Fashion lifestyle brand White Stuff has selected the PLM Compliance Module from WFX to help manage corporate social responsibility across its supply chain.

The firm, which operates 64 UK shops, over 100 wholesale accounts and a thriving home shopping business, hopes the software will ensure suppliers in countries such as India and China adhere to certain compliance standards.

Through WFX PLM, White Stuff auditors based in different countries will be able to carry out compliance audits directly on-line, including verifying worker health and safety standards, adherence to local laws, and ethical standards.

“Our international compliance officers will manage audit visits, work through resolutions, and we’ll be able to view all that information in real time,” explains White Stuff sourcing manager Elissa Loyd.
