Like many legacy companies, Bhartiya Fashion was facing challenges around managing their supply chain and logistics processes efficiently. As the company grew, their processes became siloed and outdated which made it impossible to bring all the systems together. This resulted in high operational costs and delays due to manual processes.
With lead times in the fashion industry reducing all around them, they knew they would lose out on new orders if they did not respond quickly enough to their customers’ demands for faster delivery. Bhartiya felt a real need for more efficient ways of running their operations and reducing their speed to market.
The company realized that they needed an integrated solution that would allow them to collaborate across departments, automate processes and deliver faster results at lower costs. However, finding the right digital solution was no easy feat. They were looking for a platform that would be both easy to use and flexible enough to integrate seamlessly with all of their factory functions.

We are a multi-divisional business, with different products, so it is important for us to track profitability and track the bottom line of every business separately. We need to know very well where we are making better margins, where the margins are not there so that we can make better business decisions. With integrated software like WFX—you can do your processes faster, place orders faster and track your materials faster. This helps us reduce leads and service our customers much better.Manoj KhattarDirector, Bhartiya International Ltd.
