Private label clothing supplier Gonzales Enterprises, which trades as Fifth Sun Apparel, has selected the Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP solution to manage its supply chain and allow for continued expansion.

The company, whose customers include retailers such as Target and Wal-Mart, as well as niche stores like Hot Topic and Forever 21, is undergoing rapid growth.

It expects the new tool to help streamline reporting and provide the relevant information necessary to make business decisions.

"AX provides for greater visibility and management though the work flow functionality. Furthermore the user interface is in a very familiar format," adds BJ LaRossa, executive vice president of Fifth Sun.

The solution, which is being implemented by Sunrise Technologies, manages the complexity of style, colour, size, and configuration of an apparel item. It also offers a financial analysis of internal and external projects, and real-time visibility into inventory status.
