EAM Maliban Group scales globally with WFX

Challenges they faced

EAM Maliban was having troubles in managing sales orders, production planning, and material sourcing processes as the volume of customer orders increased. There was a lot of data entry that had to be done manually.

Time wastage and errors were the results of the disjointed information flow between their many order processing phases and production activities.

The company was also losing money on some styles since they didn't have a real-time view of style profitability to optimize procurement and set proper budgets for new orders. .


WFX's Cloud Enterprise Suite has helped us transform into a more digitally savvy firm, allowing us to manage our operations better.
