TXT Retail, an Aptos company and a provider of IT solutions for luxury, fashion, and specialty retail sectors, has announced that Eminence, a French innerwear firm, will deploy the TXTPLM solution to streamline processes for creating and managing its collections. The solution will be leveraged across Eminence’s two main brands, Eminence and Athena.

The TXTPLM solution will support Eminence in managing all phases of the product lifecycle: the marketing brief, which defines what to sell in which markets and channels, the design and product development, as well as a detailed management of costing, the IT company said in a press release.

The project will span the entire organisation involving over 80 users in the marketing, merchandising, design, finance, quality, product development, and supply chain departments.

“We manage our collections from the selection of the thread to the final product. We have a 15-year-old tool focused on supporting technical development and pricing. With TXTPLM, we want to go beyond that by integrating all stakeholders of the process such as the style department, marketing, finance, R&D, purchasing, and quality so that they can all be informed and participate in real time to the progress of each activity,” Eric Abriat, buying and supply chain director at Eminence said.

“With the use of TXTPLM, we also expect to define more precise costing at the beginning of the process so that we can focus our development activity and our resources on the most promising projects,” Abriat added.

After a thorough evaluation of product lifecycle management solutions, Eminence was impressed with TXTPLM’s ability to manage the complexities of the textile sector, particularly in the underwear category, which includes the combination of sizes and cups in bras, the management of multi-level bill of materials down to the thread, and alternative production and procurement routings. Eminence will also manage with TXTPLM a wide assortment of prepacks — such as t-shirts, boxers, and socks coming in the same size but different colours — that are sold in supermarkets and hypermarkets as well as online.

“We are proud to work with a group like Eminence that is able to combine tradition and innovation, while always focusing on the authenticity of its brand and the highest levels of service to its customers. TXTPLM is a best fit for textile and apparel companies managing an integrated value chain, from concept to customer, ready to take on the challenges of global expansion and multi-channel operations,” Noel Goggin, Aptos CEO and culture leader said.
