TradeStone Software, delivering Merchandise Lifecycle Management (MLM) solutions that unify the design, sourcing, ordering and delivery of retail goods, announced Ascena Retail Group has gone live with PLM for Retail and Collaborative Sourcing in 18 weeks at its subsidiary, Tween Brands, which encompasses both the Justice and Brothers retail brands.

TradeStone's Merchandise Lifecycle Management suite is enabling Ascena to drive collaboration, enhance consistency and improve efficiency across the organization.

The first phase of the broader Merchandise Lifecycle Management transformation encompasses key capabilities in TradeStone’s PLM for Retail and Collaborative Sourcing modules including material, color and artwork libraries, color palettes, design intent, points of measure, tech pack development including sample management, RFQs, offers, and three-way sourcing with the company’s international sourcing offices.

User adoption and feedback has been very positive with quick wins including a reduction in time and manual labor, and automated workflow process and communication between designers, tech designers and vendors.

We look forward to what the next phase will bring.”

We are proud to be setting the industry standard for quick implementations that ensure continuity and enhance user adoption.”
