Deckers Outdoor Corp, the maker of Ugg boots and Teva sandals, is to deploy the GT Nexus cloud-based platform to enhance collaboration and end-to-end visibility across its supply chain.

Deckers said the solution will help it collaborate better with suppliers in China, Vietnam and the Americas, as well as provide visibility into the movement of products and payments from order through delivery and settlement.

GT Nexus will replace EDI and point-to-point solutions with a multi-enterprise network solution that connects external parties and ties back into Deckers's ERP system. This will give real-time updates into performance across the physical and financial supply chains.

"Our main objective is improving visibility across our extended supply chain," said Mark Fegley, senior vice president of supply chain at Deckers.

"We'll have consistent visibility into what is really occurring in the factory, at the packing station, and in transit."

GT Nexus merged with TradeCard last month, with the combined company now operating as GT Nexus.
