Digital Transformation for an efficient future.

Vlisco updated their IT infrastructure to improve operations and prepare the business for the future.

They needed to be able to react quickly to changing market needs and have an integrated view of all operations. They worked with Redfaire
International’s Dutch partner Cadran Consultancy to:

  • Move all sites and departments onto JD Edwards 9.1.
  • Standardize processes.
  • Deliver better UX through localizations.








A proactive partner in putting forth new proposals and finding pragmatic solutions for problems in the processes and the project as a whole. It was clear that their consultants had extensive knowledge of the processes and were very capable of meeting our requirements.

Customer Challenge

Vlisco’s divisions and sites were operating on different versions of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne. They wanted to standardize the system and processes to deliver a 360° view of operations. Vlisco also wanted to ensure that the IT system would be flexible enough to meet changing market demands and evolve in line with the business environment.

The goals of the project were to:

  • Improve management information.
  • Optimize and standardize processes.
  • Create systems that would adapt and drive innovation.
  • Create transparency in the organization with an up-to-date integrated system

Thanks to the JD Edwards Apparel module, it is easy for the company to keep track of the multiple products that are created. The module greatly simplifies managing articles with multiple attributes (different sizes, colors, etc.) and includes matrix windows with systematic overviews of existing variants that can be used during various queries and transactions.

Some key results include:

  • Better business intelligence across operations, in Manufacturing, Sales and Finance.
  • Better inventory management thanks to the use of standardized product codes across all sites.
  • More efficient order processing.
  • Faster product launches thanks to the ability to pass down high-level design features to different colors and sizes.
  • Each site now has a localized setup ensuring users can work in their own languages and currencies.
  • The new system has ensured Vlisco is more agile and has significantly improved key processes
    such as sales order fulfilment.
