FABRIX makes Ambler “adaptable to change”

When long established New Zealand garment manufacturer Ambler & Co made the decision five years ago to upgrade its management software system, the key requirement was for one that was :adaptable to change”.

Finance manager Gordon Harper says that while the Ambler team was not unhappy with the system it had been using throughout the previous years, the company’s requirements were fast outstripping its initial requirements. As the company expanded its presence in the local and export markets so, too, did its requirements for improved efficiencies.

Ambler, which has a background of over 80 years in garment manufacturing, has grown far beyond its original shirt and pyjama specialisation. Its renowned Summit label has now been joined by a big lineup of others – among them being Klipper, Van Heusen and Pierre Cardin – covering the entire garment spectrum.

Gordon’s quest for the new management software system led him to DDNC and that company’s FABRIX, a wholly New Zealand developed and written software package.

“We required a system that was not narrow in its application,” he says. “There were a number of special issues we wanted to achieve. FABRIX has enabled us this versatility”.

Its versatility has also impressed David Ambler, managing director of Ambler & Co, particularly in regard to the speed of response to queries and information.

“We like to think that our systems are user friendly,” says Gordon, “and FABRIX certainly provided this system.

Phil Jones at DDNC, says that “the FABRIX management software tailored for Ambler & Co includes programmes for bar code scanning for production performance bonuses and staff productivity reporting, WIP, among many others.

“Integration of the FABRIX modules from sales order through production, through to general ledger and the ability of DDNC to react quickly to Ambler’s requests, all count toward a successful relationship that is vital between a system user and supplier.
