Clothing brand Fat Face makes IT fit with Prologic CIMS V7.7

Fat Face, the active lifestyle clothing brand, has gone-live with Prologic CIMS V7.7, the specialist multi-channel fashion business software. The development of this newest version of Prologic CIMS is in part the result of extensive collaborative work to improve Fat Face's allocation and replenishment processes.

Following a series of business improvement investigations, Prologic was able to ascertain Fat Face's precise supply chain needs and develop the software accordingly. One of the many improvements within Prologic CIMS V7.7 is the ability to set up highly flexible grading structures and then model initial allocations prior to despatch, this is then followed through with enhanced best-practice replenishment algorithms.

This was a specific requirement of Fat Face and a prime motivation in opting for Prologic CIMS V7.7. Simon Shutt, Merchandise Manager at Fat Face comments, “Following an extensive business process review with Prologic, we have been working together with them to collaboratively develop V7.7. The new functionality which is contained within this upgraded version of Prologic CIMS has significantly improved our grading, allocation and replenishment processes, to the extent that the time spent setting up both gradings and allocations has been halved.”

Shutt continues, “The return on investment has begun immediately – using the new functionality within Prologic CIMS, we have been able to free up resources for value-adding tasks, improving our stock allocation accuracy and ensuring that the correct lines and levels of stock are in the right places. This will lead us to increased full-price sales, lower markdowns and a higher achieved margin.”

The Prologic CIMS model is based on responsive and continuous improvement to a single version, single database product. All of Prologic's customers operate in the fashion and lifestyle sector, so improvements are of value to all customers. This means the rate of functional enhancement is far greater than that which would be achieved by each customer making their own individual improvements, and also that customers will benefit from stability, low cost and the robustness of a single system.

Sam Jackson, Chief Executive of Prologic comments, “The development of Prologic CIMS to incorporate the specific needs of a member of our customer base is a striking example of our corporate ethos. We regularly canvas the opinions and needs of both our customers and prospects in order to ensure that the functionality we provide tends to the most current and immediate needs of the industry.”

Stock market-listed, Prologic plc is a specialist provider of software, services and consultancy to the fashion & lifestyle sector. The company's enterprise software application, CIMS, is a web-deployed, single solution, multi-channel business system designed to meet the complex needs of the sector. Modules include planning, merchandising, store systems, sourcing, warehousing, wholesale, franchise, eCommerce and reporting.
