The UK division of USA-based workwear giant Williamson-Dickie Mfg Co is to deploy Enterprise Accelerator from Discover e-Solutions Ltd in a bid to achieve full collaborative processing with customers and suppliers.

DeSL's product suite will work directly with the Geac System 21 ERP solution already in use at Dickies (UK) Ltd.

Clive Mills, Dickies IT Manager, states: "The technology that the new product delivers is revolutionary and we've decided to invest in this rather than constantly changing our older legacy system. Enterprise Portals are key to collaborative processing and DeSL's Web Intelligence Portal delivers exactly what we need."

Other benefits cited by the company are its ability to make the supply chain visible and transparent; and that it provides real time, web based, order management for sales teams. It also offers Internet enabled supply chain event management, and delivers key information to the right people at the right time.

In today's global economy, margins are getting tighter and supply chains are more complex than ever. Enterprise Accelerator can deliver the flexibility to quickly react to these changing conditions - all our solutions are developed using Microsoft's .Net Framework and so our customers are able to deploy the latest technology whilst still protecting their original investments in existing ERP solutions", explains Colin Marks, MD of Cardiff-based DeSL.
