How WFX Enables Sarah Flint to Be More Strategic

Challenges they faced

Before WFX PLM, Sarah Flint faced operational challenges that impacted their efficiency. Key data, essential for informed decision-making, was dispersed across various platforms, leading to a lack of visibility and coherence. This fragmentation extended to their communication methods as well, with the team relying heavily on emails and isolated systems, creating silos within their team.

Compounding these issues were the inefficiencies inherent in their manual processes. The creation of style sheets and Bills of Materials (BOMs) on multiple systems was redundant and time-consuming.

Furthermore, the brand struggled with version control, finding it challenging to track and manage product versions effectively due to the disorganized nature of their data storage. These challenges were exacerbated by the resource-intensive nature of their documentation processes, consuming excessive manpower and limiting overall productivity.

With WFX, our documentation team now operates at maximum efficiency. What previously required a team of 6 is now handled seamlessly by a team of 4. This has freed up valuable time and energy, allowing us to think strategically about product development and long-term goals.
