Leading Scottish specialist clothing and workwear supplier Lynben, having contracted for a replacement business management and management information system in mid October, have gone 'live' on the system in just three weeks.
Industry specialist IT vendor XeBusiness have supplied their flagship package Xe-ERP to handle Lynben's CRM, Finished Inventory, CMT and MRP requirements. The Xe-ERP wearer pack module will also be deployed to allow Lynben to manage and ship garment requirements down to individual employee level as a value added service to both end users and other corporatewear suppliers.
The company was previously using a generic, cross industry system that has been replaced by the specialist XeBusiness product. The accounting part of the previous system will continue in use with a standard integration link into Xe-ERP.
The new system is expected to make a strategic contribution to supporting Lynben's planned growth and on-going customer service improvement and cost management programmes.
Commenting on the award of the implementation contract to XeBusiness, Iain Campbell, Director of Lynben said:
"Having been involved in working with computer systems in the company before, I can say without hesitation that the XeBusiness product is the best we have seen to date in terms of functionality and presentation. The system is also evidently easy to implement given that we have completed the process of going 'live' in three weeks with close support from the XeBusiness team."
David Cullis, Chief Executive of XeBusiness in response said:
"We are delighted to be working with an innovative workwear supplier like Lynben whose philosophy of getting things done quickly and effectively mirrors our own. We look forward to closely partnering them to ensure our system provides their business with maximum benefit."
