With aggressive growth plans for servicing both global buyers and the Indian retail sector, Gokaldas Exports have selected Fast React Systems to help them to develop and implement best practices in production planning and control.
Dinesh J. Hinduja, executive director marketing and production says, "Gokaldas Exports selected FastReact as it wanted a world-class planning system tailored to the specific requirements of apparel industry and with a proven track record of successful implementation and use over many years.
"Fast React will ensure that we adopt a disciplined and systematic approach to production planning which is a complex activity in the apparel industry, particularly so for Gokaldas Exports, which has 30 factories and processes over 400 styles a month to produce three million garments."

"We are delighted to be working with Gokaldas Exports on this exciting project. FastReact complements existing systems by extracting order information to a highly flexible and graphical production plan, thereby enabling the business to make more effective planning decisions, improve production efficiency and maximize on time delivery. Through a focused project approach, together with the GE team, we aim to provide return on investment in less than 12 months," says Andrew Brown, CEO of Fast React Systems.
