How PPJ digitalized operations with WFX to reduce costs and increase efficiency

Challenges they faced

When PPJ came to WFX, they were facing major challenges in integrating inventory and production across multiple companies. Their production processes were linked between inter-company, and they had one single CM source order from their parent company. This made material movements for raw materials and WIP incredibly complex due to the differences in reporting for compliance and MIS.

With over two dozen factories located in five different zones, they were struggling to ensure data integrity, consistency in workflows, and adherence to internal standard operating procedures and compliance. They also found it difficult to keep track of costs, deadlines, and the status of products at every stage of the manufacturing process.

The team was missing important deadlines as problems would often go undetected for long periods due to the lack of visibility. This also escalated costs and ate away at their revenues.

Impact after implementing WFX

  • WFX enabled PPJ to create a centralized digital system for managing and accessing digital style libraries and catalog items across the organization. This gives them access to all information about any style as it gets updated.
  • WFX allows leadership to control costs easily as they get a consolidated view of 'total costs' by expense heads, processes, items, and other parameters.
  • WFX helped PPJ make their production much more efficient, thanks to an integration between WFX and FastReact's planning tool. The integration allows them to save time, eliminate the chances of human errors.
  • The implementation of WFX has allowed PPJ to centralize their sourcing processes and automate supplier price lists, procurement delegation and approval of expenses. Thanks to this, errors have gone done and approvals have also gotten much quicker.
  • WFX has empowered PPJ to ensure compliance with all statutory regulations without manual data entry or inaccurate documentation.
