Industry leading athleisure company relies on Lectra Kubix Link PLM to connect the dots from design to sales

With a sportswear industry booming, it is key for Fitness companies to digitalize, connect the dots to their supply chain to keep up with demand and thrive in an extremely competitive environment and uncertain world.

Identifying the challenges in product development process

Being disconnected from suppliers, double data entry, and extracting information from multiple software applications, an industry-leading fitness company realized they needed to change their methods in their product development process and adjust them quickly. Over the years it became difficult to manage all their systems and even harder to get full adoption across the supply and offer them the agility they need. This caused confusion and inefficiencies between both their suppliers and their product development team.

A solution for the entire design-to-sales process at your fingertips

From their product development and technical design teams, to their suppliers all around the world, one company needed a concise platform that integrated all their data into one place, with easy to use tracking of production ready products, from start to finish and to view updated entries in real-time. Therefore, they decided to integrate Kubix Link, a unique and endlessly adaptable ecosystem of fashion PLM, PIM, and DAM capabilities. Kubix Link was designed to house and monitor the entire design-to-sales process, anytime, anywhere. You can share this platform with everyone in the supply chain from any device, including mobile. From designers to C-level executives, all forms of communication can be found on Kubix Link due to the option of full integration of other IT systems such as ERP, CRM, and WMS. This allows for a simple funnel of contact with up-to-date information.
