Failed ERP Implementation Pushes Apparel Manufacturer to the Tipping Point 


Sector:  Apparel Manufacturer/Distributer


Scale & Scope:  ERP implementation failure, Customer defection, Replenishment crisis, Financial irregularities, CRO role, Sourcing, Chapter 11 filing & emergence in six months.


A key investor hired INVIGOREN for a five-week operational audit after he learned that a company he invested in nine months earlier, not only needed additional capital, but its largest Customer might defect.  The audit revealed it was a rapidly deteriorating situation that appeared to be terminal, and yet INVIGOREN was retained for an extended period.  The audit quickly evolved into coaching, an intervention, and to a CRO role with the company entering Chapter 11 protection over a six month period.  The company emerged from protection in six months and a day later.  Over the next three months INVIGOREN transitioned the helm to new leadership, with the entire engagement spanning approximately thirteen months.
