Quang Viet Enterprise Co (QVE), the largest Nike apparel manufacturing partner in Vietnam has completed implementation of the integrated XeBusiness Time and Attendance and Production Control system modules within their Ho Chi Minh City manufacturing plants. The system also automatically produces payment information (build-up-to-gross pay) with an automatic link to a local payroll system that deals with local taxation and net pay deduction items.
Employing over 6500 people over 6 manufacturing plants on a single site, QVE Vietnam, implemented the systems to facilitate conformance with their best practice and ethical manufacturing programmes.
The modules are part of the Xe-Business flagship specialist business management and management information system, Xe-ERP, developed specifically for Apparel and Textile suppliers trading globally. Additional modules covering Material Requirements Planning (MRP), Capacity Planning and Raw Materials Management will be added in subsequent implementation phases.
Manchester (UK) based XeBusiness worked with teams from QVE and its local re-seller, Gartex Solutions Group, to implement the modules that were customised to reflect local labour process and information requirements. Automatic data capture equipment for the project (based on bar code scanning technology) was supplied by Belgium based Captor NV, a strategic XeBusiness hardware partner.
A strategic part of the software implementation was the development and provision of corporate buyer compliant reporting information to ensure buyers are kept aware of work in progress and delivery date shipment issues and also to ensure compliance with ethical manufacturing programmes for developing regions covering the welfare of local workforces in line with international standards and local labour
"The system is already transforming our approach to managing time and attendance and shop-floor production and it will underpin our drive to continuously improve all aspects of our performance" says Eric Wu, VP and General Manager of QVE, Vietnam. "It will additionally facilitate good relations with our workforce in ensuring they are paid fairly and accurately" ,he added.
David Cullis, Chief Executive, of XeBusiness says in response; "Despite the challenging scale of the project in terms of the large number of people the system effects over multiple digitally linked plants, the effort we made up-front to understand what was required locally has paid off. We are looking forward to rolling out the system to other garment and textile manufacturing sites in Vietnam."
