Jordache Enterprises, a global apparel manufacturer with factories in 16 countries, is to implement the proCube business intelligence application from Satori Group Inc for its enterprise-wide financial/operational planning, reporting and analysis system.

The rollout, which also includes development of a data warehouse and AS 400 connectivity, will support Jordache's sales, production, merchandise planning, and reporting groups.

New York City-based Jordache produces over 30 million garments per year under the Jordache Originals label, and also markets such brands as Gasoline, FUBU ladies, FUBU girls, KIKIT, and United States Polo Association.

It believes deploying proCube will provide the flexibility to streamline its complex planning, reporting and analysis tasks.

"We currently maintain historical data for 18 companies in our general ledger application. We need to slice and dice financial and operational data to produce income statements, balance sheets, trial balances, and consolidation and allocation reports. These reports are mission-critical and support everyone from production, sales, and finance to our merchandise planners and corporate executives. It's no small task," said Joe Taylor, CFO at Jordache.

"The apparel manufacturing industry has to analyse an incredible amount of data, but it is often difficult to access and transform it into meaningful information to support the enterprise at large," said David Libesman, CEO of the Satori Group.

"With proCube, Jordache will easily access and leverage the data residing in its existing systems to streamline the planning, reporting and analysis process. The benefits derived from Satori's scalable solution will be immediate and enable Jordache to maintain near real-time insight into its financial and operational universe."
