RLM Apparel Software Systems Inc. announces the release of an extensive collection of functional enhancements for its popular FashionManager enterprise software solution.

Immediately available in both on-premise and cloud-based system platforms, the advanced capabilities are designed to increase individual and overall business productivity while streamlining the product development, sourcing, warehousing and distribution, customer service, and other critical business processes. RLM is making the new features available without charge to apparel, footwear, accessories, and other softgoods customers that run FashionManager.

According to Rick Lynn, RLM Vice President of Product Development, “We are pleased to deliver these important new features and capabilities for our customers. We are confident that these powerful tools will help them achieve faster, more cost-effective and competitive operations. The close partnerships that we have established with our customers helps us keep FashionManager at the leading-edge of technology.”

Key among the latest functional improvements to FashionManager are:

Sample Management
A new multi-sample fit evaluation tool enables product development teams to track the complete history of sample fit specifications, submissions, changes, and vendor compliance. Access to accurate, up-to-date fit information saves time and money in a traditionally time-consuming sample approval process. Historic fit and point-of-measure (POM) data maintained in the system streamlines development and approval of future products.

Import Cost Management
New costing capabilities in FashionManager allow companies to allocate freight and duty costs according to the volume required for each carton within a container. The resulting actual shipment costs interface with accounts payable (AP) financials to provide the most accurate import cost management possible.

Rollover Inventory Management
For styles that repeat from one season to the next, FashionManager automatically moves inventory levels to the new season while maintaining the precise current season inventory to fulfill open bookings. The system eliminates the need to change rollover style numbers and provides seasonal visibility into rollover styles.

Oversold Order Management
Using FashionManager, sales and customer service teams can more effectively collaborate and manage oversold styles and orders. A single-page view provides visibility into oversold styles down to the size level and allows users to move bookings from one item (style/color/size) on an order to another. Allocations are handled faster and more accurately with less manual communications. Automatic HTML emails can also be generated to inform about oversold quantities.

RLM's modular, fully-integrated FashionManager enterprise software solution comprises capabilities typically found separately in enterprise resource management (ERP), product lifecycle management (PLM), supply chain management (SCM), supplier relationship management (SRM), warehouse management systems (WMS), salesforce automation systems (SFA), and e-commerce systems (B2B/B2C). FashionManager is available in either traditional on-premise licensing or a cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) monthly subscription.

RLM Apparel Software is a leading provider of modular, end-to-end business software solutions designed specifically to address the needs of global fashion retailers, brands, and manufacturers.
