Adams Childrenswear commissions Merret .NET from Retail Assist

Retail solutions and services provider, Retail Assist, has announced that its long-standing client, Adams Childrenswear, has commissioned it to provide a supply chain and merchandising solution to replace its current systems.

This is the first contract for the .NET version of Retail Assist's Merret application. Adams will use Merret .NET for its merchandising and distribution centre management. It will also utilise Merret BI for business intelligence and reporting.

The rationale is for Adams to operate a single all-encompassing solution that supports planning, and interfaces with its automated sortation warehouse system and e-commerce, replacing current systems such as JDA and Business Objects.

Explains David Carter-Johnson, Chief Executive of Adams: “Retail Assist is a trusted long-term partner. By implementing Merret .NET, we will gain a modern, flexible and fully-supported packaged solution that will make us more productive, giving us better management information and control.”

Adams is confident that this new system will help to make its business more dynamic and transparent as well as providing better functionality than its current systems. As a packaged product, Merret .NET can be easily extended at no additional cost to support Adams' growing multi-channel, multi-site and international businesses.

The solution will provide in-season planning, allocation and replenishment, inward & outward distribution, management of product, pricing, purchase orders, warehousing and distribution, together with merchandising analysis, business intelligence and store back- office.

Comments Nigel Illingworth, Product Director at Retail Assist: “Merret .NET will give Adams a raft of benefits including the agility to support its growth. The company will gain from increased functionality, improved integration with its existing systems and a low total cost of ownership.”

Celebrating its 75th year in business, the retailer prides itself on being the UK's only children's clothing specialist with a distinctive brand proposition. The company now has 260 stores in the UK and Eire and 116 international franchise stores alongside 'mini mode' trading in 330 Boots stores.

Retail Assist has worked with the retailer since 1999. The companies recently renewed their IT outsourcing relationship in a £multi-million 5-year contract.
