JAPAN: Knitwear Maker Marukin Cuts Costs With Movex
Leading Japanese knitwear manufacturer Marukin Co Ltd said on Monday it is to continue its ambitious expansion plans after successfully implementing the Intentia Movex Collaboration solution in an attempt to slash costs and improve efficiency.
Marukin, which produces over 50 per cent of its garments in China, now has real-time daily access to financial data such as revenues and gross margins as well as improved access to production forecasts, efficient delivery planning, information on the time and date of shipments, the vessel name and shipping schedules.
It also brings to an end a three year partnership between the two firms which saw Marukin overhaul its entire IT infrastructure so it could benefit from the sharing of real-time information over the web.
"We understand the issues and challenges faced by businesses in the apparel, accessory and footwear industry," said David Hope, managing director, Intentia Asia Pacific. "That's why Movex Fashion has been built from scratch to meet the growing demands and requirements of this unique industry."
