Kenya-based clothing manufacturing giant United Aryan (UAL) has selected the WFX Cloud ERP software for its African production facilities.

The company makes apparel for men, women and children, with customers in the US, Canada and Europe including Levis, JC Penney, Wal-Mart, Nygard, H&M, Sears & Ross Stores.

UAL operates two production facilities with a capacity of 100,000 pieces/day and 8,000 employees. It is set to open another production facility by mid-2013 which will further increase capacity and create more jobs.

Managed by Pankaj and Amit Bedi, UAL has grown fast speed since its inception in 2002.

"We have been relying on home-grown software and Excel but, considering our double digit growth and future expansion plans, we recognise a great need for an integrated system to ensure that we not only better our production but can manage our overall business more efficiently," explains managing director Amit Bedi.
