands continue to grow.”
Subrata Pal, Assistant Vice President, Welspun India, said, “In Today’s competitive business scenario, time to market and cross functional global collaboration is vital to product development. Implementation of FlexPLM is the key milestone targeted to achieve these strategic product development goals.”
