Infor CloudSuite Industrial (SyteLine) has modernised business for V.T. Garment, a family-owned and operated apparel manufacturer headquartered in Bangkok.

The company achieved an on-time and in-full delivery rate of 98 percent since implementing SyteLine into its manufacturing IT processes a year ago.

V.T.Garment also achieved 97 percent inventory accuracy, reduced materials costs by five percent across purchasing and inventory, as well as improved customer order confirmation timings by 30 percent with Infor.

In addition, it increased the percentage of on-time-in-full deliveries to its global customers. All of this were achieved only after a year of implementation.

"Through Infor solutions, the company is now more agile and focused on our end customer, which is crucial in the fast-paced fashion industry," said Group managing director, V.T. Garment Co., Ltd, Chalumpon Lotharukpong.

Tier-one ERP

The burgeoning demands from apparel brands that are outsourcing their manufacturing, drove V.T. Garment to adopt a tier-one Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system.

This ERP system helped the company to modernise and standardise its operational processes.

Thanks to Infor CloudSuite Industrial, the Thai company has been able to organise its warehousing, and benefit from enhanced visibility into all aspects of the business.

Infor CloudSuite Industrial is not only used at all locations in Thailand, but also used via a private cloud that provides the ERP software to V.T Garment employees in Myanmar.

"By shortening lead times for each customer order through Infor CloudSuite Industrial, V.T. Garment is now able to reduce the time it takes to deliver to its apparel clients a new design in the right size and colour, which helps them avoid missed customer sales," said Helen Masters, Vice President, Infor ASEAN.
