(01 NOVEMBER, 2011) Singapore listed F J Benjamin has signed on to WFX On-Demand’s Web-Based PLM Solution to use across all their in-house brands and global vendor base.
The Group is implementing WFX’s solution across their offices in Singapore, Hong Kong, Shenzhen and their vendor base across four countries.
F J Benjamin has numerous product development teams in place to manage different product categories but consolidated sourcing units and some common vendors.
WFX will provide a single point of information across all product related activities across all brands and vendors. With this visibility, F J Benjamin will be able to source more efficiently, reduce product costs and achieve higher margins.
“Our business has grown significantly and as a result various business units have adopted various processes for product development. We needed a single system to manage all these disconnected processes and WFX is simple enough to help us achieve that goal,” Odile Benjamin, Co-Creative Director.
