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
