IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announced that Foundation Garments Ltd., a Sri Lankan apparel manufacturer which is a fully owned subsidiary of Jinadasa Holdings, has chosen IFS Applications 8 to streamline its business processes. The solution will cover many processes which are specific to the apparel industry, especially finance, distribution and the much required merchandising functionality. Jinadasa Holdings has a 37-year history in apparel manufacturing and exporting and is one of the significant vendors to some of the world’s leading apparel brands such as Victoria’s Secret, Calvin Klein, Jockey, H&M and Hanes. With a monthly capacity of over 3.3 million pieces of clothing in its production plants in Sri Lanka and Cambodia, it positions itself as the specialist sleepwear vendor of Sri Lanka under its new corporate brand, Foundation Garments. “We are delighted with the rapid deployment of the IFS solution, which helps us ensure short time in delivering value,” said Dilanka Jinadasa, Director – Foundation Garments. “By implementing a complete business solution, we expect to build more capacity in the existing resources and to eliminate report-making which will enable our existing merchandisers churn out volumes twofold. We were seeking a solutions partner who could give form to our plans for a real game-changer and found it in IFS.” “Jinadasa Holdings is a well-known and reputed company in the garment industry, and we were very eager to work with such an entity to expand our solution footprint into this established and growing industry. The solution map we presented to Jinadasa Holdings will eventually cover the end-to-end process of its materials planning to finished goods delivery – in this case ‘the garment’. The product shown and the expectations matched. Already, work has commenced targeting a short project life cycle due to the upcoming winter season and both teams are fully engaged for a quick delivery. We are happy and pleased about the partnership which gives us much promise in the industry,” said Shiraz Lye, Director Sales and Marketing of IFS South Asia.
