Escalate Retail, the leading provider of solutions that help retailers reinvent the shopping experience for their customers, announced that Century 21, a discount department store offering high-end designer merchandise, has successfully implemented Escalate's Enterprise1 ERP solution for management of the retailer's merchandising, inventory and financials.

Known to celebrities, professional athletes and “fashionistas” as the best kept secret in Manhattan, Century 21 is by far the city's most ambitious, fashion-forward discount retailer accommodating thousands of bargain-thirsty shoppers every day. The retailer chose Escalate's Enterprise1 to more effectively keep pace with the enormous amount of inventory that goes through the store every day.

After thoroughly evaluating the retail industry's most prominent software vendors, Century 21 selected Escalate's Enterprise1 because of the functionality and scalability of the solution, in addition to Escalate's company-wide focus on multi-channel retailing and experienced professional services team. “Enterprise1 has driven more discipline to our fast-moving and highly adaptive business processes in all of the major functional areas,” said Harry Roberts, CIO, Century 21.

Easy to implement and use, Enterprise1 delivers inventory, merchandising and supply chain solutions designed to drive merchandising effectiveness and inventory efficiency that lead to faster turns, higher margins and increased sales. Built on a modern technology infrastructure, Enterprise1 provides a suite of flexible applications designed to optimize operations in Century 21's demanding environment.

“Escalate's Enterprise1 software has helped us to facilitate the constant flow of high-demand merchandise throughout our organization. Additionally, the Escalate team worked closely with us to enhance the application through customization features such as vendor style number matching and time in motion improvement,” said Roberts.

“Escalate has been a reliable partner from the onset, and we look forward to successfully growing with them in the years to come,” said Raymond Gindi, CEO, Century 21.

“We are currently working with Century 21 on additional customization features for Enterprise1, and they have already implemented our Ecometry Direct Commerce Suite across their operations,” said Rich Harmatiuk, Vice President and General Manager, Escalate. “We are pleased to be working closely with Century 21 to power their next generation of growth by developing assortments that are driven by margins, revenue, brand image and return on investment.”
