Pantherella is a British manufacturer of luxury socks. The company is a part of the family owned HJ Sock Group, specialists in hosieries since 1882.
Pantherella now supplies many premium fashion retailers in the UK and also America from its New Ark offices. Clients include the well-known London stores Harrods and Selfridges. In the last year, they have manufactured over a million pairs of high-grade socks from their site in Leister, and the demand is growing.
TRIMIT Fashion - to Support Growth
This continued success of the Pantherella brand created a need for a new system to run its expanding business operations. The growing company needed a system that would support its growth well into the future and could also be extended to meet the requirements of all companies within the HJ Sock Group. To meet these demands, Pantherella decided to go ahead with TRIMIT Fashion.
One of the reasons behind this decision is that TRIMIT Fashion is Microsoft Dynamics NAV-based and as such will benefit from Microsoft’s dedication to ongoing development.
Configuration, Visibility, and Optimization
Pantherella will make use of TRIMIT’s powerful production configuration tool, which will provide product data management bringing visibility to the production process and optimizing planning.
The system stores of template designs will provide the ability to customize specific designs for customers. This means that as well as making it quicker to produce bills-of-materials it will also be easier for Pantherella to introduce specific requirements around branding, labelling and packaging. This in turn will help to optimize the efficiency of the business.
Improving the Manufacturing Process
Another plus for Pantherella is the specific enhancements for yarn control and machine groups that have been written into the software. The special functions will improve the manufacturing process by eliminating BOM of material waste, ensuring optimum use of each knitting machine.
Full Stock Visibility Across Countries
The TRIMIT system will provide Pantherella’s US division in New York with full visibility of its own warehouse stock and stocks held in the UK, as well as being able to see the production plan and work in progress of the UK site without having to call for information.
In2grate Business Solutions is a UK Microsoft Gold Partner for Microsoft Dynamics NAV and has been selected to provide this integrated system by Pantherella.
