Geac Wins US$800,000 Software and Services Contract With Prominent Hong Kong-Based Clothing Manufacturer

    Singapore and Markham, Canada (ots/PRNewswire) -

    - Smart Shirts Limited Purchases Geac RunTime Product Lifecycle Management Solution to Meet Changing Customer Demands, Improve Internal Communications and Efficiency

    Geac (TSX: GAC, NASDAQ: GEAC) today announced it has won a contract valued at more than US$800,000 with Smart Shirts Limited of Hong Kong, a subsidiary of Kellwood Company (NYSE: KWD), a leading marketer of apparel and consumer soft goods. Smart Shirts manufactures a range of products for many major brands and retailers, including Polo Ralph Lauren, Nautica, Claiborne, Land's End, Dockers, Timberland and L.L. Bean.

    Smart Shirts has purchased a product lifecycle management (PLM) solution from RunTime, Geac's specialist division dedicated to the apparel and footwear industry. The RunTime software is expected to be used across Smart Shirts locations in Asia and New York. It will enable tighter integration and coordination of operations such as shipments, orders, and deliveries across departments at Smart Shirts. Changes in any of these will now be communicated automatically via a workflow tool within the RunTime product, which will also maintain a history of any changes. In addition, the Geac software will help Smart Shirts work more closely with its clients to deliver new styles to their stores, and will maintain a knowledge base of existing and previous styles created.

    Smart Shirts plans to integrate RunTime into its existing Geac System21 ERP system. Smart Shirts has been a Geac System21 customer since 1996.

    "Our new Geac PLM solution will help Smart Shirts become a far more efficient and effective business," said Gerald Rhoads, Vice President of Administration & Finance at Smart Shirts. "We are excited about the opportunity this technology affords us to improve our customer service by more tightly coordinating our operations internally, and by streamlining key aspects of our client communications."

    "This is Geac's most significant win in Asia in several years, and further validates our organic growth efforts in the region," Charles S. Jones, Geac's president and chief executive officer, said. "On the heels of our RunTime win at sportswear manufacturer Rip Curl in Australia, we are encouraged by the market traction Geac is achieving in the fashion and apparel sector in the Asia-Pacific region."

Geac RunTime software is designed to be operated either in a distributed or centralised environment. It runs on Intel servers and can interface with most ERP and financial software systems.
