Oakland, Calif. -- GT Nexus announced Tuesday that Liz Claiborne has extended its contract for a supply chain visibility and control platform.
Delivered as a cloud service, the platform gives Liz Claiborne the capability to tightly monitor and control inventory flows between suppliers, logistics providers, distribution centers and customers.
"GT Nexus has been a key part of our global supply chain management strategy for years," said Bob Keller, VP supply chain, logistics & administration at Liz Claiborne. "We have automated the highly complex coordination of inventory movement in the cloud where our entire network of supply chain partners all work against a single information set. That is the only way you can run an agile supply chain."
GT Nexus connects Liz Claiborne to its global partner network and provides visibility across the supply chain, from a broad shipment level view down to specific style and color level detail.
Visibility at Liz Claiborne begins when orders are placed with suppliers. From there, the platform tracks inventory flows from booking at origin, international transport, through delivery to the distribution centers. All inventory and supply chain information is linked and stored centrally in the cloud. Partners, internal stakeholders and the Liz Claiborne supply chain team operate off a core set of information. The GT Nexus Supply Chain Intelligence engine allows for performance analytics, providing the ability to measure and analyze performance, based on what actually happened. Partner performance, supply chain velocity, data quality and sourcing trends can all be analyzed, across the different Liz Claiborne brands.
