Halston Selects RLM’s FashionManager™ ERP Software

New York City-based luxury fashion label Halston has implemented sales, order and shipping
components of Fairfield, N.J.-based end-to-end business software solutions designer RLM Apparel
Software Systems Inc.’s FashionManager™ Web-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) software at
its headquarters. Working in a modular manner, the company eventually will apply the software to
its entire design-to-delivery business process.

“As a fast-growing global distributor of apparel, footwear and accessories, we wanted a
business solution that could quickly give us full functionality right out of the box,” said Jeff
Green, vice president, finance, Halston. “In addition to the requirements associated with multiple
product types, such as footwear pre-packs and size runs, the ability to manage multi-currency was
very important to us. RLM offered all of that in a system that required no hardware purchases,
minimal IT support, and a very low upfront investment.”

“The roll-out has gone very quickly. We were up and shipping in 45 to 60 days,” Green
continued. “Our first priority was to use the system to accomplish sales, order, costing and
shipping activities. Now we are setting up raw materials so that we can track our piece goods for
the spring line. Going forward, we plan to go online with the financials components, warehousing,
and the product development pieces.”
