Affordable Luxury Brand RAOUL Selects FashionManager ERP Solution
LYNDHURST, N.J. — October 10, 2012 — RLM Apparel Software Systems Inc. announces that women's
luxury apparel and accessories brand RAOUL has selected the FashionManager™ software solution to
manage its business operations in the U.S. market. The company has begun the planning phase of
implementation for the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution in its New York headquarters.
Key among the initial business improvements the company expects to achieve through the new system
is streamlining the global supply chain and distribution processes.
According to President of Sales Karen Katzman, "As a globally expanding business, we recognized the need to update our systems to take advantage of the latest advancements in fashion technology. We chose RLM not only because their systems give us the tools we need to solve today's challenges, but also offer the full range of fashion capabilities we need as we grow into the future. We look forward to achieving measurable benefits with their systems."
To meet the fast-growing supply chain and distribution needs of RAOUL, the FashionManager ERP solution will leverage an existing integration point with apparel fulfillment specialist Bergen Logistics to improve visibility and control over third-party logistics (3PL) processes such as warehousing and order fulfillment. This integration enables FashionManager to fully automate the finished goods receiving process by replacing manual entry and interaction with automatic processing of electronic Advance Shipping Notices (ASN) to Bergen. By transmitting order pick tickets and shipping information, the system can automatically create shipping cartons and generate invoicing. Sharing of customer returns information will also streamline credit processing and make returned goods available for quicker resale.
"We are pleased with the opportunity to provide solutions for such a fast growing global brand", noted RLM Vice President Andy Lynn. "As a Bergen Logistics client, RAOUL will be able to leverage our pre-configured integration to achieve fast and significant results in streamlining operations and improving accuracy. Because this and many of our other system capabilities align well with their specific needs, we expect RAOUL to meet and exceed their expectations with FashionManager."
