BeProduct, a fashion technology provider has lately announced about the successful, wide scale implementation of its collaborative Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) platform throughout the multinational, multi-brand operations of sustainable childrenswear business Kanopy Brands, Inc.
Kanopy is using BeProduct for everything, from style creation to sourcing and follow up. BeProduct’s cutting edge PLM has allowed the brand to become faster, more agile and leaner in all the operations.
Kanopy Brands is a modern business and its agile concept to consumer models places strong emphasis on communication and sustainability. The company takes pride as it uses organic cotton and does extensive efforts to minimize the use of plastics, employment of biodegradable hangers and other best practices which are made possible by extremely close supply chain relationships that span countries like Peru, Haiti, India, China and Cambodia.
Chris Rork, CEO, Kanopy Brands Inc. explained, “Our business relies on global collaboration. We’re unique in that we might have a designer in Paris working on garment designs, an artist in Atlanta applying graphics, and a product manager in India applying trims – all to the same product, and all with the need to work seamlessly together. And there was no way for us to do that using traditional tools.”
Chris recognised the need for a new generation of product development solution from the moment the Kanopy business was founded, and quickly selected BeProduct due to its potent combination of accessibility, configurability, and functionality.
In a short span of time, Kanopy has been able to fully exploit the potential of BeProduct, onboarding all close suppliers, and delivering significant efficiency savings throughout its collaborative design, development and sourcing practices.
Following the successful implementation, BeProduct and Kanopy maintain a close working relationship, with Kanopy influencing the development of BeProduct’s PLM solution, and the BeProduct team providing a support that will allow the retailer’s business to continue to grow in the future.
Oshana Pinto, Director of Business Development, BeProduct added, “We are thrilled to have had the opportunity work with the Kanopy team to bring their vision for the business to life. Their unique approach to collaboration and sourcing, and their commitment to sustainability lend themselves perfectly to a new generation of PLM, and we look forward to building on our solution to provide even more opportunities for theirs and other businesses to employ best practices throughout their product lifecycles.”
