Menswear Leader Louis Raphael Replaces Legacy Software With RLM FashionManager

LYNDHURST, N.J. — August 9, 2011 — RLM Apparel Software Systems Inc. announces that renowned men’s
pant brand Louis Raphael has begun implementation of the FashionManager™ enterprise software
solution at its Brisbane, California headquarters. The company is replacing its 17-year-old
business system with RLM’s modular, fully-integrated Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Product
Lifecycle Management (PLM), and Financial Management Software (FMS) solution. In addition to
gaining important new system capabilities, Louis Raphael expects the new system to increase
operational efficiencies and streamline business processes for more than 150 employees and vendor

According to Harry Ji, Vice President of Information Technology at Louis Raphael, “As the
fashion industry continues to grow more competitive, we want to make sure that we are positioned to
seize the opportunities of an economic recovery. To maintain our edge, we recognized the need to
equip our teams with the most up-to-date technology possible. With FashionManager, we can manage
our entire business with a single system.”

Configured specifically to Louis Raphael business requirements, FashionManager will speed and
simplify management of everything from materials management and order processing to distribution
and EDI. Based on the popular Java® platform, the RLM software will provide Louis Raphael teams and
business partners with a superior user experience through a familiar and intuitive graphic

“We are most impressed with the FashionManager user interface”, added Ji. “The fact that it
is so fashion and user- friendly will make this an easy transition for all of us. It will also help
us reduce the learning curve for new employees and suppliers. It gives us lots of new time-saving
tools like spreadsheet integration and a built-in vendor portal. Our Asian supply chain partners
will also benefit as it becomes easier and more efficient to access purchase orders, print labels,
and perform many other supply chain tasks directly in our system.”

Opting for in-house deployment, Louis Raphael is installing FashionManager on new highly
reliable and secure IBM® Power® 720 Express servers. The company expects a rapid implementation due
to the high levels of usability, functionality, and industry best practices that come standard in
the system.

“We are pleased with the opportunity to work with Louis Raphael as they move their operations
forward”, noted RLM Vice President Andy Lynn. “We applaud them for recognizing the limitations of
old technology in today’s highly competitive and time-sensitive business environment. Through
FashionManager, we look forward to helping them achieve significant business improvements and reach
their full potential.”
