Grand Forest Taps Simparel To Streamline Manufacturing And Distribution Operations       

NEW YORK CITY — May 2, 2016 — Simparel Inc. has announced that protective apparel manufacturer and distributor Grand Forest Inc. will soon begin implementation of the integrated Simparel® ERP and Simparel® SFC Shop Floor Control (SFC) solution at its Summerville, S.S., headquarters. The 31-year old company expects that replacing its legacy business system with the all-in-one solution will provide the visibility and control it needs to grow and sustain both its U.S.-based manufacturing and imported products distribution components of its business.

According to Grand Forest President Carrie Bovender, “We are a small company that strives to always do things in the most proactive and efficient way possible. We need to stay up to date with technology in order to maintain our commitment to domestic manufacturing and provide our customers with the best quality and service. When we recognized that our current system could no longer meet our needs, we started searching for an ERP that could support our continued growth. After evaluating eight different systems, we found in Simparel the flexibility we need in the import/distribution side of our business, as well as a fully integrated SFC solution that can drive greater efficiency and transparency in our manufacturing operations. This unique balance of capabilities, along with the fact that their system is built specifically for the apparel and sewn products industry, made Simparel our best-fit solution.”

Grand Forest plans to leverage the real-time shop floor control and incentive payroll management capabilities in Simparel SFC to increase the efficiency of its production workflow and payroll processes. The flexible order management and fulfillment capabilities built into the Simparel ERP and Warehouse Management (WMS) modules are expected to improve inventory management tasks and improve speed and accuracy of retail customer deliveries.
