DeSL announces that elope Inc, a Colorado based wholesale company specializing in high quality whimsical wearables, has gone live with DeSL's PLM solution and is already realizing significant benefits from its recent implementation.

elope was established in 1993 by founders Kevin and Keith Johnson . The company has always been on the cutting edge of innovation and in 2001 expanded into new factory facility in China with a key focus on socially responsible business practices and dedication to fair trade. In 2012, elope embarked on a PLM project to help support the continued growth of the company and selected DeSL following a comprehensive vendor evaluation process.

Carolye Asfahl , COO, elope commented, "elope is already seeing major improvements from our DeSL implementation. We wanted one system visible to all departments, including our production team overseas, to increase our work efficiency and information consistency. A positive outcome I did not expect was how quickly our overseas teams are adopting the system." Carolye continued, "PLM is especially helping with our sample management process which previously required many people and different spreadsheets.

There were many opportunities to miscommunicate and confuse the situation on samples. Now, with DeSL's PLM module, we are seeing huge improvements, no confusing spreadsheets, and our overseas team is even driving us to be better users of the system."

Marc Friedman , VP North America commented, "Following their competitive vendor selection process, we were absolutely delighted that elope selected DeSL. Since then we've been able to develop a real partnership with the elope team, which has resulted in a highly successful 'go-live'. As Carolye herself stated, the DeSL PLM solution has already delivered immediate benefits and improvements for the company and they are now in the process of implementing our SRM solution which will cover their entire purchase order management processes, including capacity management and product tracking down to individual SKU level. Another key deliverable from the SRM project will be vendor compliance management."

DeSL is a global company delivering integrated web based solutions for the Fashion, Apparel, Textile and Footwear sectors. The company can already count leading global brands as customers including Calvin Klein, VF Corporation, Men's Wearhouse, Bravissimo, Nautica, GRI Group plus many more. Applications include PLM, ERP, SRM and E-Commerce modules, designed specifically for fashion & footwear companies operating in retail, wholesale and manufacturing sectors. 

In 1988, Kevin and Keith Johnson embarked on a journey to the far corners of planet Earth collecting and designing hats that made everybody laugh. In 1993, elope (Everybody's Laughing on Planet Earth) was formed.
