RLM Apparel Software Systems Inc. announces a host of system wide upgrades for its industry leading FashionManager enterprise software solution. Key among the new and advanced capabilities included in the update are tools for managing and fulfilling multichannel sales, increasing visibility and managing business process workflow, and pre-built integration for third-party ecommerce and logistics systems.

These and other important features are now available and integrated into the latest release of the all-in-one Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Warehouse Management System (WMS), Electronic Data Exchange (EDI), Financials and Enterprise Reporting solution.

According to RLM Vice President of Product Development and Partner Rick Lynn, “These improvements represent significant advancements for fashion brands and retailers. Driven by our client partnerships, we are proud to deliver the functionality that the largest and fastest growing companies consider important to their continued success. We know that by focusing on these needs, we will continue to enjoy strong demand for our FashionManager solution.”

Examples of the added and extended capabilities in the latest edition of FashionManager include:

Direct-to-Consumer Fulfillment

Suppliers to major retailers can now benefit from built-in integration with the Nordstrom Direct Drop Ship Program, Neiman Marcus Direct, and other direct to consumer initiatives. To streamline and automate the order and fulfillment process, FashionManager receives orders via EDI and automatically creates pick tickets based on available inventory. Should inventory not be available, an 870 cancellation notification is transmitted to the retailer. Inventory levels are automatically shared with trading partners to ensure accurate and up-to-date status.

Third-Party Systems Integration

FashionManager now has built-in integration with the JOOR wholesale marketplace that enables automatic downloading of ERP item masters to JOOR; and uploading of customer orders to the RLM Sales Order Module.

A new integration with Orient Overseas Container Line enables communication of ASN’s and other shipment information from OOCL directly into the FashionManger Shipment Tracking Module; providing the best possible visibility into global shipments.

Integration with the WebLinc eCommerce platform enables online orders to automatically flow into the FashionManager WMS for scan picking, packing, and shipment. FashionManager inventory and order status is also passed to WebLinc; and ecommerce sales are posted to the FashionManager General Ledger where multichannel sales are now consolidated and reported.

Process Visibility and Control

The all-new FashionManager Time & Action Task Manager enables companies to create and monitor seasonal calendars for all their important processes. It provides full visibility into the status of designs, samples, grading, fabric, and any other assigned tasks. Email notifications can be triggered as each task is updated.

Additional automatically triggered email notification options now available in FashionManager include Order Change Notification, Customer Statements, and daily Customer Invoices.

A new WholesaleFlash Dashboard offers user-configurable views of top accounts, sales by individual channels, sales for specific time periods by dollars and units, and a variety of other important performance indicators.
