Manufacturer selects Apriso’s FlexNet as a next-generation platform for manufacturing operations management, to help manage the firm’s strong expected growth
June 27, 2011 - PRLog -- LONG BEACH, CA — June 27, 2011 — Apriso, a leading provider of manufacturing software solutions, today announced L'Occitane, an international manufacturer and retailer of skincare, body care, fragrance and hair care products, has selected Apriso’s FlexNet as their enterprise Manufacturing Execution System (MES). Apriso will help L'Occitane manage their strong growth by standardizing production, weighing and dispensing and packaging operations across their enterprise, as part of an overall manufacturing transformation initiative to continuously improve operational throughput and excellence.

Inspired by Provençal traditions, L'Occitane creates high quality, efficient and sensorial products formulated with traceable, natural and active ingredients offering the experience of well-being. The firm has been experiencing considerable growth, necessitating reevaluation of select operational processes for greater efficiency. This need, coupled with the prospect of opening new factories in the future, led to the selection of Apriso, primarily based on these three evaluation criteria:

•   Proven, powerful solution for quality execution and implementation
•   Ease of use
•   Scalable solution was aligned well with the business

It is critical that each of L'Occitane’s manufacturing processes is performed flawlessly and consistently, across their entire organization, to ensure the highest levels of product quality and customer satisfaction. Apriso will help to ensure this objective is achieved, with a process-based solution for manufacturing operations that readily supports continuous process improvement on an enterprise basis.

“Our selection of Apriso was largely based on demonstrated experience within our industry. By treating manufacturing operations as an enterprise process where real-time visibility and control is effectively delivered to each of our operational functions and geographic locations, we expect to achieve greater operational efficiency and higher quality for a lower total cost,” explained Jean-François Gonidec, Manufacturing and Operational Excellence General Manager at L'Occitane. “As a platform-based solution, FlexNet offers unique advantages, including ease of use, acceleration of deployment and the support for future continuous improvement that were simply not available from other vendors in the marketplace, based on our due diligence and selection process.”

“Having worked with many Health and Beauty manufacturers over the past several years, our knowledge of best practices within this industry has steadily grown. Our relationship with L'Occitane will continue to expand this knowledge base while helping to steadily modernize and improve their operational performance, manufacturing excellence and customer satisfaction,” stated Rick Gallisa, industry director for consumer goods at Apriso.
