Grupo Kaltex recently selected Lectra Fashion PLM to assist the company in connecting design and product development teams at its U.S. subsidiary Revman International and its Mexican manufacturing division Kaltex Home.
The initiative aims to stimulate a more collaborative work environment. Both subsidiaries will adopt Lectra's platform to improve its structure and to align the process across its different design and development teams. As a result, Kaltex expects to reduce the time spent to create new products, improve its quality and add more brands to its portfolio.
To develop the program, experts from Lectra worked closely with Grupo Kaltex to understand its business model and identify its strengths and challenges.
"To achieve our goals for future expansion, we needed to find a universal approach to managing our product which would not sacrifice our reputation for quality and service," Kaltex North America President Hebe Schecte said. "We chose Lectra because their industry experience and reputation are unmatched. They listened to what we had to say and offered us practical solutions that would let us communicate in real time between different design and development teams, so that we could collaborate more effectively and maintain visibility over a diverse collection of international product lines, across different companies and divisions, on one unified platform."
