JBS is known as the largest supplier of underwear in Scandinavia. Underwear is still its speciality, but it has greatly expanded its product range to include new business areas. JBS changed its name to JBS Textile Group A/S and is hosting an array of different brands, sending out a total of over 100,000 products from its warehouse every day.
As a global multi-brand company, JBS has offices in Sweden, China, Dhaka and Denmark. A significant challenge for JBS has been maintaining efficiency throughout the entire supply chain, as it struggled to connect workflows across the different offices. To ensure a smooth and effective workflow, JBS needed to improve connections between the international offices.
Struggling with ineffective workflows
For JBS, it is all about making everyday clothing everyone can enjoy. The desire to meet a fast-moving market required more effective and structured daily workflows to monitor its process from idea to finished sales samples. Working with small post-its, Excel sheets and information in individual inboxes, all while juggling 16 brands and private label production, JBS acknowledged the need for a redesigned workflow routine. Therefore, it began to look for a solution to connect departments to implement efficiency as a core basis for the entire organization.
Organizing processes to align global departments
JBS can now focus on value creation and spend less time on information search. Daniel Kirk Sørensen, Buying Manager and Head of Product Development at JBS Textile Group A/S, shared a few words with us about his search for a solution that could control all steps and deadlines that JBS needed to meet the challenge.
Delogue PLM is now the online communication platform we are using between design, product development, pattern designers, buyers, merchandisers, QC and suppliers. Communication about prices, designs, deadlines etc., in local mailboxes is now over and we share all information with each other in Delogue PLM. This is a huge help for us and there is an amazing appreciation for working in Delogue PLM among the employees, as it has made their job much easier.

Connecting all stakeholders to a single source of truth
It was important for JBS that all its many offices could easily implement Delogue PLM for all suppliers. The team appreciated the user-friendly and intuitive look of the platform. It was able to handle tasks, processes and overviews effectively while adding value for the suppliers. JBS was happy to experience that several suppliers already knew Delogue PLM from other customers, smoothing the onboarding process.
At Delogue, we are proud to help JBS grow by focusing on the core values of its business: making valuable textiles and products.
