Jason Wu Implementing Cloud-Based Fashion Manager Solution
LYNDHURST, N.J. — May 29, 2013 — RLM Apparel Software Systems Inc. (http://www.ronlynn.com),
solutions provider of choice to leading and emerging fashion companies, reports that prestigious
designer Jason Wu has begun implementation of its FashionManager™ enterprise software solution at
its New York Garment District studio. When fully implemented, the company will leverage the
system's integrated Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP),
Warehouse Management (WMS), and Financial Management (FMS) capabilities to manage the
concept-to-consumer operations for its complete line of women's designer Ready-to-Wear, bags, and
shoes. By replacing existing software and adding significant new fashion-focused capabilities, the
FashionManager all-in-one cloud solution promises to streamline business processes, enhance supply
chain visibility, and increase overall business efficiency.
According to Gustavo Rangel, CFO of JWU LLC, "With our strong domestic and international growth, a centralized system was necessary to keep up with demand. The fully-integrated Cloud-Based Fashion Manager Solution will play a key role in increasing productivity, and streamlining business operations."
Jason Wu's design team and merchandisers will use the FashionManager PLM toolset to enhance line planning and adoption processes; and to integrate Adobe® Photoshop® designs into line sheets, tech packs, and bills of material (BOMs). Product development teams will leverage increased process visibility and cost controls to manage sample fabrics, track product samples, and manage overall product collaboration.
In addition to extending fabric purchasing and inventory management to the production level, FashionManager ERP will manage the complete order-to-cash process. Integrated Supply Chain Management (SCM) tools will enable Jason Wu to issue production orders and manage vendor deliveries. Advanced WMS order fulfillment capabilities in the system will support improved inventory allocation, packing and shipping; while built-in Electronic Data Exchange (EDI) tools enhance retail collaboration and compliance.
Integrated FashionManager financials will be used to manage receivables, payables, and general ledger transactions and provide enterprise-wide reporting and business intelligence. FashionManager will also be integrated with the web-based JOOR wholesale marketplace platform to give the Jason Wu sales team access to up-to-date product information, inventory levels, and connect seamlessly with order fulfillment systems.
"We are pleased to be working with Jason Wu," noted RLM Vice President and Partner Andy Lynn. "Like many other fast growing companies, they are embracing the power of our fashion-proven solutions and the efficiencies of the cloud platform. We look forward to helping them achieve their immediate and long term business goals."
