ecVision and Kurt Salmon Associates Release Change Management Whitepaper

ecVision, an award-winning provider of product lifecycle and supply chain software solutions, and Kurt Salmon Associates (KSA), the leading management consulting firm specializing in the retail and consumer products industries, recently released a joint whitepaper that is available for free download.

A key element to any software automation project is Change Management. KSA offers Change Management support as part of its consulting services to assist during and after implementation of PLM and supply chain solutions to retailers working in a global environment. In this paper, KSA discusses its approach to change management, which is centered on communication, education and training, risk management, and organizational alignment. Rather than reacting to change, KSA's approach addresses it proactively, which helps companies understand and successfully assimilate to the change as it occurs, making the odds of success of change adoption much greater and minimizing risk of failure.

Being a customer-focused company means more to ecVision than just selling software. ecVision realizes that even the most successful enterprises can experience failure because they unsuccessfully manage change when implementing a software solution. ecVision can deliver the "right" technology, our customers can deliver the "right" people to utilize that technological solution, but there is still the need for the "right" strategy to proactively manage all of this change. As a premier consulting firm in the retail and consumer products space, KSA is a natural fit for ecVision customers. It focuses on product development, global sourcing, and supply chain management, and it has an implementation bias -- designing solutions based on real-world experience.

For 10 years, ecVision has helped retailers and private label brand owners more effectively manage their supply chain and reduce logistics costs by an average of 20 percent. ecVision XpressCommerce is a web-based solution that connects retailers to their supplier network and delivers the key functions of product lifecycle management (PLM) and supply chain execution (SCE) systems in a single solution. Industry-leading companies; including Phillips-Van Heusen, New Balance, JCPenney, Abercrombie & Fitch, BonTon, Timberland and others; use ecVision's award-winning software to transform their supply network collaboration and visibility. Headquartered in New Jersey, ecVision has offices in Hong Kong and China, in addition to a partner network in 15 countries providing local support.
