Vlisco reduces lead time by fifty percent with Quintiq Company Planner

January 06, 2011 | 's-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands

Since 1846, the Dutch-based company Vlisco has been designing and producing colorful fashion fabrics. The company initially focused on the Dutch and Dutch-Indonesian markets. By the end of the nineteenth century, the West-African market was also well developed. After the Second World War, this became Vlisco?s main market. Today, Vlisco is an undisputed market leader in Benin, Nigeria, Togo, Ghana, Ivory Coast and Congo. In 2010, Gamma Holding sold Vlisco to the private equity firm Actis.

For a long time, planning was performed manually at Vlisco. However, with approximately four hundred concurrent orders and twenty five different treatments per order, this became increasingly difficult. In order to improve the planning process, Vlisco started to look for a new planning and scheduling solution.

An important reason for selecting Quintiq was the logistics approach . The other parties were offering software. Quintiq came with a logistic solution for Vlisco's problems.

Ron van Hout, Manager Planning and Warehouse at Vlisco: "For a long time, our delivery reliability was between fifty and sixty percent. This has improved to eighty and sometimes ninety percent."
