Canadian apparel brand Kit and Ace has implemented WFX's cloud-based product lifecycle management (PLM) solution to drive growth by improving its product development processes.

The brand, which was set up by the wife and son of Lululemon founder Chip Wilson, produces technical luxury garments and sells them online.

By incorporating all technical and design information into one location, Kit and Ace wants to manage integrated supplier interactions, messaging, critical path and product approval management. It also hopes to reduce product cost and lead times, while enhancing product development lead times and providing seamless costing integration and visibility.

"Given that we want to connect everyone internally and our overseas vendors, the cloud was a natural choice and WFX has been super easy for our teams to adopt,” said Laura Rowse, head of sourcing at Kit and Ace.
