TXT Retail, provider of end-to-end planning solutions in retail, has partnered with ebp consulting, a global firm which operates with extensive process and retail expertise, to support its expansion in the Asia Pacific markets.
Under the agreement, ebp consulting will work alongside the TXT team in selling and implementing the TXT Retail suite of end-to-end Planning solutions, in particular for Asia Pacific customers, thus reinforcing TXT's penetration in the region.
ebp will focus on the entire TXT Retail offering, including Merchandise and Assortment Planning, Forecasting and Replenishment, Allocation, Fashion PLM and Supplier Collaboration.
ebp consultants have been trained on the TXT AgileFit methodology and have already been involved with projects at leading TXT clients.
"We have chosen ebp consulting for their presence in China and Hong Kong, their deep knowledge of planning and sourcing processes in fashion and retail, as well as their successful track record in making their customers happy," commented Anton Pershin, Sales Vice President EMEA and APAC at TXT Retail. "Together with ebp, we will be able to capitalize on the many exciting growth opportunities in the region delivering more value to retailers. They will help our customers in the region by supporting them locally with their process and solution knowledge."
ebp management consulting has gained its reputation thanks to a unique mix of global understanding of retail, omni-channel environments, supply chains, operations, logistics and sourcing, as well as the relevant people, process and information technology factors.
"We are delighted to join TXT's global partner network," said Michael Gamper, President and Managing Director at ebp. "The retail industry has never been as dynamic and under as much pressure to innovate, and particularly in APAC. The exclusive combination of best practices and AgileFit solutions offered by TXT Retail represents a strong enabler for those retailers who are looking to optimize their end-to-end planning and Omni channel presence."
"TXT's full suite of offerings provides a solid and comprehensive platform. This is very timely for retailers – both offline and online operators in APAC to further streamline and optimize. We are very excited to take our collaboration with TXT to the next levels in Asia," added Frank Yan, VP and Managing Director at ebp Asia.
"TXT holds leadership positions in Europe, is growing fast in North America and is highly committed to expand in Asia Pacific. Together with TXT's direct investments in the region, new resources and the opening of the Hong Kong subsidiary in addition to our Sydney office, the partnership with ebp consulting marks another important step in the direction of becoming the global leader in planning solutions for Luxury, Fashion and Retail," concluded Simone Pozzi, EVP Managing Director TXT Retail.
