Concept Group has invested in Fast React's Vision PLM software solution in order to help the company take control of its product development and production processes.

Concept, owner of fashion brands Concept Club, Acoola, Bestia and Infinity, said it had experienced a rapid increase in the amount of data it had to handle daily, yet its processes had remained the same.

It added that, having a number of offices in different locations meant the firm's current way of planning, tracking and communicating became onerous and resulted in additional time and excess costs.

"Vision's critical path gave us control over all stages of development and production," said Elena Pazuhina, production director at Concept Group. "This improved our planning processes and highlighted and ‘bottlenecks' reducing any firefighting that we had previously encountered. We have also been able to improve our budget planning through Vision."
