UK retailer White Stuff selects WFX Web PLM for Compliance Management

(WFX, JANUARY 08, 2010) White Stuff is the fashion lifestyle brand with 64 UK shops, over 100 wholesale accounts and a thriving home shopping business. Established in 1985 – the brand now sells men’s and women’s clothing and accessories sourcing its products from countries including India and China.

In order to manage their corporate social responsibility initiative, White Stuff has partnered with WFX and will be rolling out the WFX PLM Compliance Module to ensure their sourcing partners adhere to certain compliance standards. Through WFX PLM, White Stuff auditors based in different countries will be able to execute a set of compliance audits directly on-line such as verifying worker health and safety standards, adherence to local laws, and ethical standards.

“We expect our partners to be socially responsible and WFX will enable us to ensure that. Through the WFX technology, our international compliance officers will manage audit visits, work through resolutions, and we’ll be able to view all that information in real time.” Elissa Loyd, Sourcing Manager.
