A result of significant financial and time investments, the new integration seamlessly connects the RLM FashionManager Enterprise Solution (ERP) and the Bergen Warehouse Management System (WMS) to automate supply chain, warehousing, distribution and other mission-critical processes.
According to RLM Vice President Andy Lynn, “With so many fashion companies embracing the benefits of 3PL services, we saw an opportunity to create a more powerful link between their core business systems and outsourced warehouse services. By combining the expertise and resources of Bergen and RLM, we have truly raised the bar for management and control in this all-important area of operations. With the high level of integration we now offer, our clients can streamline the flow of information and significantly improving their visibility into the shipping, inventory, and delivery status of their goods.
To better manage inbound goods expectations and improve receiving accuracy, the integration enables FashionManager to automatically provide real-time updates based on Advance Shipping Notices (ASN) provided by product suppliers. Product management within the warehouse is improved when the ERP system automatically shares pick tickets, warehouse location, UPS account, billing type, and other key information with the Bergen software.
After goods are shipped, the information flows back to ERP and invoices and ASNs are automatically generated and sent to the retailer. The integration also provides automated tools to improve management and restocking of product returns; while meeting the needs of multi-channel sales and distribution models.
“We are very pleased with the results of this collaboration with RLM”, noted Bergen Logistics CEO Ron Roman. “RLM came into the project with the knowledge of what and how information needed to flow between the systems. Together both companies were able to develop a very powerful integration solution much quicker than otherwise possible. The result is an elegant solution that will drive competitive advantages for our current and future joint customers. ”
