Outdoor Apparel Leader Gains Scalability and Visibility, Cuts Costs with Microsoft Dynamics AX-based Solution
Patagonia, a global provider of outdoor apparel and gear, realized its technology and processes were unable to support the company with the scalability and visibility to realize its market and revenue potential. The company implemented Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 together with the Sunrise Apparel and Footwear Template and optimized key business processes. Patagonia achieved its desired scalability and cut costs associated with growth by two-thirds. Visibility into all aspects of the business gives decision makers the ability to take control and respond to changes in demand and market trends in a timely manner. By improving inventory turns by up to 30 percent and fill rates by up to 10 percent, Patagonia realizes unprecedented double-digit growth and pursues its environmental mission with increased vigor.
