Randa Accessories

The Challenge:

Randa has a large, global supply chain network across its 75 brands. The company has clear communication processes and clear expectations from partners, but the lack of a centralized database made it difficult to collaborate effectively with partners. Emailbased file sharing and excessive dependence on localized spreadsheets made it difficult to enforce process compliance. Also, since a major part of their supplier network was based in China, language was a challenge.

The Solution:

YuniquePLM’s powerful supplier collaboration functionality facilitated real time collaboration with supply chain partners. It enables designers and merchandisers to share very detailed specification packages with suppliers and check the status of samples and production models right down to the style level. Gone are spreadsheets stored in multiple locations and emails flying constantly.

The Benefits:

Regular vendor participation and real-time collaboration with supply chain partners ensure that issues surface before they affect product deadlines. YuniquePLM ensured real-time collaboration with global supply chain partners. It ensured regular vendor participation, improved partner communication and facilitated quicker responses. Key benefits are:

  • Approximately two-days time cut from the sample development process.
  • Vendors collaborate more effectively by sharing comments and advising the status of samples and quotes on a daily basis.
  • All sample and quote information is kept together with corresponding styles and is easy to reference when required.
  • Vendors embraced YuniquePLM and are actively recommending process improvements.
  • Dashboards and reports on supplier login ensure that expectations from Randa are clear.

Our experience working with YuniquePLM is similar to using email. You use it every day, all day long and can’t manage the complexities of your job without it.
