stichd Selects Logility to Drive Supply Chain Growth and Attract Talent
Logility, Inc., a leader in supply chain innovation powering the sustainable and resilient enterprise, today announced stichd, a Netherlands-based product licensing company and division of PUMA, has chosen the Logility Digital Supply Chain Platform to support its ambitious growth strategy.
"Growth is our top priority. To continue achieving our goals, it was critical to find a planning platform with more sophisticated forecasting and clear visibility capabilities, but that is also easy for our employees to use," said Rogier Wijnhoven, COO, stichd. "Logility not only had the technology we needed, but the apparel industry expertise and forward-looking vision we were looking for in a partner."
stichd specializes in the design, production and distribution of high-quality bodywear, legwear, swimwear, and fanwear. As the company looks to expand, both in-store and online, demand volatility and complexity are increasing. In order to continue driving product availability while streamlining inventory, stichd needed a technology partner that can optimize working capital and provide better supply chain visibility.
The Logility Digital Supply Chain Platform enables better decision making by leveraging artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and automation to continuously sense, analyze and update activity in the digital supply chain - ensuring greater granularity and greater operational performance at all times. Its sales and operations planning (S&OP) functionality helps to align plans across multiple divisions and locations, and track forecast and inventory performance over time. Further, the platform's user friendly interface and deep analytics reduce complexity and make it easier to attract and retain top planning talent along the way.
"Demand planners are continually expected to look further into the future and design roadmaps that account for a variety of different planning scenarios. Logility's solutions give our planners a clearer, more detailed view of what's ahad and facilitates necessary collaboration between planning teams," continued Wijnhoven.
"Logility is uniquely positioned to support organizations at every step in their supply chain journey. Our intuitive solutions are rooted in cognitive planning and built to shepherd today's enterprises through both growth and disruption," said Allan Dow, president of Logility. "We look forward to supporting stichd through this next phase of expansion and helping them take their supply chain to the next level."
