Specialist apparel software vendor XeBusiness has set up a re-seller arrangement in Malaysia with local IT company Alphamatic Systems.

Under the new agreement, Alphamatic Systems will market and support the XeBusiness manufacturing and distribution system (Xe-ERP) in Malaysia, focusing on the large number of garment and textile manufacturers in the country who export to western Europe and the US.

Malaysian apparel and textile companies are increasingly using IT systems to address best practice issues like productivity, cost reduction, quality and added value generation to ward off the competitive threat from regions such as China.
