Tukatech Inc., a Los Angeles-based provider of apparel industry software solutions, announces that they worked with Ventura-Star (also known as Star Garments), a major apparel manufacturer, to integrate 52 Tukatech systems into their operations, resulting in a 275 percent increase in productivity in product development.
“Since implementing the TUKAcad software we have significantly improved our productivity and efficiencies,” says Anusha Rodrigo, manager of the project at Star Garments. “Tukatech’s systems, engineering and implementation produced results beyond our expectations and their promises.”
Despite the fact that the company had 62 CAD workstations from other companies, they were still employing 42 manual pattern makers. However, after partnering with Tukatech to engineer the pattern room, Star Garments was able to streamline their processes and produce better fitting products.
“The Tukatech engineers were able to re-engineer our process and work-flow, consolidate our sample rooms, and train our personnel to engineer our patterns,” says A. Sukumaran, managing director of Star Group. “All of these changes resulted in significant improvements including a fabric savings of 2 percent , better cutting quality, increased productivity of the installed cutters, and a better end product overall.”
“We know the management was skeptical of our claims regarding projected savings and results,” says Ram Sareen, CEO-Founder TUKAgroup. “However, through this partnership we have been able to achieve tremendous results for our client.”
